Icelandic Sheepdog Breed Maintenance
The Icelandic Sheepdog comes in two coat lengths, but both will shed excessively as both have a dense undercoat. He will need to be brushed once or twice a week to remove any loose or dead hair. The more often you brush him, the less amount of hair that will be seen floating through the air or settling on clothes or furniture. Mainly, he will be a seasonal shedder and the undercoat will come out in clumps. During these times, brushing every day is recommended. His nails will need to be trimmed every two or three weeks. If he will allow it, you can use a grinder on his nails rather than nail clippers. Clean his ears once a week to prevent infections from occurring. Regular teeth cleaning using a veterinarian approved toothpaste is also recommended. Once a year he may need to have his teeth cleaned by a veterinarian.
