Proud Puppy Love - Dog Breeder Code of Ethics

To promote the highest ideals among dog owners and breeders and aim for the continuous improvement of the breed within the framework of the approved breed standard, we pledge that: 


  1. I will follow the rules of good sportsmanship which will be a credit to the breed, the club and myself in all dog competition and activities. 
  2. I will fully explain to all prospective dog purchasers the advantages as well as the disadvantages of owning the breed.
  3. I will attempt to help and educate novice exhibitors and owners.
  4. I will keep well informed in the field of genetics and work to eliminate hereditary defects from the breed.
  5. I will, before entering a breeding agreement or doing any breeding of my own dogs, carefully analyze the conformation and pedigrees of the prospective sire and dam. I shall refuse the mating if, in my opinion, it will not be in the best interest of the breed. If I deny stud service, I will fully explain my reasons to the owner of the adult breeding female.
  6. I will participate in a program of having my breeding dogs examined by qualified and licensed veterinarians to eliminate common genetic defects from my bloodlines. 
  7. When a dog has hereditary faults of such nature as to make his or her use for breeding detrimental to the furtherance of the breed, that dog shall not be bred.
  8. I will refuse to sell my dogs or puppies to anyone who has been convicted of cruelty to animals.
  9. I shall provide my breeding adults and puppies with the very best veterinary care.
  10. I shall administer the optimum feeding program utilizing premium dog foods recommended by my veterinarian.
  11. I shall administer the daily socialization and exercise program as developed by my veterinarian for my adult dogs and puppies.
