Hey Ashlee, congratulations on purchasing the book and trying to learn more about how to keep our dog healthy and well nourished. I have seen videos of working LGDs being fed grool or slop. Basically milk and oats or some such concoction. It is interesting to note that western dog owners and fanciers often think they know best what to feed an ancient breed they have owned for a few years while centuries of ownership and husbandry are dismissed as old fashioned and insufficient. You bought

Ok i am lost on this. I got stacey caucasian mountain dog book . and in her book it says that moderate  protien level (about 25% )ok but what i am not understanding in the book is  it says  that raw meat is not good for caucasian mountain dogs. Or raw goat meat or cow milk. also in  her book it says you can add high quality canned dog food to the dry kibble or  yogurt or home prepared fresh food.  ??? Help me please

  I changed up his food to a more healthier/ and or limited ingredient along with some soft food. It works for my dog.  That is they key. find what works for your dog and monitor to ensure stability.

cawkazen, Sure whatever works for you. My pit had a similar problem with his skin but not as extreme. The vet said allergies. I changed up his food to a more healthier/ and or limited ingredient along with some soft food. It works for my dog. I also use dermabenz shampoo once a month on him which is helpful and also add and fish oil and dasaquin into his bowl. It all works synergistically for my dog and I've had great results.

Actually, we have flow 7 puppies from eastern Europe and Italy over the years and they all made it with no problems at all. Puppies are very resilient and bounce back quickly. I suggest that a flight will not harm the pup unless the plane crashes.  :)

now that this has happened and my dog is doing better. I will never do dog food again. its all made by a bunch of greedy corporate bastards. its all made in china. its all done in the name of profit. All the healthy this and natural that are all gimmicks to increase sales. Its not healthy, its not natural. I used to work for science diet dog food about 10 years or so ago. stuff is garbage. I also recall the huge dog food poisoning epidemic years ago. What happened? they were putting melamine in the dog f

The Caucasian is one of my top 2 picks as far as dogs are concerned. They are beautiful dogs. I love their temperament. I may still end up getting one if I purchase more land. My only concerns were the hair and how well will they do in hot and humid Midwest. I know they can adapt, but I wasn't sure I would want to put them through it. Our heat is something else. It wouldn't be so bad if it was cooler in the shade, but here it is just as hot in shade as in the sun because of the humidity. When I go to the

  Normally I would have Recommended a dog like the Caucasian Ovcharka for cold weather climate as my top choice. I love this breed too. The main reason I don't have one is the long hair. They have a short hair version but it is not my choice. Then I would add the Black Russian Terrier, and Giant Schnauzer and maybe the Akita. These may all shed more than you desire.  Good that you recognized the Caucasian Ovcharka as one of the choices.  They do love the cold weathe

That may be the only way I would be able to "adopt" this breed dog but, I have compassion for a puppy being caged andf flown for many hors and, what result the flight trauma may have upon him/her.

I am not able to locate any Karst Shepherd in the USA at this time.  Would you consider importing a pup from their native land.  That may be a good choice and at least you have a better idea of what you are getting.

Both sides of my family were Slovenian although I am a second generation United States citizen. I have only very recently come upon information regarding the Karst Shepherd breed and I would very much like to see and possibly "adopt" one. Has anyone any information on breeders with the United States?  Thanks in advance.     Karl

 Agreed.   You may want to try organic dog food. Nature's domain is good, either the red or green bag. It's cheaper at Costco. Lots of dogs with hot spots and itching from allergies is from all of the chemicals and GMO's in traditional dog food.  https://www.amazon.com/Kirklans-Signature-Natures-Domain-Turkey/dp/B00SWJD5QC/ref=pd_sim_199_2?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1&refRID=BZ87VJS53TSDJKJEGMVZ&dpID=41Q5R4cXrnL&preST=_SY300_QL70_&dpSrc=detail

You mix it in their food. I can't say how much. Too much garlic can cause the dog to get sick as it is poisonous to dogs. However, it would take an extreme amount of garlic to make them sick.   There may be others on here that still use garlic for fleas. They might be able to tell you how much per pound or something like that. I use K9 Advantage.

Based upon the criteria here's my small list. Of course more dogs could be included in the list. My choice is the Perro De Presa Canario. That's my preference. But I say that everyone should make their on choices based upon their research. Always research the breed and the breeder. When choosing a presa I narrowed my search down to the Presa, Cane Corso, Boerboel, and Dogo Argentino. I decided against the Boerboel because of the size being bigger than I wanted and wasn't going to be as agile or fast as a

I replied earlier on this topic from my phone. However, for some odd reason it didn't go through/ I will reply more later with my opinions. For now my number one suggestion is the presa canario. I admit I;m partial as this is the my breed preference. I would also say the Caucasian. As these or my top two favorite dogs. But Caucasian may be too big and shed too much based upon your criteria.
