Caucasian Shepherd, often called the Russian Bear dog, is not only a reliable guard and a fearless fighter but also a notable participant in the best dog shows.
The show dogs of the Caucasian Shepherd breed are usually softer and more polished than their ordinary fellow Caucasians but they still represent the mightiness of this magnificent dog.

At registration booth
Lady: I'm here to register my dog for the dog show.
Show worker: Ma'm....that's a bear.
Lady: No! It's a dog.
Show worker: It literally has a camper's leg hanging from its mouth.
Lady:........It's a chew toy
People also say:
GlasgowStrangers: This is a smaller version of Russian drunk bears to walk on the streets, specially designed for Russian kids. Just like a pony as a smaller horse
championmotivation: these dogs should be bred for their work skills not for the show
ANKUR KUMAR: that dog is a monster

Sami j.b: It's hard to imagine one in a dog show, I would have to think his naturally aggressive instincts have been bred out...
HalfLifeAMD: no normal dog is naturally aggressive, they are trained, mental, or ill-treated to be that way. however, dogs can be naturally protective. protective and aggressive are two different things.
Sen Craine: So I've been looking into getting a dog, and something I've noticed is whenever I see "dog show", it's like reality shifts and men don't exist anymore, every master is female.
aram34: they r so big, how can you hold them if they go mad??
Thaluckysun1: they will submit to your voice.. I remember my grandmother was small but when she would let out the banshee scream you would cower! lol

Suricatamigo: I love that breed, I’d love to have one caucasian mastiff someday.
Mady Guindin: well they are not for everybody you must learn about this breed before you get one of these beauties. They also make only friends with one person and that be the owner.
Gisisse: They are stunning dogs! My father had one, it was our family and protection dog, we police trained him and I must admit it was the most intelligent dog I had or seen! They are so loving and beautiful! But need proper training to be able to manage their natural instinct and aggression, they need time and understanding of their behavior, and of course space! This is not an apartment dog! Still so beautiful and powerful!

Those CS are beautiful dogs , Have a 1 yr old male Great Pyreneese . I have a farm with 400 acres lots or room to rome. Would a CS play well with other dogs.
Not sure. Caucasian Shepherds are very dominant dogs.
I have two Ovcharka and am looking for a third for my farm. If you are reliable, honest trustworthy breeder please get in touch. We desire full AKC registrations, paperwork, immunization record and Veterinary certification dogs are healthy and problem free.
We would suggest that you visit our pages Caucasian Shepherd Breeders in the US and Caucasian Shepherd for Sale or Adoption. You may also like to view How Much Does a Caucasian Shepherd Cost?
I own a farm in NorCal have multiple Ovcharka, my neighbors own a Great Pyrenees a German Shepard and Presa Canario all our dogs play together each morning and throughout the day. They all get along great with no problem. Males, females, black, white, tan, none of these “violent dangerous” dogs fight or act crazy at anytime. We have visitors and delivery a few times per month and everyone loves the dogs who are extremely safe, caring, empathetic and friendly. However I would absolutely not claim burglars, crooks, scumbags, and those committing crimes against us are safe from harm. These dogs are extremely intelligent and discern what is happening immediately. They are fantastic protectors of livestock, children, adults & property.
These dogs are very well behaved and know exactly when we are speaking to them, they obey and are quite loyal. If you have the land and a personality to be firm with large dogs I would absolutely recommend the breed. However with that being said these dogs are NOT for everyone, especially those without multi acre property, preferably with mountainous terrain, and 4 seasons. They absolutely love the snow and cold weather but in summer need to be indoors out of all day direct sunlight in places where temps and humidity exceed 90*F
I’ve read a lot about these dogs. Some people write about how difficult they are to own and manage. Some people write about how loving and protective they are. Some people write that they’re vicious monsters. And some people write that not 1 person in 1000 can handle them. I’ve also learned that one of the reasons the Black Russian Terrier was developed was to replace these dogs as guard dogs because the Ovcharka had such a hard temperament that it would frequently turn on its handlers.
I don’t know how much is true, but one of the things I’ve learned from owning a BRT is that you have to be very firm with these powerful working dogs. And there’s no denying how impressive, majestic, and imposing they are. I’d love to have one (or two, or three), but I also have to be honest with myself and admit that right now, I probably couldn’t handle it.
One other thing: that video from National Geographic. I’ve read several Caucasian Ovcharka breeders going on about how irresponsible that video is, and how it paints a horrible and inaccurate picture of these dogs. Frankly, I can understand that. The way that guy gets dragged all over the place on his ass, and can’t keep the dog from chasing trucks? So obvious that he can’t control it! What kind of breeder would sell such a dog to an owner like that? Why would they allow such a video to be made? It doesn’t look good on anyone. Not the breeder, not the owner, and certainly not the dog (who, really, is innocent in all this — it’s not his fault that the irresponsible people in his life made stupid decisions). But if something goes wrong, who’s going to suffer the most? The dog, of course.
Thank you for your interesting comment. We’ve posted it on our Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/RusDog.

I totally agree with Sol’s comments.I answer to the question as to why a breeder would sell a dog to a guy like that, most breeders are responsible, but there are some breeders who would sell a dog to a Chinese meat market as long as the price was right and the money paid. Most are in it not only for the profit, but more so for the betterment of the breed. It’s the difference between a reputable breeder and a puppy mill mind set. My Dogo bitch and Kangal sire had one litter of crossbreed puppies. There were 10 but only 7 survived. Of the seven, I kept two. The other 5 went to people I personally knew who take really wonderful care of them. One had a hip problem and the friend who had him spent over $3,000.00 to have it fixed. I’m sure the needle would have been very much more inexpensive. The other people who have the rest of the pups take as good care of them. We ALL did the very best we could to see all the pups have as good care as possible To me that’s responsible dog ownership.. By the way, Nappy the runt was 1 1/2 lbs at birth is still the “runt” at 108 lbs! LOL
Thanks for reading this.I hope it wasn’t too boring.
interesting mix. I just purchased a Presa X CS about a month ago. He is 16 weeks old now and 51 pounds. e loves my grandkids and I socialize him around other dogs, kids and people. even though we expose him to different situations he has an aversion to strangers. I have owned many large protective breeds, but I can see that he is going to be different. We start puppy classes this week
