Lokasteinn Icelandic Sheepdogs and Puppies 
Our Kennel and Breeding Program

Lokasteinn Icelandics, breeders of purebred AKC, CKC, UKC registered Icelandic Sheepdogs, is located in north central Pennsylvania, breeding quality Icelandic Sheepdog puppies.  To tie us to Pennsylvania, the Keystone State, we choose Lokasteinn as our kennel name which translates to Keystone in Icelandic.  We are lifetime members of the Icelandic Sheepdog Association of America (ISAA), approved ISAA Breeders, breed to the AKC breed standard and follow ISIC guidelines.

When we got our first Icelandic Sheepdog, Kiska, her breeder warned us that these dogs are very addictive and that it would be impossible to have just one.  We laughed!  We had waited a long time for this little fur ball and we were certain that she would keep us busy.  Kiska was calm, gentle and had a loving temperament.  She was intelligent and learned quickly.  She was such a pleasure, we knew we wanted to help preserve this rare and beautiful breed and to introduce the breed to others.  Kiska’s breeder was right, the Icelandic Sheepdog is addictive.  Fortunately these dogs get along well with other dogs so adding the second and third dog to the household was not a problem.

We are dedicated to breeding and raising quality Icelandic Sheepdogs.  We breed for health and conformation while striving to maintain their calm, gentle, loving temperament as well as their innate intelligence and herding ability.  Our Icelandic Sheepdog puppies are available for sale in the US, Canada, and Internationally.  Our Females are not bred until they are over two years old.  Before breeding, both males and females are CERF tested annually to detect any eye diseases, PenHIP or OFA tested for hip dysplasia; and tested for Brucellosis prior to each breeding.  

Our kennel includes Nor’Star Disa Be Kiska, Lokasteinn Visa, and Blue Zafir Esja Anaegja.  All of our breeding Icelandic Sheepdogs are registered with the American Kennel Club (AKC), the Canadian Kennel Club (CKC), the United Kennel Club (UKC) and the Icelandic Sheepdog Association of America (ISAA).

Puppies begin Early Neurological Stimulation on day 3 through 21.  They are socialized with humans and other dogs.  The puppies are exposed to a variety of play surfaces and environments.  Toys are chosen for texture, sound, and visual appeal.  Their play yard includes tubs with colored balls, tunnels, swimming pool, tippy board, balance disk, hanging tug toys, stuffed animals, and paper towel rolls.  We want to expose the puppies to as many environments as possible so they can go to their new homes confident, friendly, and ready to learn. 

All Lokasteinn Puppies will be registered with the AKC.  They will have micro-chips, their first set of shots and health exam before they leave for their new homes. 

See our “Puppies” page for photos of puppies and information regarding upcoming Icelandic Sheepdog litters.

The Icelandic Sheepdog - Description

The Icelandic Sheepdog is a Nordic herding Spitz, having pricked ears and curled tail.  The Icelandic Sheepdog is lively, friendly, inquisitive, and courageous.  The countenance is contented, frequently smiling, and the ears very mobile.  Movement is brisk, free and easy, and the breed has great endurance. 

The Icelandic Sheepdog is happy, lively, active, energetic and very alert to everything around them.  They are affectionate, sweet and eager to please, intelligent, quick learners, and easy to train.  They are exceptionally gentle with children.  They are at all times friendly and non-aggresive unless they sense danger.  The dog is very social; a typical family dog which is very devoted to everyone in his family.  They prefer to be with their family at all times and do not do well being left alone for long periods of time.  They are happiest when they can follow their family around the house or lie quietly for hours under a desk, in a corner, or outside the door, watching and waiting. 

Outside they are a study of poetry in motion!  The Icelandic Sheepdog is a hardy and agile herding dog.  Hunting instincts are not strong.  Although it is not a watchdog, it will bark an enthusiastic welcome to announce the arrival of any visitor.

Icies excel in canine performance events such as obedience, agility, fly ball, rally and herding.  Their gentle friendly nature makes them great therapy dogs to be used in hospices, nursing homes and as “reading dogs” with children.  Their confidence and intelligence makes them very capable search and rescue and tracking dogs.  Icelandic Sheepdogs are wonderful family dogs and a great addition for most homes.

The Icelandic Sheepdog eats little, keeps themselves clean, require only occasional brushing and regular trimming of their nails and dew claws.  Litters are usually 2-4 pups; whelping difficulties are rare.  There is one caveat;  puppy hood can last until the dogs are 1 1/2 to 2 years old.
