Here is an excerpt from a letter I received.
Last weekend a couple of my aunts came to visit. Una had not met any of these people yet. We introduced her slowly during their visit. I let Una outside to relax while we visited. During this time my aunts new husband was offered to hold my daughter. I left to the kitchen and let Una in (it started to get a bit warm outside). Una entered the house and went down the hall. At this time my aunts husband stepped out of the room holding the baby. Una did NOT like this and rushed him barking until she saw my wife also exit the room. She immediately noticed my wife was fine with this and settled down. It was a learning experience for us but we were also proud of her lol!
Una was 4 months old
Recently we had our dishwasher replaced. Our daughter stayed on the other side of the baby gate with Una and my wife while the gentlemen worked on the installation. Una stayed at the gate between my wife and daughter and the guy the entire time. My wife said she never once stopped watching him. If he approached to tell my wife something Una would growl and apparently every time he reached into his bag for a tool Una would growl.
On one occasion around 2am Una let out a howl and what I felt was a very aggressive set of barks. I thought she had to use the bathroom bad so rushed out to the kitchen to let her out, she seemed agitated and rush out the door to the fence and began barking and snapping, that’s when I noticed our carport motion sensor light was on, I looked around the corner and saw a man there. He was apologetic and was actually looking for our neighbor (who we know). I directed him there without issue. I was very pleased with Una for that.
Taylor, North Carolina
Una was just six months old this time.

Many of our Caucasian friends are.
Here are some of their true protection stories.
"My family and I have wanted a Caucasian Ovcharka for some time. After several months of searching and talking to breeders we thought that Elena was the best choice. And now that our puppy is five months old we know we made the perfect decision. He's a wonderful addition to our family. We have 2 little boys a 9 year old and a 7 year old and I can honestly say that the puppy Elena picked for us is absolutely the perfect choice. He's very protective of the children and anything else on the property.
A family friend who has known both of the boys since they were born came to fill our propane. Although Barnabus was only 12-13 weeks old at the time, he was very friendly with Ray, our friend the entire time he was here. That was until he grabbed my older son by the head and said "how have you been Gage?" As soon as Barnabus saw our friend touch my son he growled at him and bit him in the leg on the calf. And I mean he grabbed a mouth full of leg. He really clamped down. Ray told me he bit really hard.
When we first brought him home we would take him to baseball practice just to be around the kids. But since he's now almost 6 months that's not possible anymore. He's becoming way more protective than we could have expected. If another animal even gets close to one of the boys he goes into protection mode. He's wonderful around any child but adults and other dogs he tries to stay really aware and away from. I'm very happy with him. I have no doubts that at full maturity he will do his job and make sure that my family is protected.
He's part of our family. He was house broke in a week or two. He sleeps in the bedroom with us. Every night before bed he gets up walks thru the house checks all the rooms, looks in our boys rooms and them comes and lays down.
I know there are a lot of other breeders out there that promise to give you a dog that will be big and aggressive and protect. Elena does a temperament test on her puppies and matches them with the family. I couldn't have asked for a better puppy. Elena really knows what she's doing with the way she runs her breeding program and also with the way she picks the families that she sends her puppies to. I'm very pleased and would recommend her to anyone that's looking to buy a Caucasian Ovcharka."
I just wanted to update you on Chanloof. He’s one amazing dog. I’ve been putting a ton of time into training and he actively listens. He’s always watching out for our family and tonight, when out for a walk, I was attacked by a woman and her bf and Chanloof stood his ground and got in-between her and was an amazing barrier. She tried to push me and he blocked her with his body. And once help arrive he calmed down immediately. He’s a clear thinker. I’m about ready to request more !
Thank you for a lovely dog!
Here are some pics
And an excerpt from a more recent letter
I just wanted to say hello and give you a photo update on Chanloof the Floof. He's doing very well, at around 145 pounds and I think that's about the weight he's staying. He goes everywhere with me! He's been extremely helpful in keeping me safe as I drop off computer equipment to new hires all over the Seattle area. I'm not sure if you've seen the news, but we've had issues with protests getting scary. Well, with the dog and 1000's of dollars worth of equipment in the car, no one comes close to us. I have been an essential worker during the pandemic lockdown and most times I am alone in an office building and he's been with me. One day he even alerted me to a person hanging out in a dark shadow. Let's just say the person now knows not to hang out in dark areas where they're not supposed to be.
Chanloof also barks a lot! I'm sure you know this, but his barking has been beyond useful for keeping overnight campers off our street. He's worth his weight in gold and I love him dearly. He's apart of the family!
Underdog is here!
Your right time does fly. Gunner is absolutely a beautiful specimen of a Caucasian, and true to the breed he’s the most protective dog I’ve ever know in my life. About a month ago we had a very bad situation. My daughter and granddaughter were attacked by my neighbors pit bulls. When this happened Gunner was out in the back yard on his runner. I got the girls in the house, and went out to get gunner in the house. As soon as I got to him both of the pit bulls came around the corner and came right after me. I backed up as the dog charged me Gunner charged hitting the dog in its side and flipping him over. Before that dog could get its feet under him Gunner had him by the throat and did not let him up. I had to pull gunner off of the other dog and Gunner had ripped his throat wide open. I got gunner in the house I basically had to carry him cause he wanted that dog. I actually ended up shooting and killing both of the pit bulls in my drive way. I had no idea just how brutal gunner could be in protecting me. It took everything I had to get him off that other dog, and he didn’t get a scratch. He is so wonderful and loving with everyone in the house from my 3 yo grand daughter to the racoon who is his best buddy. The police actually were involved in the whole dog thing and it will be on the news later this week. Ill send you the link. Gunner eats like a champ Chicken, beef, fruits ( loves apples) and veggies. He loves ice cubes as a treat. We did shave him down a couple of weeks after he got here due to the temps here. See the attached picture, and let me know what ya think
Gunner was about 5 months old at the time of this incident
There's no need to fear
