Moscow Watchdogs are large-size, massively structured, muscular dogs. They are perseverant, not very demanding as to their living conditions and are able to accommodate well to changes in the climate and other conditions. Their mood is well-balanced, and their nervous system is stable.

A guarding dog, Moscow Watchdogs are strong and easy to train. Protection of the property and the people is in their blood. They do not mind living in flats. The Moscow Watchdog was bred on the Red Star military base outside Moscow. The breed descends from the long-hair St. Bernard and the Caucasian Ovcharka, and later the Russian Spotted Hound was also used for the cross-breeding. Russian military canine experts expended a lot of efforts to select the breeds with the desired properties.

They are wary of strangers, which makes them excellent and alert guards. They are ideal for outdoor guarding thanks to their hefty frame and thick hair that protects them even in the coldest weather. The ideal height of the dogs is 77-78 cm to the withers, and the bitches’ ideal height is 71-73 cm. The minimum height of the dogs is 68 cm, and of bitches 66 cm. Gender differences are pronounced.

It is commonly known that any army that cares about its reputation has highly-trained, deployable canine units. Holding itself and its power in high esteem, the former Soviet Union’s army did not settle with the training of dogs: they wanted to create their own breed that tolerates the harsh climate and unfavourable circumstances. The military spared no money and efforts in their endeavour to develop a new breed. In the beginning, they had to face a series of failures because they did not have a high-quality breeding stock.
If you are considering a Moscow Watchdog puppy, or any breed, it is very important to be selective in choosing a responsible and reputable breeder. Ensure that the prospective puppy's parents have all health clearances. Breeding of any dog should not be done until after they have been proven to be free of evidence of significant hereditary diseases
