  • Care

    Due to their thick double coats, Icelandic Sheepdogs are profuse shedders that require regular grooming. Brush their coats at least once a week—and once a day during spring and fall shedding seasons—to remove dirt and prevent matting. Trim their nails and clean their ears to keep the breed looking and feeling its best. A dental care routine, including at-home teeth brushing and professional dental cleanings, should be a regular part of their grooming. Start when Icelandic Sheepdogs are young to ensure good oral hygiene throughout their lives.
