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.
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.
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.
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.
Ownership
Help reduce the number of Caucasian Mountain Dog puppies in shelters by doing your due diligence. Many puppies are often purchased with little or no knowledge of what goes into parenting one. Uneducated decisions often leave the puppy in need of adoption and in the care of rescue groups. Bringing home a puppy into your family has many benefits but we first implore you to educate yourself. An informed decision will take into account the characteristics of the breed, your lifestyle, expected veterinary care, the demands and limitations of owning one, their activity requirements and levels of companionship required.

The average life span of the Caucasian Mountain Dog is 10 - 12 years. But life expectancy can be shortened by bad breeding practices, under exercised, and fed a poor diet.

Caucasian Mountain Dog I live on two acres, half fenced, in Oakhurst Ca. Weather is once or twice a year snow in the winter, and the odd 100+ day in the summer. Dry heat but I'm concerned about the heat in the summer with the Caucasian Mountain Dog.

If you have air conditioning and have no issue allowing your dog to spend most of the summer indoors with you, then the dog should do just fine. Fresh, cool water should be available at all times. But by allowing your Caucasian Mountain Dog to spend the hottest part of the day inside with you with the air conditioning, he/she will do just fine.

We live in the rocky mountains in Alberta Canada, What type of climate is ideal for a Caucasian Mountain Dog? And with little kids what temperament. I am a stay at home dad that's very interested in one. The feller would have plenty of space and exercise, we fish and hunt and he would come along.

The area that you live in would be fine for a C.M.D. As long as the dog's needs are met, including a grain-free diet, fresh water at all times, daily exercise, daily socialization with other dogs, people and animals and proper training. The C.M.D is a very large breed of dog that needs a firm, but gentle handler that understands that their dog was bred for guardianship. Meaning that the C.M.D can be picky with whom his/her family/owner is around and can act defensive at times that are inappropriate. It is up to the owner to train their dog to understand when and when not to be defensive. During the summer in Alberta, the dog should be allowed indoors where there is A.C to escape the heat and owner's should take precautions that their dog does not over-heat outside while doing outdoor activities. A reputable, knowledgeable and qualified breeder will be able to help you choose a puppy that will be best with your family.

The CO originates from the Caucasian Mountains so you can research that climate. Any person or animal that the CO considers his will be 'protected agressively' and 'loved affectionately'. Any person (adult or child) or animal (dog or other) not part of the CO's family will be considered a potential threat. You will need to socialize the CO to be around any potential outside (outside its family) contact as it was breed to defend its family against any and all threats. The CO is a very strong willed animal and its instict is to protect fearlessly and at its size that is formidable. You will have to work with the CO and be able to show that you are the pack leader otherwise it will assume that role itself. They are an amazing animal but be sure that you can handle it before you buy one.

A Caucasian Mountain Dog would do fine in Oklahoma as long as the dog's needs at met. ie: Grain-free, high quality food, fresh water at all times, socialization, training, grooming, and being allowed to go inside when it's too hot out.

Will a Caucasian Mountain be kind to dogs it grows up with? If I wanted to get a Caucasian Mountain and, let's say a shepherd or Labrador, and I got them as puppies, would they get along well?

The Caucasian Mountain Dog is more of a person dog then a dog dog, they prefer the company of their humans to other dogs. But, if the Caucasian Mountain Dog is raised with another dog, then normally it is fine. Please socialize your Caucasian Mountain Dog puppy as much as possible to ensure your dog has good social skills and at least tolerate's other dogs.

how are Caucasian Mountain Dogs with older children around 17? How are Caucasian Mountain Dogs with older children around 17? What is the history of turning on owners who are nice? I dont yell, spank or discipline with meanness. I am single with a 17 year old. If I am not overly assertive, is this the dog for me?

You do not have to yell or spank puppy to teach him to behave nicely. Caucasian ovcharka demands consequent and consistent upbringing. Also he must know who is his master. They do not treat their human family as their masters, they cosider them as their family and members of their pack. So You must show him that You are the leader of the pack. You will not become leader of the pack if You are the strongest member or the most agressive member, You must earn his respect. It is very similar with children raising.

Caucasians treat family members as pack members, they will treat small children like puppies... Caucasians are not pets! They can only be family members and friends, or guarding employees.

Unless you have registration paper's on the puppy, do a DNA test on the puppy, you can not know for sure if the dog is a pure bred or not without papers.

The Caucasian Mountain dog could live in the Pilbara area, but unless you plan on allowing the dog to live indoors with the A.C, it is best to find another breed of dog.
