    The Azerbaijan Shepherd Dog (çoban iti)

    is a large breed of dog that is popular in Azerbaijan shepherds . It is extremely popular in Sout .Azerbaijan Sarab , which has always being the principal region of penetration of Caucasian shepherd dogs, and the official standard of this breed is fundamentally based on the dogs taken from North Azerbaijan .
    Because the dog breed was registered by the USSR, the FCI standard of this breed indicates that its origin is the USSR. However, the breed is itself native to countries of the caucasus region like , Georgia and Azerbaijan.Turky
    Mountian type
    Also known as Caucasian Mountian or Baskhan (Karachay) pariy, Azerbaijan shepherd dogs are strongly boned, muscular, and even-tempered molossers. Plain dogs have a shorter coat and appear taller as they are more lightly built. Mountain dog types(Dag iti) have a heavier coat and are more muscularly built.Azerbaijan Mountian type shepherds are large dogs; however, there is no recorded maximum height or weight. The minimum height for females is 65 centimetres (25 in), with a desirable height between 67 and 90 centimetres (26 and 28 in).[1]

    The minimum weight for females is 45 kilograms (99 lb). The minimum height for males is 70-90 centimetres (27 in), with a desirable height between 72 and 75 centimetres (28 and 30 in).[1] The minimum weight for males is 50 kilograms (110 lb).[1] The Caucasian shepherd is rather intelligent; however, they can be insolent and refuse to listen at times. They also can be fairly aggressive towards people they do not know and with incorrect handling this can be problematic. This can be overcome by proper training.
    Azerbaijan Mastiff is generally healthy and long-lived, averaging a life span of 10–12 years. Some dogs may have health issues in the form of hip dysplasia, obesity and occasional heart problems, but the majority of these dogs are healthy if taken care of correctly.

    Shepherd Dog are traditionally cropped, although some modern dogs are unaltered, as many people believe that this practice is unethical and cruel. If brought up by someone with extensive knowledge on the needs of a Caucasian Shepherd Dog, the chances of health problems should lower dramatically.
    Exercise and play time are a crucial part of the Caucasian Shepherd Dog's life to help prevent obesity. Outdoor activities such as hiking, chasing balls and retrieving flying discs can be a good outlet of releasing energy.

    About ancient origin of Azerbaijan sheep-dog, advantages of its working qualities is written very much, and in this occasion there are no disputes. Azerbaijan sheep-dog (aboriginal breed) is pride of all peoples of Transcaucasia and Caucasus, but at the same time it and trouble of these peoples. After disorder of the Soviet Union, each of these sovereign republics tries to appropriate to herself the right of the founder of this breed. What only new names are not thought up: arsak dog??? longhaired Azerbaijan wolfhound, Azerbaijan gurdbasar (wolfhound), Turkish, dog etc. If and further so will go that name of breed will be on each area and each village. And it will be by tragedy for breed.
    About a heavy situation with Caucasian sheep dog in Azerbaijan in 70 and in the beginning of 90 last centuries, was enough written in republican press. But after 1995 the situation began to be improved. Many cattle-breeding facilities having quite good (not for exhibition) dogs, with good working qualities have appeared. Also that is especially pleasant, has revived, the dyed out steppe version of shorthaired dogs - steppe type the sheep dog of Azerbaijan would seem. It is one of types of Azerbaijan sheep dog distributed on all regions. Large quantity of these dogs lived in steppe areas of Azerbaijan.
    all types of Azerbaijan sheep-dogs live in our World country.
    In high-mountainous areas, there are dogs of a so-called mountain type (Dag iti)- longhaired , in an average strip - type CO, with excellent working qualities, it is perfect feel itself as in enough cold mountain districts,, and in hot areas. For example, easily undergo colds, exceeding a minus of 30 degrees in the Nakhichevan Autonomous Republic, and heat reaching till 40-45 of degrees in low steppe areas of republic.) By the way, best Caucasian sheep-dog USSR on a nickname Topush, had a woolen cover of an intermediate type.
    dog does not cause disputes, i.e. ancestor Tibetan mastiff, further Assyrian�s dog etc.



    Azerbaijan Shepherds dog have higher working qualities. It is possible to judge it on the following examples. With ancient times till the present in the dog fights take part the overwhelming
    Till 1953, when in Azerbaijan territory in a subtropical zone lived dyed out turan tigers and leopards, Azerbaijan sheep-dog from flocks (in that time in flock the number of dogs reached till 15-20) attacked an animal. 5-6 dogs are easy scared a bear.
    The purpose of given clause to remind to pseudo-patriots, that is not necessary to assimilate to politics dividing all and everything, from grounds up to the peoples. Azerbaijan sheep-dog are given to us by the god, nature and traditions of our ancestors. Chief task of the fans of this breed, first of all not in applying for the one to whom it belongs, and in keeping it in primeval kind, to not spoil by demands of the experts of "shows - exhibitions". "Caucasian" allowing to the judge get into it mouth, everything, only not Caucasian. Caucasian sheepdog without aggression and rage to another's is only vast poodle.

    The Caucasus Mountains] are a mountain system in Eurasia between the Black Sea and the Caspian Sea in the Caucasus region. [​IMG]
