The Devil Dogs in Russian Prisons

Last night, I stumbled upon a documentary titled "INSIDE: RUSSIA'S TOUGHEST PRISONS." One would be wise to keep oneself out of one of Russia's toughest prisons! What really caught my attention while watching this documentary was the breed of dog used in those prisons to keep prisoners in line. The documentary gave me my first look at Caucasian Mountain Dogs, also known as Caucasian Ovcharka Devil Dogs. The Caucasian Mountain Dogs in the toughest of Russian prisons begin their training as puppies. Of course, part of the training of Caucasian Mountain Dogs used in Russian prisons includes how to attack a prisoner on command. The Caucasian Mountain Dog is not inherently dangerous, but a dog that can weigh up to 200 pounds is a dog that often does not know its own strength, therefore, expert training of a Caucasian Mountain Dog is a must. As a pet, a Caucasian Mountain Dog would be way too much dog to handle for most. If expertly trained from puppy hood, a Caucasian Mountain Dog makes one heck of a guard dog.
two high drive caucasian ovcharka's, please contact me for future planned litters. These dogs will not back down under any threat or pressure. The worlds sup...

Beautiful dogs but like some of the other breeds I've read about these types of dogs need a firm hand from the beginning. I found this on the exact specs of these beauties and they state that these pups are not for people who aren't familiar with dogs.

Yes, only a dedicated owner who is well-versed in training can handle a dog like this. The puppies are adorable, but huge.

Not all trainers have what it takes to train the larger working dogs @Corbin5 so many of them are very strong willed so that they need someone with a heavy hand or they will be dominated by them.

@rebelann They are usually used as guardians and deterrents. They are alert, dominant, and powerful dogs. Definitely not good around children since they are herding dogs and herd children. They have a purpose, but not as a family pet. Way too much fur for warmer climates too.

@YrNemo True, we have a Chow Chow/Shepherd mix and she is furry, but not big. However, she has a doggy door that allows her to go in and out of an air conditioned house to the fenced backyard 24/7. She can stay nice and cool all summer long. I cannot imagine any furry dog being forced to endure high heat.

That is a beautiful dog and just looking at it you wouldn't consider it all that mean. But like they say you have to train this dog from a puppy because it can be a dangerous animal. Shame.

Yes, they are only mean due to training them to be attack dogs. The puppies are gigantic.

@Corbin5 I'd love to walk around with a dog that almost looks like a lion. I think if another person owned one of these dogs and trained it to be loving and kind it would make an excellent pet for your home. I'm sure nobody would dare come into your yard.

@poehere That is true. We rescued Bo, a German Shepherd/Border Collie mix, and he was 110 pounds, but would not hurt a soul. I always felt safe as could be with Bo around. Just his size was enough for people to beware. Strangers did not know how sweet he was.

I think it merely scares the prisoners. They are good dogs when trained to mind their manners. The puppies are huge.

Yes, 2 to 3 people a day would fill that dog's tummy. I think you would be the right owner for a dog like this. You would have to hunt a lot of people to feed it, but a dog owners gotta do what a dog owners gotta do.

A well-trained one can be a great dog, but one trained to attack is going to be one to stay away from.

I want one @Corbin5 . I hope they're good to the dogs when they train them. Now my Akita that was only 150 pounds was voice and hand command trained (by me). Now depending; he would have either licked your face off or ripped your head off. It would depend on which command I gave him.

The Caucasian Mountain Dogs are the same way. They are calm dogs, but they can be a bit of a danger because they do not know their own strength. They like to herd children too, so that is a problem for families with kids. Who could resist that puppy???

It is one big dog. They are calm dogs and do require extensive training. The do love to herd, so little kids are usually the herded ones. Not a good dog for anyone living in a hot climate, with children, or lack of room to roam.

@Corbin5 Room to roam? Maybe 500 acres at least. Herding dog that size? My little Sally is a herder and not the greatest to have around zippy kids. But a dog that size? Look out.

Well, the dogs weigh-in at 200 pounds as adults, so fur and 200 pounds make for one huge dog. If I had a lot of land in a cold climate, I would love a dog like the one in the photo.
