We follow the guidelines recommended by the Icelandic Sheepdog International Cooperation's (ISIC) Breeding Committee. These standards were developed from research by ISIC member countries in cooperation with the scientific community to ensure the continued health of the breed.
Our dogs are health tested and meet the breeding requirement set by the ISAA.
We participate in CHIC program
(Canine Health Information Center Program)
Born September 24th 2008 in Dayton Ohio, an offspring of Spurðann and Snotra. She is a daddy’s girl but loves to play with all the dogs, and is always a happy little girl.
The Icelandic Sheepdog is Iceland's only native dog. It is part of Iceland's national heritage and a treasure which should be safeguarded and bred to the FCI/AKC standard keeping it true to Iceland no matter what country it resides in.
The Icelandic Sheepdogs are not for everyone, they need room for play and are not happy to be left alone for long periods of time. They are happiest when they can be with their family while still having the opportunity be out running, playing and working.
"If you don't choose the breeding material very carefully, you are not breeding, you are only producing dogs."
"It has always been my opinion that it is destructive for an Icelandic Sheepdog to live its life as a kennel dog.
A living piece of art ought to live together freely with its human flock."
-Guðrún R. Guðjohnsen-
"One should not consider what people like when considering breeding.
One should only consider what is in the standard."
-Hans Ake Sperne-
To the people of Iceland I would say that you have in your ancient little breed of dog a real treasure
- part of your history. You should prize and value the Iceland Dog, for he is unique and to be cherished.
