Emerald Valley Shelties
The purpose of the Club is to promote the Shetland Sheepdog as a companion, to serve as a source of education and information, and to perpetuate and improve the breed. As a member, because I have love and admiration for the Shetland Sheepdog, and because I realize the responsibility with which I am entrusted as a breeder and/or promoter of the breed, I will abide by the following Code of Ethics:
* I pledge to conduct myself in a manner which reflects credit on and support of the breed. I pledge to demonstrate honesty and integrity in my dealings with others, and to exhibit good sportsmanship in competitive events. I will comply with AKC regulations for showing and registration.
* I pledge to provide good housing, care and affection for all animals in my
possession. Dogs I take to public gatherings will be clean and healthy.
* I pledge to use my best efforts to locate responsible, loving homes for all animals sold or placed, and to provide follow-up information and guidance to the new owners.
The Club supports the concept of testing breeding stock for genetically transmissible health problems. The Club encourages the use of spay/neuter contracts and/or Limited Registrations in order to discourage the proliferation of uninformed or irresponsible breeding.
