Playful and affectionate, the Icelandic Sheepdog was brought to Iceland by Vikings around the ninth century. This breed was used to protect flocks from prey. Today, the Icelandic Sheepdog still has a habit of watching the sky and barking at birds – or pretty much anything. They make a good watchdog but not a great guard dog as they are too friendly towards strangers. An intelligent breed, the Icelandic Sheepdog learns quickly and eagerly however early and consistent training is necessary. They are affectionate and get along great with other dogs, people, and even children. This cheerful and inquisitive breed makes a wonderful family companion.
