The Chopaan Guardians is a website dedicated to the Central Asian Shepherd dog.
The Central Asian Shepherd dogs is a collection of different breed types that came about in the areas such as
Afghanistan, Uzbekistan, Turkmenistan, Tajikistan, Kazakhstan, and the most of the southern Russian provinces.
Known as Kochee in Afghanistan, Alabai in Turkmenistan and Central Asian Ovcharka in the Russian provinces.
This breedís history is very old and rich dating back at least 5,000 years. This breed is not man made and was
the product of the harsh environment in which they lived. These dogs were used mostly by Nomadic tribes known
as "Kochi" and settlers mostly in the outskirts for guarding. These dogs were used for livestock, family protection
and keeping strangers and predators away. This breed is an Extra large breed with minimal maintenance and not
many health issues. They come in many different colors, coats, and head types. They love their family and will
do anything to make sure they are safe. We want to Thank Jeannine De Palma and Vince De Palma for their on
going support and wonderful dogs they have provided for us.
