About the AKC Breed Columns

The ISAA is the parent club for the Icelandic Sheepdog in the American Kennel
Club (AKC). "The breed columns are a time-honored feature of the AKC Gazette.
Each columnist is appointed by a breed's national parent club, which preserves the
breed's standard and helps to educate breeders, judges, and the public about the
breed's history, function, and possible health issues. ... Columnists are asked to
write about topics of interest to the fancy in general as well as those specific
interest to judges and devotees of the breed. The breed columns rotate by group
so that each breed's column can appear four times a year."
