Overview
Originating from the Caucasus Mountain area, the Caucasian Mountain Dog was depended upon to guard villages and flocks. They were also used by the former Soviet government to guard factories and government facilities. In the United States they have earned a reputation as trustworthy service dogs. They are also known as the Caucasian Ovtcharka.
Character
A strongly muscled, powerful, and athletic breed, the Caucasian Mountain Dog possesses a very distinctive head and expression. They are most often described as "bear-like". This ferocious defender's body is slightly longer than they are tall with males being more massive and females lighter in build.

Does your Caucasian Mountain Dog bark, howl, and cry whenever you leave the house? Separation anxiety is extreme anxiety experienced by your dog when you are away from him.
Temperament
The Caucasian Mountain Dog is affectionate, demonstrative, and gentle with family members. They are highly protective of their family and territory and extremely suspicious of strangers and dogs. This breed is even-tempered, steady, and possess keen senses. Any danger, real or perceived, will result in warning growls and barking. Caucasian Mountain Dog's will not hesitate to respond with lightening-quick speed to protect what or who belongs to them.
Care
Frequent brushing is required to prevent the coat from tangles and matting. Bathing should only be done when necessary using a mild shampoo to protect the weather-resistant coat. There are no known health problems associated with the Caucasian Mountain Dog breed.

If your dog is displaying behavior uncharacteristic of his normal actions, call the Vet.
Coat
The Caucasian Mountain Dog has a double coat which is weather-resistant. The outer coat consists of coarse, longer guard hairs. The undercoat is soft, fine, and dense. There are three types of coats: long, medium, and short.
Training
The Caucasian Mountain Dog is slow to mature and is headstrong. Early socialization is a must. Caucasian Mountain Dog's will not respond to harsh or heavy-handed methods. Training should be done with firmness, fairness, patience, and reward. Teaching your dog to sit, lie down, and stay is vital to the training of your new puppy. There are several accepted methods of house training your new Caucasian Mountain Dog puppy. Consider crate training if you need to adapt your dog to a safe and confined environment for various safety and comfort reasons.
Activity
The Caucasian Mountain Dog breed is not recommended for apartment or city dwelling. They do best in a rural setting with room to roam and run and a job to do. Socialization is one of the single most important things you can do for your puppy.

The cooler months of fall, winter and spring should be no problem for a Caucasian Mountain Dog. But the hot, hot summers could be a potential problem. This breed of dog has a heavy, heavy coat of fur that needs to be brushed at least twice a week for half an hour to an hour each. Or professionally groomed once a month which will cost an average of $200.00. This must be done to rid the dog of excess fur that will over-heat him/her during the summer. If you can commit to this, as well as keeping the dog inside where there is A.C during the day, with a doggy pool and lots of water; then he/she should be okay in your area. But remember, this breed is not a breed of dog for the inexperienced owner, or someone with the possibility of financial problems. The Caucasian Mountain Dog costs a fair sum to keep up, for everything including grooming, food, space and training.

I live on the island of Maui, Hawaii. Would the tropical climate be too much (cruel) for a shorthair of the Causcasian Mountain Dog breed?

The Caucasian Mountain Dog was bred for a much colder climate and even the short haired dogs would not do well in the area that you live.

I'm very fond of large dog breeds & I've been looking for a nice guard dog for me and my son. We live in a somewhat nice area but there are always some issues going on and it makes me feel unsafe for my family. I've heard that Caucasian mountain dogs make awesome guard dogs but can be hard to handle and not so family friendly, but that is coming from websites I can't call reliable. Would this type of dog be good for me and my son? We do a lot of activities outside and are around a lot of people so socializing the dog would not be hard. If this isn't a good fit for a family what other breeds should I look at?

The Caucasian Mountain Dog is not a breed of dog for the light-hearted and for beginner or even novice dog owners. Please note that there is a different between a guard dog and a watch dog. A guard dog will alert an owner to something wrong on the property; and will then become aggressive and actively defend the property no matter what the 'threat' might be. While a watch dog will alert the owner to something wrong on the property; and then will be calm and easy going when the owners say it is. This breed is wary of strangers and needs heavy socialization, training and room. I would suggest a calmer, but still well rounded watch-dog that is both a family dog and protective. The Newfoundland. The breed is still very large, and would do very well for what you are hoping for in a family dog.

How much food would a dog of this stature eat in a single day to week?

The amount of food a dog will eat in a single day depends on several factors. Including the age of the dog, weight of the dog, how much exercise the dog gets every day, its metabolism and the quality of food it is eating. For example, an adult Caucasian Mountain Dog weighing in at 150 lbs with 1 hour of formed exercise a day eating a high quality, grain free dog food should be eating 3 - 4 cups of food a day split into two meals. However, if the dog was eating a lower quality dog food with grains/corn in it from a grocery store then he/she may need anywhere from 6 - 9 cups of food a day to get the same nutritional value. For the two I have, my male being 175 lbs and my female being 160 lbs and they get 1 hour of formed exercise a day cut into two walks. Not including training/play time they eat 3 - 4 cups of high quality, grain-free dog food a day with 1/2 can of high quality, grain-free wet dog food each split into two meals (So a quarter can each meal, so I use 1 can per day) and are very healthy. One bag large bag of food will last me an average of 3 weeks with my two dogs. So I buy 2 bags and put it into a container and it lasts me a month and a half.

What food is good for Caucasian Mountain Dog's to grow faster and bigger?

Giant breed dogs, like the Caucasian Mountain Dog are not meant to grow fast. This breed takes 2 - 3 years before he/she is full grown. You want to feed your dog a high quality, grain free large breed puppy food for the first year to a year and a half. Then change to a good, high quality grain-free adult food. Give your dog lots of big, raw/meaty bones and that will encourage a large head as the chewing will give the dog large jaw muscles and the over-all size you are looking for.
