Interesting Quotes:

"In the last 4-5 years, parvovirus in the US has been the biggest problem for kennels, even in vaccinated dogs."
(Foster-Smith Pet
Catalog, Vol. 03-57)

***

"She was a seven-month-old, gorgeous, taupe-colored devil in dogs clothing. But I loved her."
(Paul Loeb)

***

"The diet of our companion animals is deplorable. So many dogs and cats eat out of bags full of poor ingredients, rancid fats and powerful preservatives."
(Don Hamilton, DVM
from Homeopathic Care for Cats and Dogs)

***

Command; he thee obeys most readily.
Strike him; he whines and falls down at thy feet.
Call him; he leaves his game and comes to thee
With wagging tail,
offering his service meek.

If so thou wilt, a collar he will wear;
And when thou wish to take it off again,
Unto thy feet he crouchest down most fair,
As if thy will were all his good and gain.
(J. Molle)

***

"The more confidence you have in your dog, the more he will believe in you."
(From: Smarter Than You Think, by Paul Loeb)

***

"The housebound dog leads a stressed existence. It cannot express its natural behaviors: stalking, chasing, exploring, investigating."
(From: The Dog's Mind, by Bruce Fogle)

He is your friend, your partner, your defender, your dog;
You are his life, his love, his leader.
He will be yours, faithful and true
To the last beat of his heart.
You owe it to him to be worthy of such devotion.

The first thing you have to remember about this breed is that the Caucasian Ovcharka is first and foremost a guardian dog. They were bred centuries ago to guard flocks and possessions from predators and enemies - both four-legged and two-legged. Later in their history the CO was used as military and police dogs and factory guards by the Russians. Yes, Caucasians are and should be cuddly and affectionate with family members, and some are quite friendly with strangers, but it is also important to remember that this is NOT a Golden Retriever.

The Caucasian is a dog who needs a serious, responsible owner who is willing and able to become the pack leader. (Actually all dogs need a serious, responsible owner.)

The Caucasian is a dog who should never be allowed to roam the neighborhood at will. (Actually true of all dogs.)

Obedience training is a must with this breed. Socialization is a must with this breed. (Actually, all dogs should be trained and socialized.)


The Caucasian is always alert and on guard

Essentially, the Caucasian Ovtcharka is a go-anywhere, do-anything type of dog.  They will enjoy a quiet stroll down a country lane as well as a vigorous hike in the mountains.  They are always ready to jump in the truck and go (rest assured - with a Caucasian Ovcharka, your vehicle will be well guarded!).  Caucasians are hardy dogs who can handle all kinds of weather, from the 105 degrees we have here in the summer to the occasional 30 degrees below zero we get in the winter - with the exception of heat combined with humidity.
