									                             ISAA Checklist for Litter Information

Before breeding your dogs you should gather the following in formation on them. (Check the lines on the
left when you have completed each item.) Hip test results, elbow test results (recommended not required),
eye test results, copy of the AKC, UKC, ISAA or FCI pedigree, a current good quality photos of sire and
dam.

Breed ing Icelandic Sheepdogs need to have health checks for eyes, hips and elbows (recommended not
required) of the parents on file in order for you to advertise your puppies on the ISAA webpage. Breeding
females must have reached the age of two before we will permit their puppies to be listed. Males must
have reached the age of at least ten months in order for their puppies to be listed. Only one litter per 12
month period will be list for each female, not to exceed four litters.

Use the checklist below to help you keep track keep track of what you have done. Keep the originals for
your own records. You will need to send in two copies to the ISAA.

                                                 HIPS
_____ = The Un iversity of Pennsylvania Hip Improvement Program (Penn HIP) hip dysplasia test results
                           AND/OR
_____ = Orthopedic Foundation for Animals (OFA) h ip dysplasia test results

                                                   ELBOWS
_____= Elbow test – (patellar lu xation) results (recommended)

The OFA will do a Preliminary HD and Elbow Test before the age of two. At two years of age, the test
needs to be repeated. The score will be: excellent, good, fair, borderline, mild, etc.

The Penn HIP test can be done earlier than two years of age. Check with your vet for places to have these
tests done. Females should have the test done before breeding. This test, if done earlier, does not need to
be repeated after the age of two. The scores we need to know are the Diffraction Index scores for the right
and left hips. They will look like this: left 0.42, right 0.42.
============================================================
_____ = Can ine Eye Registration Foundation (CERF) test

Breed ing Icelandic Sheepdogs need to have their eyes tested for inherited conditions. The eye tests need to
be done annually before breeding. (Hav ing the CERF test done in January of each year you plan to breed
obviates further testing CERF testing during that calendar year.)
============================================================
_____ = A copy of the Cert ified Pedigree fro m the AKC, UKC, ISAA or FCI country

You only need to send in a copy of the pedigree for your breeding dogs once.
============================================================
_____ = A current photo of your breeding dogs

Write official registered name and the AKC, UKC or FCI reg istration number on the back of the photo.
These photos will appear on the website so choose a good photo. They are non -returnable.

When all of the above informat ion is on file, we will post the web page for the litter shortly

After your puppies are born it is important to update their photos regularly. So me of us like to have an
object like a dog toy in each photo so as the puppies mature, size co mparisons can b e made. You should
have new individual puppy photos preferably every seven days.

                      Breeder Guidelines for Litters – Gentle Suggestions

_____ 1. You need to register the whole litter with the AKC very soon after they are born in order to get the
paperwork for registering the puppies individually before they leave their birth home.

_____ 2. Use your kennel name when naming your dogs. Put the kennel name first. That makes organizing
BreedMate, our data base much easier which makes the Tracking Chair's job significantly easier. We can
spot simple errors in birthdates and sire and dam names quickly if they are all together. We can avoid
duplications if they are all together.

_____ 3. Choose your puppies' official names before they leave their birth ho me. You can do this with or
without input fro m the purchasers. Some breeders like to use the same first letter or letters for their
puppies’ official names because it makes it easier to remember wh ich litter the puppies are fro m and their
birth year. So me breeders like to give buyers several choices and let them p ick the final choice. Several
members have long lists of good Icelandic names. Try to use less common names. That makes confusion
over names less likely in the future. When you choose names, think of what the possible call names could
be if those names are shortened. If you explain the difference between the “official name” and the “call
name”, most new puppy buyers understand and accept that.

_____ 4. Fill in all the AKC paper work for reg istering the individual puppies. New owners are often
confused about how to fill in the forms. They often are so busy with their new puppies that they never send
in the papers. Including the filled out forms along with a stamped envelope addressed to the AKC makes
the new owner's job easier. The more puppies that actually get registered with the AKC, the better. You
can fill in much o f the paperwork weeks before it is needed.

_____ 5. Choose the color fro m the AKC colo r list on the website that you "think" the puppies will
eventually become before they leave. (The new o wners can always change the color at the age of a year or
so if they think it 's necessary.)

_____ 6. Include a check made out to the AKC for registering the puppy. Consider that as part of the cost
of delivering the puppy to the new owner. That is the surest way to ensure the actual registration of your
puppy with the AKC FSS. (Reminder: You must first register the whole litter with the AKC FSS and then
the individual puppies must also be registered.)

_____ 7. Starting in 2005 we are asking breeders to contribute to a fund for rescuing puppies that were
placed in a bad situation. This fund is intended for truly emergency use only. If a breeder needs to re-home
a puppy, this fund is not for that purpose. We are asking for a $2.00 donation per puppy to be paid to the
ISAA Rescue Fund. The cost per litter should not exceed $10.00 regardless of the number of puppies in the
litter. More details will beco me available soon. A small percentage of the membership dues will also go
into this fund.

_____ 8. PLEA SE - Keep a separate list to mail to the Tracking Chair when the last puppy is delivered.
(See belo w!) Frankly this is the hardest part of the Tracking Chair's job. It's all of these loose details that
will make our records valuable for future generations. Keep a copy of this list for your records. You will
be surprised at how valuable it will become to you.

_____ 9. Send donation to ISAA Res cue Fund. Suggest $2.00 per puppy or $10.00 per litter,
which ever is less

This is the informat ion the Tracking Chair needs for both our ISAA registrations and the BreedMate
database. This is also valuable for A KC records.
