The AKC Gazette Breed Columns

The breed columns are a time-honored feature of the AKC Gazette.


Each columnist is appointed by a breed's national parent club, which preserves the

breed's standard and helps to educate breeders, judges, and the public about the

breed's history, function, and possible health issues. ... Columnists are asked to

write about topics of interest to the fancy in general as well as those specific

interest to judges and devotees of the breed. The breed columns rotate by group    

so that each breed's column can appear four times a year.


Hope you find these articles useful source of information about the Icelandic Sheepdog.
