Central Asian Shepherd Dog (Alabai)

Alabayev rightly called the most fearless and courageous dogs in the world. Such qualities as courage and strength have been entrenched in the breed for centuries, and you can be sure that in the event of a threat, the Alabai coldly and with striking accuracy will rush to the attack.
Appearance
The Central Asian Shepherd Dog (also known as Alabai) is one of the largest dog breeds in the world. The standard of the Central Asian Shepherd Dog combines several territorial varieties, and therefore is not so unambiguous. Depending on the place of origin, the Central Asian Shepherd Dogs have their own characteristics that make up the differences within the breed.
There are the following types of Alabai:
Turkmen Asians. They are very large and at the same time harmonious, proportionally folded dogs, famous for their quick response and insensitivity to pain.
Tajik Asians. According to the constitution are similar to St. Bernards. These are heavy dogs with strong bones and longer hair.
Uzbek Asians. Have an easy constitution. They are smaller than their fellows and more mobile. There is a slight resemblance to borzoi dogs.
Kazakh Asians. Strong and majestic – typical representatives of the breed, the most famous in the whole world Alabai.
The height at the withers of all varieties is not less than 70 cm (males) and 65 (bitches). Maximum growth rates are welcome, but always with proportions.
The body of the Central Asian Shepherd Dog is of a moderately stretched format, with smooth contours. The limbs are straight and parallel, with developed muscles. Despite their large physique, alabai look harmonious and even elegant, they can not be called bumpkins.
The neck of a dog is strong, strong, with a suspension. The head is voluminous, rectangular in shape, with a smooth transition from the forehead to the muzzle and pronounced brow ridges. The muzzle is rectangular, almost not narrowing to the nose, the jaws are large and strong.

Character
Alabayev rightly called the most fearless and courageous dogs in the world. Such qualities as courage and strength have been entrenched in the breed for centuries, and you can be sure that in the event of a threat, the Alabai coldly and with striking accuracy will rush to the attack.
Thanks to the quick reaction, sharp mind and power, the Central Asian Shepherd Dogs have proven to be the best guards and watchmen. However, it is recommended to start them only for experienced dog breeders. Alabai needs persistent and patient training. And if a puppy or teenager easily assimilates information and is perfectly amenable to education and training, then it is almost impossible to correct the behavior of an adult alabay.
Interestingly, other dogs are natural enemies for alabay in the first place. For centuries, the ancestors of the Central Asian Shepherd Dogs protected herds from predators, in particular, from wolves, which was fixed in their gene pool. Be sure, not one Alabai will miss a foreign dog on his territory. The future owner of the Central Asian Shepherd should take into account this quality of character, because for stray dogs, alabai is indeed a serious danger.
The Central Asian Shepherd Dogs are not as categorically disposed towards people. As a rule, with strangers, alabai are kept completely neutral, if, of course, they do not violate borders. Natural distrust of “strangers” is also a hallmark of the breed. You need to put a lot of effort to the majestic dog began to trust you.
But in the family circle, a mistrustful and strict alabai turns into a huge teddy bear, a loyal friend and a responsible nanny. These large dogs will do everything to cheer up the owner, will gladly make up the company in any occupation and will play with enthusiasm with the children (strictly following their safety). Imagine, but the same amount of warmth and friendliness applies to other pets. They will selflessly protect and protect their “native” dogs, cats and even chickens from each other.
Health
The breed was formed under natural conditions, and its best qualities have been cultivated over the centuries. Therefore, in general, alabai have good health and impressive endurance. However, as with all large breeds of dogs, the alabayevs have a tendency to diseases of the joints and the cardiovascular system. Prevention is a balanced diet and active walks.
The average life expectancy of alaby is 12 years.
Care
The Central Asian Shepherd Dog is quite unpretentious and feels great when kept in a spacious aviary. Flat conditions for this large breed are contraindicated.
