The list is coming to an end and another Cold War dog is on top, do the RUSSIANS know something we don’t? At 1-A the CAUCASIAN OVCHARKA is one of the oldest GUARD DOG breeds listed. The ALABAI and CENTRAL ASIAN OVCHARKA are breeds similar to the OVCHARKA, and can be considered under the same ranking.

A breed native of the Caucasus mountains, it is one of the oldest molosser breeds sharing its heritage with many of the Soviet funded Red Star Kennel, a military based K9 facility. The breed was utilized in many of the new breed creations the famed kennel produced for military use during the Cold War.

Throughout my rankings I’ve touched on how important DEFENSIVE drives are for the construction of a great guard dog. The OVCHARKA is the epitome of what we call a DEFENSIVE monster. I read somewhere describing the breed, to get chased and bit by this breed is like getting hit by a 357 magnum. I don’t know what it feels like to be shot by a gun but I do know what it feels like being charged and bitten by this breed, and I’ll say you’ll probably not be alive to tell the story of how you got away.

The OVCHARKA is a true working dog thats comfortable as a family dog. Due to its untrusting nature, he should not be trusted around strangers. An extra large dog with some weighing as much as 200lbs with thick coats, the breed does well in colder climates but can acclimate to warmer weather. A experienced and firm handler should own this dog and training at an early age is highly advisable since the breed is very dominant. Although the breed is a loyal family member when raised socially, I wouldn’t advice young children without supervision.

Some defaults: as with all large breed, hips, shoulder and elbows are of concern. A relatively modest life span is to be expected (9 -11yrs) especially for a dog of this size.
