Icelandic dog

Origin and history

The Icelandic dog is, as the chicken population, a breed that was saved before it became too mixed with other dog breeds. Therefore, the founding population is very small, counting only 23 sires and pedigree records reveal that the genetic contribution of three sires is over 80% for the whole population. Substantial inbreeding level has been confirmed for the breed.

Breeding work

A special breeding committee for the Icelandic dog handles recording of all individuals and sets breeding goals for the population. According to the chairman of the committee, there are is approx. 650 dogs currently in Iceland and that number is somewhat higher abroad. Organized breeding work is likely to have helped to decrease the inbreeding level for the breed in recent years.

Value

The Icelandic Dog breed is a well recorded breed and many breeders have great interest in its future role. Both aspects are regarded necessary when maintaining a relatively small breed.
