Yes, I agree, I own two of them. They took down 7 grey wolves within 2 years. In a one-on-one fight, my male took down 4. And 3 with his mate.
And yes males are bigger than a male wolf.
Answer by OldFarmer
I imagine that both dogs joined up against a single wolf. I know sheep and cattle ranchers who tried this breed in wolf country only to in time walk away from them.
I have not found any breed effective against N. American wolves.

It's a Caucasian Mountain dog. they are supposed to be the nastiest dog there is, although to be fair there are probably some nice ones - watch this video.
they were used by the Russian military as guard dogs.
they are dogs that need to be handled by an experienced handler only
Answer by Danica
Actually, both names are correct. They are known as Caucasian Ovcharka (Mountain Dog), and Caucasian Shepard. They're amazing sheepdogs. Very headstrong, and must be taught not to hunt the livestock they're protecting.
A Caucasian Ovcharka is a fierce proud dog, that would never back down from a fight. They will stand up to man and beast alike. Even if the Caucasian Ovcharka didn't win the battle with the wolf, or was outnumbered, the Caucasian Ovcharka would still stand its ground.
Considering most people buy guard dogs in pairs, so they won't be alone in the field. Two bear-faced Caucasian Ovcharka (Mountain Dog)'s, would easily take a wolf down. That's their job.
So the answer to your question is yes.
Though they sure are adorable
Answer by Ted Greene
you are all nuts. a wolf would kill any dog including this one.
Answer by Cliff.Pitbulls #1
Ted Green, the comment you made about no dog can take a wolf. Caucasian shepherd, a one-on-one fight the Caucasian would have no trouble winning-(fact). Also, I have a pitbull under 50lbs one on one the wolf would be dead, believe it. I don't know about any other dogs but the two I wrote about would beat the wolf. I'm 47yrs old been working with dogs for 30yrs or so, nothing that calls itself a dog or wolf would ever best a game breed Pitbull-(fact).
Answer by Kevin
I don't care what breed of dog you've I would not want my dog locking ass with a wolf! First, a wolf has no choice but knows how to hunt and kill its prey that is how he or she eats they're not fed.
Answer by Aurelius
There are dogs that can hold their own bs the wolf, just depends on the way the dog was raised and if the breeding was for fighting. Pitbulls#1 is somewhat right, a Pitbull whose breeding is to fight until death would have a good chance against a wolf if it can get its neck first. Pitbulls are smaller and tend to go under to get the neck or that a guard position but again go for the neck. I’ve seen these dogs and they are feed raw meat and blood from birth which really changed a dog.
A breeder I used to know would tie cats by the neck and dip in blood then hang from a tree and the PB would shred it. Pitbull#1 is only half-ish right because other dogs can kill wolves and can definitely be more aggressive and kill Pitbulls as well. The same friend actually was a breeder for the main purpose of dogfighting to the death and some of the other dogs he bred were Rottweilers, Doberman, and chows. He said he had to keep the chows away from the other dogs because the chows would constantly attack kill them. He also said that because they were always fed raw meat from puppies the chows would sometimes eat the other dogs. I even saw a German Shepard own a Pitbull in one of the fights, got a first good bite in, and got it on the top of the neck and then the side/bottom and tore it up.
The point is there are dogs that can kill wolves and Pitts.

I just discover like most cases, people who have smaller less aggressive dogs would talk down on a Caucasian or Kangal. Those that have it will promote it. The answer is simply to own it alongside a German Shephard, Rottweiler, and a Boerboel. This breed is really impossible. Very stubborn, determined, never drops his guard, a very agile guard dog-2-4-7 alert vicious and deadly. Very long tooth that she is always in a hurry to use in attack or defense. She uses size to push down anything that stands in her way.
At 8 months she almost decapitated my very aggressive 14 months Rottweiler. I am very familiar with dogs. Some time ago(18yrs) before I got this new set of dogs in a new environment, I fed my 2 GSD’s with raw cow meat and cow blood and kept them unfed from 1 pm to the next 1 pm. That means at night they are very hungry. They grew up killing and eating very armed dangerous robbers who invaded my house( and even shot the dog) and were constantly terrorizing the vicinity.
With the temperament of my CO, I concluded this would be dangerous. My reason for feeding with raw meat and blood was to make them grow up to bite ( taste and smell blood) and kill and eat for a meal. After my incident years back, all robbers stayed off the vicinity permanently. Even with a bullet in the thigh, the dog went ahead to kill and eat. The robber is seen not just as an Intruder but as a meal. U don't train your dog as a cow or goat and want it to act on the day of battle as a lion.
A well-trained caucasian will take down any wolf for the meal. Man has been known to use knowledge and wisdom to conquer his environment. If the CO’s of the caucus mountains and Georgia were not successful in killing wolves, the aborigines would have found a better alternative. There was a good success rate. With all the efforts over the years to make the breeds less aggressive and tolerable to our present-day society, you can imagine what they were over 3000 years ago!!!
Come to Africa and see how their genes are been bastardized. Hardly will you find a pure breed. Yet I got something as Bad as what I have. In a fight to the death, size and weight, agility, Will to continue to the end for a good reason stubbornness, not to back-down, diet type, bite force( over 700psi) for that lethal bite, protective coat of fur for opponents bite will determine who comes out alive. For the normal wolve, I give it to the CO, for the large N.Wolves, it’s a 50:50 game.
NEVER will any wolves have their way to kill a real breed guard CO, not these pet dogs you guys keep and feed with can foods and as pets for your kids. An untrained real CO will still take-on on the bigger wolve till the wolve determines if the sheep is worth having in a hurry or not. Remember, the wolves need to be un-injured to fight for survival another day just like the tiger
Answer by dkoriss
Nice Caucasian Shepherd is the one who bites mercilessly any intruder and attacks any beast to defend its territory, family, and flock.
Anything less makes a BAD BAD caucasian for the last 150000 years when the crime rate was considerably lower than today.
I hope you do not mean that we have to change even a bit the temperament of this dog in the name of modern (more criminally society to my view), unless if there is a way to make it more aggressive and suspicious against strangers.
Any attempt to make this dog nice in other ways should immediately refer to a new breed with a completely different name, not even a trace indicating caucasian ovcharka/shepherd dog/mountain dog, etc.
- Is a Caucasian Shepherd dog good for guarding and a good pet?
- Should I get a Caucasian Shepherd?
- Is Ovcharka the largest dog?
It would be a CRIME to let caucasian follow the sad path of degeneration, that german shepherd, doberman and so many other, nice once upon a time breeds, took.
A CRIME against the ancestors of the breed, both dogs and humans, who struggled for centuries to inborn the specific instincts and pass the specific trait to THEIR breed, IN ORDER TO SERVE FOR GUARDING AND NONE HAS THE RIGHT TO CHANGE ANYTHING WITHIN FEW BREEDING AND SOCIALIZATION CRAP!
If one cannot handle the breed then he should choose from another breed (there hundreds out there with the eye look of the cow, caucasian MUST have the eye look of the tiger or it is not caucasian), but under no circumstances haw the right to contribute destroying the breed.
STOP ABUSING TRUE GUARD DOG BREEDS, choose Saint Bernard, Newfoundland, Leonberger, English mastiff, great dane, instead, it's a good motto to start with.
