What to consider Before Owning a Caucasian Shepherd/Ovcharka
Having a Fenced 6' tall fence for them to roam and guard.
Professional Obedience training at 6-12 months of age.
Socialization * Daily and Proper training is key.*
Do you understand that Caucasian Shepherds are naturally Aggressive to strangers? This is a normal Characteristic of the breed.
The Caucasian Ovcharka Working Dog Club of America states that the Ovcharka cannot ever have enough training or socialization. Per their guidelines, these powerful dogs should be trained in basic obedience prior to six months of age, including sit and stay with distractions, proper heeling and leash walking, manners and being neutral to other people and animals in situations such as the park or in a crowd.
The idea that the Caucasian Ovcharka cannot ever receive too much training and socialization cannot be repeated enough. With proper training and handling these dogs can and do become excellent guardians and loyal friends.
