Many people feel like they want a Caucasian Ovcharka because they're rare, huge or aggressive . Make sure you are ready to take on socializing , training and daily grooming of your dog. These dogs are dangerous when they are not properly trained.
People ask all the time if these dogs are good with kids. If the dog and child are properly trained, they should be fine. That being said, letting your kid ride on the dog is not properly trained. NO DOG should ever be left alone with a child.
Protective-loving and loyal to owners-even tempered-confident-stubborn-overprotective of family and territory-can have big vet bills (they're big dogs)
If your looking for a big fluffy friendly dog, everyone can pet, get a Saint Bernard or Newfoundland. If you want an intimidating dog, look at Rottweilers or Mastiffs. Caucasian Ovcharkas require a life long commitment. If your dog bites someone, that is your fault. Not the dogs. You're responsible for your dog.
If your dog kills a neighbors cat, your fault. Bites the mailman, your fault. Snaps a your childs friend, your fault. These dogs must be socialized, trained and contained in at least 6 foot fence.
You need to devote time walking and playing with your puppy. The breed is not particularly active, but about an hour of walking a day is needed.
Your puppies exercise needs will change as it grows. Keep exercise limited to short walks and play sessions with a younger puppy, help reduce any strain on undeveloped joints.
