If you know someone who could be a perfect owner for Buster, get in touch. He is insured and comes without papers.
Who are they suitable for?
The breed is suitable for dog owners with good dog experience from before, who live in a suitable place, and who are willing to socialize the puppy thoroughly.
Caucasian Ovtcharka's are suitable for those who need a guard dog or a guard dog. He needs a consistent, firm and fair owner.
Are there special requirements for the environment?
Yes. A Caucasian Ovtcharka is not suitable as a city dog, or in an apartment. One should have access to safe areas where he can be exercised.
He is very fond of children, and of its family and pack, but it is not suitable for families living in densely populated areas. We want someone who has adult children and not infants for Buster.
They like to make their owner happy and learning to sit, tire, stand etc. goes well. The breed is independent, and you can see that when, for example, it is summoned - it often has to finish its errand first, and then it comes.
If you get a Caucasian Ovtcharka puppy in the house, you should have thought carefully in advance about what you expect it to tolerate from visitors (two-legged and possibly four-legged), and in which environment the dog will work.
It is extremely important to socialize and train in these situations from an early age.
Lack of social structure can lead to unwanted aggression towards people and animals.
With proper training, loving and consistent treatment, KO is a faithful and super loyal friend.
Caucasian Ovtcharka is one of the oldest dog breeds in the world. It originally originates from the area between the Black Sea and the Caspian Sea and the countries of Armenia, Georgia, Azerbaijan, Dagestan, Turkey and Iran. There it was used to guard and protect shepherds, their herds of sheep and cows, and the shepherds' families and homes against real dangers and threats in the form of predators and pack thieves. In 1933, the large-scale importation of Caucasian Ovtcharka into Russia began. Under the command of Stalin, the finest breeding dogs were confiscated from their homelands and breeding was concentrated in Russian State Kennels, among others the Red Star Kennel.
Thousands of the Caucasian Ovtcharka were used for border patrol on the East German side of the Berlin Wall. Until the autumn of 1989, there was a ban on the export of the breed, but when the Berlin Wall was torn down, over 7,000 adult dogs were suddenly redundant, most were euthanized, while puppies were given away or sold for cheap. In 1990, the breed became popular in Russia and the Baltic countries and the breeding included almost all bitches that could produce puppies. As of today, it seems that most breeders who were engaged in the 90s to profit from the sale of puppies have disappeared and we are left with the real enthusiasts who want to promote the breed positively in terms of breed type, temperament and health.
The first two Caucasian Ovtcharkas were imported to Norway in September 1996.
