Hayden: Caucasian Ovcharka (Caucasian Shepherd) breeders in Australia?
Do people breed them in Australia because to import they need to be 6 months and have a quarantine, and I want one as a pup because they are easier to train. there are none in shelters or anything I've seen.

I was unable to locate an actual breeder in Australia, but there are some of them within the UK. That was as close as I could come.

we have been looking for Caucasian Shepherd dogs in Australia and have found none , But there are a few scammers out there advertising pups for sale in Australia We have made inquiries about bringing one over the cost is $15000 by the time you purchase the pup all the inoculations the import costs and quarantine the pup will be 5 mths old at time of import because it has to have all its rabies shots before it can be sent over and as far as I know there are no Caucasian shepherds in Australia
$15000, how could it be? A good Caucasian Ovcharka puppy costs up to $1500, and you can buy it in the US (not always), in Europe (easily), and in Russia, of course.

The puppy must have 3 months to can get the rabies vaccine, after 30 days form the vaccine, it is required a blood test. So, the puppy will have 4 months old. After this test, the dog must remain here for 6 months old, that's the procedure, after that, the dog can go to you when he will arrive in Australia, he must remain for 10 days in quarantine. All these will be costing you between 10000-15000 AUD

There is a set procedure for a new breed into Australia to be registered with the ANKC. It is unwise for a person not to follow this procedure before they actually import. The requirements are clearly stated in the ANKC rules and regulations on the ANKC website.
The information given re quarantine requirements for importation of a dog into Australia is subject to change and unless you follow the most up to date information you will strike big problems. This information is on the Government web site. It includes a very extensive timeline which must be followed. This is why even though we have imported a number of dogs from various countries including countries that do not fall into Categories 1,2 or 3 we suggest that people use an agent for the major details.
Answer by Gordon John
To bring a Caucasian Ovcharka into Australia:
- you first have to find out what category Country the Dog is coming from
- once you have done this you will then need to find a Breeder willing to take the Puppy to the Vets for all of the following
- The puppy requires a Rabies inoculation and at the same time has blood tests done
- it is required by the Australian Quarantine to send these bloods to them or 1 of the 5 the will only accept in the World
- then continue on with the final innoculations
- from Russia you cannot import directly to Australia - it is a Cat 4 Country by Australia Law - so you need to move the puppy to a cat 3 or higher country
- then after all the tests and Needles are done you need to get an import permit issued from Australian Government - this is when you place all of the paperwork and proof of bloods taken and needles with all signed of by a Government vet from the country the puppy is currently in
- then 24 hours out from leaving this country you have to get a Government vet to lock the crate of the puppy
- I just had a Caucasian Ovcharka come from Russia - and he was placed in Slovakia for 5 months - then he flew to Bratislava in the main capital - then over to Austria - then Doha - Then Melbourne - there are NO direct flights - so a lot of pet checks and vet checks to keep the pup safe
- Then Quarantine is only 10 days if you have completed all of the requirements for the Australian Government
- if not 2 things can happen - 1 the pup stays in Quarantine longer up to 60 days at your expense if the quarantine station has the space available or they will send the pup back to where it comes from to have the vet stuff completed'

I don't think there are any in Australia. Oh, wait, apparently they're called Central Asian Shepherds over here. How odd.
Answer by Art F
It's another breed! The Caucasian Shepherd aka Caucasian Ovcharka is the most brutal Russian dog breed. It is a large, even-tempered dog with a powerful and muscular body, bear-look face, deeply set oval dark eyes, round-shaped cropped ears and low carried long tail. It has a thick and water-resistant double coat in shades of gray, brindle, yellow, rust, red or white (video). The coat may be longer or shorter depending on the region the dog comes from.
The strength and dedication of this Russian dog have made it a popular working, police and guard dog throughout Europe and the former Soviet Union states. They call it the Russian Bear Dog in America. In Russia, its name is Caucasian Ovcharka that means sheepdog in Russian.

There’s another guy who’s a liar and a fraud to he’s name is Jonty from melb be careful of him he’s dogs aren’t puré bred and is a chronicall liar charges absurd
As you’d already know as you have already spoken to this individual
I believe you know there is one that is of 5 years old here in Australia ,And many recognised breeders are aware of this dog being here are they distorting the truth aswell come on mate .Id like proof that yours are the first that’s a huge claim mate and not really the best way to get fello breeders to support your cause by being secretive an missleading .And will not do the breeding program any favours it is a mollosser breed from Georgia a land race animal they do not rely on pedergree there are a couple that can provide pedigree papers but not many.The Georgians rely on a good stable temperament healthy fit working dog that get the job done by keeping its herd alive day in day out and withstanding inhospitable conditions. As a result of good breeding practices and open minded breeders who help each other to create a healthy working livestock dog breed and maintain the best genetics available.
Minus the pissing competition that occurs now you will only bring scrutiny to this breed.what is the purposes that you intend to use them for.?attack dogs, guard dogs,livestock guardian or puppy factory for $$ I’d be confident in saying you wouldn’t be able to give a straight answer any way.
you have lost your credibility with me and many others anyway.
There is no “I” in team.
Good luck running solo
In response to alpha force k9
There is a Caucasian with fci pedigree which has been here for over 5 years and is a fine example of the breed, you make it sound as though you are the only one in Australia with them. Well you not.I have 2 one from Georgia which is not recognised and one from Russia with colour an size that does not meet pedigree But undoubtably have brilliant genetics minus the paper work they are not show dogs there working dogs that are strong an healthy, no inter breeding or show dog lines ,and why no one advertises this Is because they will fall into the wrong hands and taint its reputation.I beleive there is a pissing competition regarding this breed .They will end up like the pit bull, with this publicity its shore to cause an up roar with other breeder.And public.Which is obviously what you are trying to achieve.
Thanks for you cooperation and help with other breeder to improve our genetics a preserve the breed for what it is a land race animal “mollosser” .not fci accredited show dogs with papers .I wonder if The dog come with paper 3 thousand years ago.
Man up an be a team player.Instead of secret squirrel business that will not benifet any one but you self.An will be a backward step for the breed with that tunnel vision like attitude .

There is a bit of misninformation on this. We have the first registered breeding stock in Australia and are also the breed founder in Australia. We have lodged all ANKC foundation work for approval. We currently have 2 fully registered males and 4 regsietered females all imported from overseas. These are FCI registered with export pedigrees. These are Australia’s first registered lines and we are proud of the hard work that has gone into getting them. Anyone who claims anything other than what I have is distorting the truth as you can only have 1 breed founder for the breed in Australia and I lodged all paperwork and bond for FCI and ANKC. They are a phenomenal dog and I hope to see more in the future.
Hi. I would love to own one. How can I get in contact with you.
