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 Caucasian Mountain Dog will be between 26 - 28 inches at the shoulder on average. However, sometimes a dog can be a little taller, but true pedigreed dogs should be within the average range for the breed standard.

Would a Caucasian Mountain Dog recognize our neighbors adults and/or children or other neighborhood dogs as friend or foe?

The Caucasian Mountain Dog is extremely protective and is not a 'family pet' like a Golden Retriever or Labrador. They are serious guardian and protection dogs and will loyally protect and guard their owners/family/property from anyone they do not know. If you train your Caucasian Mountain Dog puppy to recognize which people/dogs are friends and not foe, then he/she should be easier to work with as an adult -- however, this is not a breed for weak-minded owners/new dog owners. Dog experience is needed 100% with this breed.

I own a female Caucasian dog she is the best dog I ever got and would never trade her for any other breed I have three grandchildren and play with her like she was a lab breed I would never trust a dog fully but with her it's close when I bought her I was warned she was like no other breed and they were right she is better never aggressive unless i told her to be so so anyone that can't control them I am sure they don't know what they're doing and should no own one or any breed of dog she would protect me or my children and grandchildren with her life.

Can a Caucasian Mountain Dog hunt and guard against large predators like Lions and Tigers or grizzly bears?

Unless you live in a zoo, I would see no need for the dog to be able to guard from all three of those animals. However, the Caucasian Mountain Dog is a hearty, loyal and fierce guardian/protection dog. They need an extreme amount of training and socialization to become good canine citizens. But these dogs are very protective of their owners and land. They would guard it from any outside threat that they were taught to guard from. Bears, wolves, coyote's and mountain lions would be the predators the C.M.D would protect your property from if you taught him/her to do so.
