Ethan Brost: Is a caucasian shepherd dog, good for guarding, and a good pet but for one person only? I know from wiki that this dog is rather intelligent but can be insolent and refuse to listen at times. It says that they also can be fairly aggressive towards people they do not know and with incorrect handling, this can be problematic.

Only very experienced owners/trainers should own this dog with lots of time to train and socialize it from 8 weeks. Do not get it as a guard dog or pet unless you have both of the above. They can grow to 90cm at the shoulder & 110 klgs, although most are 75-80cm (males) & 70-80 klgs (males). they are also a kill on attack breed. They don't chase to scare or bite to warn, they eliminate threats by killing it, so restraint has be trained into them from an early age & is really not easy to do.
Hope this answers your question.

This is a strong, stubborn breed and I highly suggest doing your research. They can be VERY aggressive if you do not socialize and train them when the are young. This is a breed that you must take with you everywhere as a puppy so they get used to other animals and people and dont become un-manageable as an adult. However they have a natural protective instinct and are great one person dogs; but you still must socialize this breed so they dont hurt people, which they will do if you do not train them and socialize them (they will perceive every new person as a threat, so you MUST MUST MUST socialize).

They are quite territorial dogs, and very protective of their family. These dogs have attacked many people because they are protecting. They are the most loyal dogs to their family, but they are naturally aggressive dogs, or not aggressive, just naturally protective, and it runs in their genes.
Answer by Jeannine de Palma
Anyone who buys a Caucasian should buy it as a guard dog first pet second. They are not nannies and have strong guard instincts.
