Item Description...
From the remote mountainous regions of the Caucasus in southeastern Europe comes the Caucasian Mountain Dog, an ovcharka breed whose origins trace back 2,000 years. Employed by Russian shepherds to protect the flocks from predators, the Caucasian Mountain Dog is a discerning guardian, wary of strangers, that is at once fearless and dutiful. Due to his impressive size and abundant coat, the Caucasian Mountain Dog has the bearing of a bear: his bluntly cropped ears, wide muzzle and prominent cheekbones contribute to the illusion. While he is as fearless and protective as a bear, at home he is more of a teddy bear, ever gentle and loving with his family. Written by long-time breeder Stacey Layne Grether Kubyn, this Special Rare-Breed Edition is the first volume ever dedicated exclusively to this remarkable canine. The author shares her insight into the breed's origins and history in the countries of the former USSR and its spread to the US, where the author organized the breed's first parent club. This book also offers an honest and authentic view of the Caucasian Mountain Dog's characteristics and temperament, including sound advice about ownership of this demanding, powerful dog. The author also discusses the breed standard and guides new owners toward the selection of a puppy and the required care and training. Comprehensive in scope, this new volume discusses house-training, home safety, everyday care and feeding as well as prevention of potential behavior problems. A special chapter on preventive healthcare, written by Dr. Lowell Ackerman, discusses selecting a veterinarian, inoculations, infectious diseases, parasites and other vital topics every owner needs to know.

Caucasian Mountain Dog  Sep 29, 2008
Exellent . Well written and informative . This author has obviously spent years working with this breed of dog . Her research is accurate and interesting as well . A must read for anyone considering this breed....
Good description  Nov 23, 2007
I have 3 caucasian mountain dogs at home and the book give a perfect description of the breed. Every one who want to get one should read the book first. I miss some more pictures of dogs.
Have a Caucasian, this book is helpfull  Dec 11, 2006
Although some history facts in Stacey's book may not be current, factual and real life training experience with the breed is correct and helpfull. Comprehensive owners guide does not suggest history at all. Training these guys is not like putting a designer collar on fluffy and going down by the park. When trained they can be a great worker and offer protection to your family. Without any proper training you will be in trouble. Buy this book befor you buy this breed. (its the only one)
respect history!  Jul 11, 2006
avcharka, caucasian mountain dog, from Russia. everything said in this book is false, "caucasian mountain dog" as you call it is ancient dog, who is purly GEORGIAN!!! georgian warriors used it in war, andit also was very effective shepard (and is nowdayes too!) Russians calim this dog is theirs, it is sin and becouse NIKITA XRUSHCHOV, brought 10 000 Georgian shepards from georgia in 20 th century, this fact uis nothing but hte cultural disresect!!! This dog is GEORGIAN, not even caucasian, only georgian (it is historicaly prooved) ancient author of ancient sictionary, Sulxan Saba Orbeliani, in his dictionary calles this dog, Georgian shepard, also know as NAGAZI (and not avcharka, russian word). there are two tipes of georgian shepards, short and long hared, they are very diffrent in ppearance but same in character. Georgian nagazi need special treetment and untill somebody (who is not aware of history) better check, and not just scip through diffrent sites, which can freely clame that fow example pizza is russian (just fot the example) I recommend author of this book to visit Georgia and see this dogs there, than read ancient historic notes, which are kept in useom, and after this im shure author will laught about her work done on this book! I'm from Italy myself, but i have been many times to Georgia and i know that dog very well! i hope you will respect history!
So-So  Mar 19, 2006
Much of the book was good and generic dog information (such as grooming, training and health care). This is a great breed of dog with a long long history. It would have been nice to see more info about this particular breed...stories, legends, habits, etc....

It was a quick and well put together book with what content was (again about this specific breed) there.
