Dear AKC Judge,

We would like to offer you an educational resource developed expressly for you, a judges’ tutorial disk. In
addition to the disk we invite you to review our breed standard on the AKC website and our Illustrated Breed
Standard, which you can view by selecting the different buttons found on the left side of this web page.  The
Illustrated Breed Standard is a great tool for not only judges but also for breeders and owners of Icelandic

We have worked very hard with AKC and the country of origin to create an AKC standard that matches the
official Fédération Cynologique Internationale [FCI]* standard. Our educational tools are the result of the
collaboration of breed experts within the international Icelandic Sheepdog community.

Our committee has held education seminars for both judges and club members at various locations over the
years.  If we can be of assistance, whether it is in regard to our educational tools or seminars, please don’t
hesitate to ask.  Please email your inquiry to our
Board of Directors and we will see you in the ring!  

Best regards,

ISAA Judges Education Committee
