Fanewtski asked:
Does the Caucasian Mountain Dog attack fowl if properly introduced as a puppy?

1 Comment


The Caucasian Mountain Dog is a live stock guardian breed. This means that they were originally bred to live with / protective live stock. Fowl such as chickens, ducks, geese, ect. are considered live stock, but they are also considered 'small live stock' or 'small stock'. The Caucasian Mountain Dog is a very large breed of dog that would normally be used to live with / protect sheep, goats, horses, cattle, ect. not small fowl. If the dog is brought in as a puppy and trained properly, it may be alright. However, they are known for their protective instincts and high prey drive. Since fowl are small and can be very flighty; I do not think it would be in the best interest of the fowl to use a Caucasian Mountain Dog to live with / protect them.

Anonymous asked:
Everything in here mentions Caucasian Mountain Dogs being dog aggressive but are they cat aggressive as well?

1 Comment


The Caucasian Mountain Dog is a very protective and independent breed of dog that is known for dog aggression, yes. However, this breed can be okay with other dogs if he/she is well socialized and trained as a puppy. As for cats, I would not suggest this breed if you are going to have any small pets. Cats are included in the small pets category as they look too much like fun to chase for this breed. Because of their large size, the Caucasian Mountain Dog could accidentally hurt the cat without wanting too as well.

Anonymous asked:
If I buy a Caucasian Mountain dog when it is a puppy, and introduce it to my other dog from the start, will it show aggression and fight my other dog?

The Caucasian Mountain Dog is a very loyal, protective and naturally strong breed of dog. If you get a CMD as a puppy and raise it with other dogs, as long as the pack order is kept on track throughout the puppy-hood and adolescent age of the CMD, your two dogs should get along just fine.

Anonymous asked:
Will a Caucasian Mountain Dog accept other dogs into its pack/family?

1 Comment


The Caucasian Mountain Dog is a very protective dog with a strong loyalty to its pack. The dog as a puppy should be well socialized with other dogs and know its place in the family. If properly socialized and trained, the dog could be alright with other dogs coming into the family/pack later on during the dogs life. But be wary as this breed when not properly trained and socialized will not react well to another dog or animal in it's family/pack.
