Q: Comparing two different dogs?
My dad doesn't want any type of small dogs, he wants a big dog from these two:
A Caucasian Shepherd, or a German Shepherd.
Can you guys tell me the difference between a Caucasian and a German Shepherd. Which one if more kinder, easier to train, more aggressive to "bad" people.
PS: If you could tell me the best dog breeder in SLOVAKIA . I looked on some sites, and the caucasian shepherd costs 1200EUR.
That's kind of a lot! MY last dog, a labrador only cost 700EUR.

Do you mean the Caucasian Mountain Dog from Russia?..If so,they are a specialty breed and not for everyone....the GSD on the other hand is awesome...as long as you get from a European Bloodline,not an American one,which have been (almost criminally) inbred to the point that they are ruined....Save your money and get the best you can....you get what you pay for and 750-1000 is the bottom you should pay.....I like the West German Working lines...vom Leerburgs for instance....
The Dutch/Czech lines are showing great promise also

Caucasian Shepherds are for more experienced handlers, and I don't recommend you get one at this point.
It's very rare that you'll get a dog that can tell the difference between a stranger and a bad stranger. In order to have that dog, you pay for professional training.
German Shepherds are eager to learn and willing to please. With a decent breeder, you'll have a chance with the dog. With socialisation, you'll have a friendly and well mannered dog. With training, you'll have a well trained dog.
I can't tell you anything about dog food in Slovakia, sorry. Getting a basic knowledge of what's good and what's not in dog food will mean you can make your own decision about the food just by looking at the label.

I think I purchased on of these thinking it was a German Shepherd.Her parents were from Poland,imports.These people were Polish thru and thru.She grew to be 100 pounds,28 inches at the shoulder and is lean with no fat!Comparing her to American Shepherds her jaw is heavier ,her head thicker,her hips are thick and her back is straight and thick,not sloping the the standard german shepherd.Her walk is different,kind of loping along.She is heavy -boned also.I compared her to two male German Shepherds and there is a difference.She was bigger than both of them.
