Vinlands Bangsi - Two Years Old

In my humble opinion, Icelandic sheepdogs are like no other breed of dogs. They are extremely smart, are easily trained with positive reinforcement, are a perfect size, are relatively free from genetic problems compared to many other breeds, have a very strong desire to be with their human families, are clean and easy to care for, are just really happy dogs.

My last litter was two years ago - time flies.  It has been heartwarming to hear from the families. It means so very, very much to me. 

If you look over the messages and photos of the dogs from the new families of this litter I think you will notice that they all are gorgeous and no two look alike! The wonderful diversity of Icelandics is yet another of their strong points, in my opinion.

I just heard last night from Courtney whose family adopted Bangsi two years ago.

You were so very right about Bangsi, he is a people focused little guy. He is 
still remarkably smart and learns new things quite easily. He knows his toys 
by name and will bring specific toys on request. He learns new names for 
new toys in just minutes and generalizes words like "bone" to all his 
various types of "bones".

 As a student of cognition and the brain I am astounded at his abilities in the realm of mental gymnastics. 

Anyway- mostly we want you to know he is loved, we'll exercised, and not too spoiled. ☺

I am so pleased with the wonderful families these puppies found. Frankly the hardest part about raising puppies 
is finding the perfect families for each of them.
