When a person sees a Caucasian Ovtcharka puppy, the first thing he thinks is "look at that beautiful bear". The puppy is in fact adorable, with strong character and very independent; however, this little puppy will become in a few months into a beautiful Ovtcharka who will be willing to defend his master in any moment. The Caucasian Ovtcharka is an athletic dog by nature with a centered mind. The Russian saying "a healthy spirit lives in a healthy body" describes perfectly this breed.
The Caucasian ovtcharka is a strong dog with a solid bond structure and with massive and well defined muscles. His head is big and he has a bear looking. His ears are cut to avoid that they are bitten by common depredators in the country (bears and wolves). The dog has a strong devotion to his family
The differences between genders is explicit: males are bigger and with more muscle than females; male heads ae bigger and heavier than female ones. Compared to their size, they are reasonably cheaper as they consume half vs. other breeds of the same size
