What kind of dog was that?

Hey everyone. I took Scout to the first week of his CGC class. There was this dog there that probably weighed 150+ lbs. Looked kinda like a Bernese Mtn dog, but had the coloring of a GSD. It was very hairy and HUGE. The guy told us what he was but I couldn't understand b/c of this thick korean accent. Any ideas?

I'm kinda disappointed with the class b/c that dog seemed aggressive and disruptive. It really made it hard for the other dogs to concentrate when the dog would growl, bark, and lunge at your dog anytime your dog got near it. There was a lab in the class that obviously got a bad vibe from this dog b/c it growled and barked the whole time. The big dog arrived late to class and the class just wasn't the same after he got there....

I guess that could be it. Looks similar in pictures. Still not sure though b/c his hair looked longer.

Ovcharka maybe? The Ovcharka (especially the Caucasian from what I've read and talked about with a friend that has one) are SUPPOSED to be aggressive. They were bred to be that way.
Hmm I wonder if he has to get it CGC certified for some reason or another. I wouldn't be taking a dog like that into any hospital or nursing home.
Hmm looked more like the ovcharka than the tibetan mastiff...

I don't know why this dog was in the class. It is strange because he really upset all the other male dogs. And the male dogs were all fine together before he arrived. Then he came (showed up late might I add again) and everyone became upset, barking, and all over the place.
Ohh wow.. I think that is it.... The dog may have been more unruly than aggressive. He barked and growled a lot at the other dogs. But he may not have hurt anyone. He may have just been showing off. He was very obedient when he wasn't distracted. He did well with his sit, stay, down, and heel. He just wasn't good when he was near the other dogs.
