Caucasian Ovcharka


Caucasian Ovcharkas are large and in charge. They're intelligent and independent, with a bit of an aggressive streak. Although they can be loving, they are not for everyone; only a strong owner with the ability to lead will master this dog. If you can handle it, however, the Caucasian Ovcharka can be a great companion.
