First of all, it is worth noting that a dog is taught to care for a Caucasian shepherd from an early age so that it does not show aggression on your attempts to give it a decent appearance.
The coat of the Caucasian Shepherd Dog has a very thick undercoat and is dense, so this dog sheds heavily. Caring for the hair of a Caucasian shepherd involves combing (at least twice a week), and during moulting you need to comb the dog every day. To care for the hair of the Caucasian Shepherd Dog, you will need a brush, slicker and a metal comb.
They bathe a Caucasian shepherd about twice a year, or as they become dirty.
Inspect your dog’s teeth, claws, eyes and ears regularly. If you notice discharge from your ears or eyes, consult your veterinarian as soon as possible. Claws are trimmed as needed with a special nail clipper.
After walking, inspect the skin of the dog. If you notice splinters, wounds, or cuts, treat them to prevent infection.
The Caucasian Shepherd Dog is an unpretentious dog that adapts perfectly even to the harsh climate and can live on the street even in winter, of course, in a specially equipped aviary. You can’t keep a Caucasian shepherd on the chain - in this case the owner risks raising an uncontrollable and vicious dog, dangerous primarily for his own family.
An important part of proper care of the Caucasian Shepherd Dog is full-fledged walking. Even if the dog lives in a country house, you need to walk with it. The duration of the walk is at least two hours a day. Pay attention to both physical exercise and intellectual exercise.
