Our goal at Lokasteinn Icelandics is to breed quality puppies with sound structure and temperament. All of the dogs in our breeding program have successfully completed the required testing as well as additional voluntary tests. Sires are chosen to complement the physical structure, temperament and genetics of our females.
Our dogs are part of our family first and foremost. We will only sell puppies to families who will bring them into their homes as family members.
We will not breed our females until they are over 2 years old to allow them the necessary time to become fully mature physically and emotionally. They will be allowed at least one season between breedings.
Our kennel breeds according to the AKC, ISAA and ISIC breed standards. We are also volunteer participants in the Canine Health Information Center, also known as CHIC, which is a centralized canine health database jointly sponsored by the AKC/Canine Health Foundation (AKC/CHF) and the Orthopedic Foundation for Animals (OFA). CHIC is an online repository for breed specific health data that is available for anyone to review .
We are lifetime members of the Icelandic Sheepdog Association of America, members of the Atlantshaf (Atlantic) Icelandic Sheepdog Chapter of the ISAA, active members of the Williamsport Dog Training Club, Central Pennylvania Dog Training Club, and the Bald Eagle Kennel Club. Our dogs are registered in the American Kennel Club (AKC), Canadian Kennel Club (CKC) and United Kennel Club (UKC).
