The Caucasian Ovcharka is a muscular, athletic dog that is powerfully muscled and boned in contrast to its height. The head is broad and wedge-shaped, tapering slightly to a blunt nose, with high-set hanging ears that can be clipped and deep-set, oval-shaped eyes. Caucasians are vivacious, clever, and strong-willed guard dogs. While friendly and expressive with family members, the Caucasians robust defensive response and strong territorial instincts make this breed wary of unfamiliar persons or dogs.
It is not easy to train your Caucasian Ovcharka. This breed is highly strong-willed and outspoken and must be taught basic manners and good conduct from an early age.
