the dog in the pics is definitely being trained for a security/defense type thing. note that the woman holding him doesn't look in the least worried about what's going on. there's a whole school of this stuff called "schutzhund", which is A LOT of training for the dog involved. afterwards, a lot of people choose to compete in this sport with their dogs.

according to the wiki, the caucasian ovcharka is a herding dog from parts of russia, and shouldn't be kept by inexperienced dog owners.

but come on, this one's a TOTAL cutie!

Just a note - this is one of those threads where it pays to read from beginning to end before commenting.

Not once did I take it as the truth Mylegsbig! I saw that baby on your chest so it never even entered my mind!!!!! I just winced because I was attacked by a chow - it went for my throat but I threw my arm up - I have an extremely high respect for animals I do not know.

kadesma - you made me spit my wine when I read what you said about it being a cross between a bear and whatever couldn't get out of its way. lmao

Any breed of dog can be taught to be a good obedient dog unless it's mentally ill or abused beyond repair but you must be the strong one(alpha) if you cant do that you may well end up with an out of control animal.My dogs know who is boss in this house and it's me.DH just doesn't understand them like meAnd it does not take a heavy hand but tone of voice and also alot of bonding and consistency.
I also really believe that the vibe in the house is the vibe in your pets if there is alot of screaming and fighting in a household it totally affects the pets.Our house is about peace and kindness and the dogs pick that up.
And yet the dogs know they better be good no mean stuff.
