|Our Breeding Plans and Practices
To those who may wonder why we are not on the Icelandic Sheepdog Association of America's Approved Breeders page, we have
voluntarily removed our Breeders listing from this page. A Breeder's listing used to be a member benefit of the club for anyone
following the ISAA Breeding Guidelines, there is now $25.00 fee per puppy sold in the USA to have a breeders listing on the Breed
club's website. There is however no fee charged to stud dogs, foreign members who advertise their kennels or to those who do not sell
their puppies to new owners in the USA. As none of my puppy families have ever come from the ISAA's website I saw no need to pass
this additional cost along to my new owners by increasing my purchase price. We are still members of the ISAA and adhere to their
Our puppies are whelped from health tested sires and dams in accordance with the guidelines of the Icelandic Sheepdog Association of
America. Fox Meadow puppies will be whelped and raised in our home along side the rest of the Fox Meadow pack. We will strive to
give them a nurturing environment so that they will get the very best possible start in life.
Our lovely ladies are fed a holistic fish based food giving them and their developing offspring a diet rich in Omega-3 fatty acids and
DHA, a building block for improved mental development. As this diet is a constant in their life, they will continue on it through nursing
and the puppies will be started on it as they begin on solid food.
We will begin early Nero-stimulation exercises at day three, clicker training begins as soon as their eyes open and they can hear and do
early socialization exercises to help shape balanced dogs for their new families. We hope to begin training for their new families in
areas such as walking on a lead, stairs, potty training and the obedience basics as soon as the youngsters are able.
Puppies from Fox Meadow will be AKC registered, will be micro-chipped and recorded, have all age appropriate immunizations, exams
and health checks, a puppy care package and lifetime "technical support" for your Fox Meadow puppy.
