The Central Asian Shepherd Dog (Alabai) is one of the most formidable guard dogs. Having a rich history, the Alabai were able to become real human helpers. But it is worth knowing that, being a formidable weapon, these dogs can, in inept hands, turn against their owners. What are the reviews of owners who have Alabay?

1. Maria, Voronezh: “Our defender from thieves”
After changing the apartment to your house, immediately took the opportunity to realize our long-standing dream - to have a large dog. Before that, due to cramped living conditions, we only kept a toy terrier. Especially we did not hurry, set up a special aviary, read information about large dogs. We did not need a dog, the main advantage of which would be barking at passersby. We chose this guard.
Most of the neighbors had yard dogs or sheep breeds shepherd dogs, but judging by the complaints of people, they could not even prevent the theft of chickens. Looking at this, we chose the Central Asian Shepherd Dog - Ala dog.
The husband seriously approached his upbringing, being a military retiree, did not spare his pet. The method of training applied its own.
It was important for us that the dog was not “brehat” in vain, but aggressively towards penetrated aliens into our territory. Our dog quickly mastered the team "Own!", Although having calmed down, it does not cease to attentively and waryly follow the guests. Naturally, people are somewhat annoying, but the dog never showed aggression.
Over time, we realized that the Alabai was the best guard, and besides, because of his appearance, no one even tries to get into our compound. Although there were attempts to poison our pet (they found pieces of meat and sausages that fell through the fence from the outside). Therefore, be sure to teach the dog not to pick up anything from the ground.
2. Alina, Krasnodar Territory: “Alabai is not a dog for amateurs”
Listening for a long time praise from a colleague in the address of her dog, they say, and clever, and protector, etc., I could not stand it and acquired a puppy from her alabayki. I took it with a certain intent - to protect my apartment from thieves' raids, especially since there are no men in our family, and only women - me, mother, daughter.
I acquired my Almira at the very beginning of autumn, thinking that by spring it would turn into a smart security guard from us. Living in a spacious apartment with my mother and daughter, I quietly took up work, leaving the dog to be raised by their household.
Having no relevant experience, we raised a monster! With high intelligence, our girl quickly learned a lot of teams. But! She performed them exclusively in the mood. The rest of the time she was engaged only in sabotage.
At the next trickle (eating my shoes) and trying to stop them, Almira (at 6 months this is already a large animal) bit me by the hand. The first thought: “Give it up!” Flashed, but who needs an evil grown-up dog who does not know how to behave? And I did not even consider other inhumane options.
There was only one way out - to go to the courses of dressage. Fortunately, the specialist assured that it is not too late to correct the behavior of our “evil”. I had to attend individual classes, as the dog was extremely categorical towards other dogs, trying to tear each one of them.
The business has been partially settled, and Almira took it for the hostess. Money and time is gone a lot. But the rest of the family she does not put in anything. Can not let out of the apartment, blocking the way. Therefore, often lives on the balcony.
I can say that alabai is not a dog for fragile women, it is not suitable for an apartment and in general, without a certain character and knowledge, it is not worth starting it up.
3. Nina, Novosibirsk: “Our friend is Alabai.”
Reading about the Alabay, a picture appears in terrible tones with a monster in the foreground. I do not know how, but we got an absolutely opposite representative of this breed, and maybe we were so influenced by it. Our Alabai is not just a family member, but a true friend.
Living in an apartment and leading an too active lifestyle, we decided that we needed a big dog. Considering, as a candidate, the St. Bernard, the idea of shallows - he is too calm. As a result of stormy searches and fabrications, they chose Central Asian.
Our alabaychik is not a scary beast, which can frighten children and old women. The thunder is an absolutely socialized creature - it drives a car with us, with a muzzle and on the bus. He perfectly communicates with other dogs on the walking, but to unfamiliar dogs, especially males, may show aggression. Fortunately, local dog lovers have a clear distribution of who, when walking. Therefore, we get on the run only with friendly dogs.
Of course, the husband made efforts to educate the Thunder. No wonder he served on the border and has experience in dealing with service dogs. We are absolutely not afraid for our children, our dog will never touch them, and will not give anyone any offense.
How many people, so many opinions, but all the owners agree on one thing - the Alabayam needs the firm hand of a man who knows the peculiarities of the character of these dogs. Otherwise, you can ask for help from professionals or get a masterful big dog, dangerous not only for others, but also for the owner.
