The Colorado Mountain Dog Registry, the CMDR, is the organization for the original Colorado Mountain Dog, headed up by the breed founder, and having an active board which includes vets, professional breeders, people with genetics degrees, publicists, and many others who volunteer out of love for this breed. The goal of the CMDR is to provide a breed standard, maintain a pedigree database and make it accessible, educate and encourage breeders towards excellence, and to promote the breed worldwide. The goal of the CMDR board is to listen to the membership, and to function as a think tank.

This is our official website but we also publish, a beautiful online magazine with articles, photos, classifieds, breeder websites, and farm ads.

The Colorado Mountain Dog is a livestock guardian dog specifically bred for small acreage farming.   We are selecting for dogs which tend to wander and bark less, and which accept unknown humans easily and without suspicion or hostility.  The CMD is a beautiful dog, taller and leaner than some LGD breeds, with a medium body coat, soft silky hair that doesn’t mat, and long full manes and tails.  They are generally white, but other colors are acceptable, such as brindle, tan with a dark muzzle, or badger markings.  A well bred Colorado Mountain Dog is a great family companion, and will do small perimeters around you as you hike or do chores on your property.
