Thank you for your interest in Caucasian Ovcharka (Kavkazskaïa Ovtcharka, Caucasian Shepherd Dog, Perro de pastor del Cáucaso, Kaukasischer Ovtcharka, Chien de berger du Caucase)
and Est-Alfa kennel.
Having bred this unique breed for about 30 years, I know that after purchasing a Caucasian Ovcharka and rearing the puppy you will never be able to replace it with another breed. Your soul and heart will bond with the dog.
Caucasian Ovcharkas are not merely gifted animals ─ they are intellectuals, who actually think and impress with their actions, noble souls, and expressive looks.
An athlete by its nature, Caucasian Ovcharka is confident in its strength and has a very stable psyche. Russian adage “A healthy spirit lives in a healthy body” best describes this breed. Superior health, innate nobility, and natural intellect, harmonically intertwines in this marvelous animal.
The nature gave birth to Caucasian Ovcharka, the best of all dogs,
and has been gently protecting its remarkable creation for several millennials. Perhaps, God himself envisioned a man’s loyal friend as clever, strong, enduring, as well as incorruptible, not eclectic in its food choice and environment, unrelenting towards strangers, but loving and tender with its master and other members of the household. The saying “Only the strong one can be kind” is completely applicable to Caucasian Ovcharka.
I candidly hope that this information will help you to become a true admirer of the breed.
