GAMGER: Do you know of a Caucasian Owtcharka breeder in US?
I'm looking for a breeder that breeds Caucasian Owtcharka dogs.
I live in Wisconsin, so somewhere in the Northern Midwest works best.
The breed is also known as: Caucasian Sheepdog, Caucasian Shepherd, Kavkaskaia Ovtcharka, Caucasian Owcharka, Caucasian mountain dog, Sage Ghafghazi, and Kavkazskaïa Ovtcharka.

PLEASE SAVE THE "BREEDING IS EVIL" SPEECHES. You'd be wasting your time and, more importantly, mine.
Just for the record, this question is for a different dog than the other question. Different dogs, different question.

I do not, but if you google your area with breeder in the search, you may find some results. Are looking you at two different dogs as I answered your other one? If you are you may be able to find some sort of scheme that deals with more high level dogs - the shepherd and the beagle.

This is not a breed for the average pet owner. I stress this very often to people who want very large and dominant breeds like the CO.
Unless you are extremely skilled and have owned very large dominant dogs in the past, I reccomend most people stay away from them. They can become a serious problem and liability if some one would get one and not train it or was a novice with dogs in general. The problem with this breed is, they are not like Rottweilers, Dobermans or Shepherds. They require someone to stay on top of them at all times.
Most breeders of the CO won't touch you with a 50ft. stick unless you have had previous experience with large dominant breeds. A couple of years ago, did a documentary on NGC about this breed and there was a guy who was literally being dragged to the ground as the dog was chasing after anything and everything, including cars. He had absolutely no control over the dog and was simply just wanting the dog for protection. The man had only owned Rotties, Dobermans, Shepherds and Pits and those breeds alone are medium-large, at best.

I recently rescued one and he is great. Not for the novice owner but I have had great luck with this abused guy.
These people will point you in the right direction
