The Caucasian ovtcharka (Caucasian Shepherd) and the Tibetan mastiff are the two main breeds available.

CAUCASIAN OVTCHARKA


Intelligent, fiercely loyal, and highly trainable, the well-bred Caucasian’s natural protection ability provides formidable intruder deterrence while being naturally gentle with children, thus, the well-bred Caucasian is unsurpassed today in providing serious protection for the home and family.

Our first Caucasian ovtcharka in Airwalker Kennels is the Royal Maks (MAKCNM in Russian), born in April of 2013. His first dame littered 10 puppies and all survived!


TIBETAN MASTIFF

This still primitive dog breed was developed centuries ago in Tibet. Originally used as guard dogs for livestock and property, Tibetan Mastiffs can still be found performing that role, but they also enjoy life as a family companion and show dog.

With his noble appearance, long coat, appealing colors, and beautiful tail, the Tibetan Mastiff is sure to be a conversation starter and traffic stopper as you walk him down the street. But if that’s all you’re looking for in a dog, this is not the breed for you.

Before considering the drawbacks, here’s what we love about this breed. The Tibetan Mastiff is loving, gentle, patient, and understanding. His centuries of working closely with humans have made him very sophisticated in the ways he understands people.

He’s a hard worker, protective of his family, fearless, and loyal. His large size and substance makes him a wonderful guard dog, and centuries of breeding for that specific task has perfected him as a protector.
