Caucasian Shepherd: family pet or ruthless killer?

Caucasian ShepherdWe have been experiencing a steady growth in the number of enquiries for Caucasian Mountain Dogs or Caucasian Shepherds as they are also known. We’ve been trying to figure out what the increase in popularity can be attributed to, but we can only guess.

One of our guesses is that the Caucasian Shepherd breed has been featured in a National Geographic show 3 years ago in the US and this has had a long lasting effect on the popularity of the breed. Clips of the show, such as the one below, are available on Youtube, generating hundreds of thousands of views as we speak.

Popular dogs in the Middle East

Many people would think that the weather in countries like Egypt, Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain or Qatar might be too hot for dogs so they are very rare in the region. However, that couldn't be further from the truth. Even though the circumstances are not ideal for breeding, dogs are increasingly popular in the Middle East.

The two main reasons why people in the Middle East own pets are protection and pleasure.

The classic protection breeds like the German Shepherd and Rottweiler are very popular, but there seems to be more and more demand for less known breeds such as the Cane Corso and Caucasian Mountain Dog. These breeds have a natural inclination to guard the territory they live in and the people they regard as family.

There is an important distinction to make between protection or guard dogs and watchdogs. While smaller breeds can also act as watchdogs to alert the family in case of danger, guard dogs must be big and intimidating enough to threaten the possible intruder to the point of retreat.

Yes, Caucasian Mountain Dogs are big and the size of their heads can be huge. And they can be just as dangerous for intruders as their size suggests. Take my advise and do not ever try to go close to a Caucasian Mountain Dog unless the owner is present.

According to the breed standard they weight 45-72kg. I believe you can easily find CMDs close to 90kg.
