This breed is best suited for an experienced dog owner who can bring out its best traits. This is not a dog for apartment life or couch potatoes. The Caucasian Mountain Dog is energetic, and needs rigorous exercise every day.
They are very protective dogs, and often rush at and knock over intruders or perceived threats. This breed has the potential to be a dangerous dog, so you need to be a highly conscientious dog owner. Keep your Caucasian Mountain Dog in a fenced garden or yard, and never let them run loose. The fence should be sturdy and high enough that your dog cannot jump over it. It is debated whether this breed is suitable for families with children: on the one hand, they are highly affectionate and gentle to family members (even to other family pets), but their size means they can be rough during play. This dog should not be left unsupervised with children, as it may perceive rough play as a threat to its family members.
If you are willing to put in the time and effort need to keep this breed, you may find owning a Caucasian Mountain Dog very rewarding. These dogs are very affectionate towards their family, and make excellent guard dogs.
