The History of the Caucasian Ovcharka

The Caucasian Ovcharka is considered to be a "natural" breed, indigenous to the region for which it was named.
The first aboriginal dogs were of very good quality and sound conformation,
however, their outstanding ability as a territorial guard dog placed them in great demand for guarding factories
and warehouses. Some of their protection against the wolves and the climate,
the breed developed on its own:
their coats are thick and heavy, especially about the neck;
both males and females can develop a full mane, which adds to their majestic appearance.
Their characteristic odor served as a warning to predators of their presence and
the oiliness of their coat likely offered both heat retention and water-repellent properties.
