Answer by Jane
I can tell you right now this is NOT the right dog for you. This is a working livestock guard dog, and needs experienced people to keep them working, and not bored. Large dogs that are bored can be very troublesome.
Please do your research before considering this breed. It is only going to be trouble for you, and certainly not fair to the dog, they "may exhibit ferocious and unmanageable tendencies". Certainly not a wise choice in dogs for the average person.

If you are not experienced with dogs then I personally would not recommend this breed for you.

This is not a dog for a first time owner. They are fine with their family, very protective but aggressive towards strangers and other dogs. They require extensive socializing very early on. The CO is a Russian breed ranging from 100-150lbs. and 26-30inch’s. at the withers. Very heavy coats for the weather of the country they originated from. Check the site below for more information.

Co like CAO have no ears so flat collars can slip off, martingales of chain can be best
Answer by nell77
this really depends how much time you spend training the Caucasian Ovcharka…..
You should get a large and strong collar for this doggy
Also this breed is pretty large , but not as big as a Great Dane ( if you are wondering )
Answer by •Çøšmø•
I can't tell you how large they get but maybe if you contact the breed club below then they should be able to help you.
Good luck and i hope you find the answer you are looking for.
