Question for Iceland Dopers...

A friend of mine at work heard that it is illegal to own a dog in Iceland (radio trivia question.) If there are any Dopers in Iceland (or anyone else who knows…) is this true? And the thing we both really want to know, what is the reason for this? :confused:

IANAL (Icelandic or otherwise), but it doesn’t seem very likely and would make the Icelandic Kennel Club pretty redundant wouldn’t it?

It’s not true. The Kennel Club of Iceland has its own site, but it’s in Icelandic.

Here are some pictures of Iceladic dogs.

There may be a kernel of truth there though. Until recently, it was illegal to import pets into Iceland. The rules have changed though.

Do we have any icelandic dopers here?

Thanks for the responses, all. It didn’t seem to make much sense.
