We are responsible for introducing the very first Central Asian Ovcharka to Australia in 1995. Legendary Khottab (imp Kazakhstan) arrived to Sydney in May 1995 as part of our family after extensive and difficult quarantine period in Finland. In a couple of years we had to travel back to bring a suitable partner for Khottab. Lusha the first CAO female to enter Australia was the daughter of another legend - Turkmen-born Karagez. Together they produced two litters to make foundation for the future authentic and robust population. In the next two decades we followed up with several other high genetic value imports from the country of origin, searching and selecting carefully for specific type with the aim of preserving the original old working bloodlines and authentic traits we have always admired in this breed. Today, after several generations our dogs are characterised by the same physical and mental soundness, longevity, hardiness, independent problem solving skill, strong guardian instinct and unique gentle nurturing ability of a natural livestock guardian. They make exceptional companions for specific types of people, reliable livestock/farm guardians for intelligent farmers and look most impressive at show ring with experienced handlers who are able and willing to understand and respect their nature.
