There are three coat types in the Caucasian Ovcharka Standard
Short Coat:The outer coat is shorter and the mane, pants and tail feathering are absent.
Intermediate coat. The outer coat is still fairly long, but the mane, pants and tail feathering are less than with the long-coated type.
Long Coat-The hair of the outer coat is very long, forming a “mane.” Extensive feathering on the hind legs gives the appearance of long, silky “pants.” The long hairs feathering the tail on all sides makes it look thick and fluffy.
The following are acceptable colors and markings: Agouti gray - dark, light, silver, reddish, or yellowish - with or without white markings; White, cream, fawn or reddish fawn, tan or reddish tan, fulvous, with or without white markings; Brindle; Piebald; or White with gray patches.
The undercoat is light colored. The head often has a distinctive dark mask.
Disqualifications: Solid black (defined as black to the skin with no shading, such as in the Newfoundland). Black and Tan (defined as black and tan like the Rottweiler). Solid chocolate (defined as any shade of solid brown without lighter undercoat or sable overlay, like a Grizzly bear).
