Code of Ethics

As a member of the Scottish Terrier Club of Greater Denver, I agree to conduct myself in a sportsmanlike manner at all times, especially when representing the Club or the breed in public. I will handle all conflicts, disagreements and/or misunderstandings with Club members in a professional manner, and will adhere to conflict resolution guidelines in the Club Constitution and By Laws. I will maintain the highest standards of sanitation and care for my dogs. I will consider the health and welfare of my own dogs and the dogs of our breed to be above personal gain or profit. I will be familiar with the AKC standard for our breed and will provide accurate information about the breed. I will provide assistance to novices whenever possible.

As a member of the Scottish Terrier Club of Greater Denver who breeds or keeps a dog at stud,

I will breed for the improvement of the breed as exemplified by the AKC standard and for fine health and temperament. I will refuse stud services to bitches in poor health, of unsound temperament, and/or having serious hereditary or structural defects. I will not use for stud a dog with any of the above conditions. I will sell pet quality puppies with a spay/neuter contract or will withhold registration papers until the puppy is spayed/neutered. I will not sell or donate dogs to commercial wholesalers or retailers, or to kennel operators or individuals whom I judge to be operating a “puppy mill.” I will not sell a puppy to an individual whom I have reason to believe will not adequately care for the dog. I will always be truthful when representing or advertising puppies/dogs for sale and will disclose any known health or hereditary defects.
