The American Polish Lowland Sheepdog Association, Inc.,is a 501 (c) 3 Public Charity national club. It's goal is for members to  have FUN, while providing PLS owners and PON breeders information about the breed, PON buying information, training, dog activities, sharing, and more. It is different than any other PON-breed club. We recognize that the majority of PON owners are pet owners who do not want to show or breed. Our goal is to provide opportunities for  owners and PON breeders to get together, and while having fun, learn about the breed and the many activities the PON owners are, and would like to be involved in. We want to share our experiences and support one another in any way we can. We also want to share a wealth of information about the breed.  Of course, we would also like you to  share your amazing stories about the breed whether they be well-behaved or "naughty"!
A quarterly electronic newsletter will keep everyone connected through pictures and articles contributed by the members, and will also include information from the Board.  The Board of Directors made up of knowledgable and experienced PON breeders as well as dedicated PON pet owners  is proud to invite you to become a part of the American Polish Lowland Sheepdog Association, Inc., which is planning to do all of the above and more. This  concept of a PLS club was founded to be different. The APLSA, as we are also known, will be charitable, educational, protective of the breed,and will provide a positive social environment.
We , as an Association, is affiliated with no particular group or any other club. Belonging to more than one club is no problem with us. We are planning to independently co-ordinate picnics, Association activities,  and other fun and exciting events so owners and breeders everywhere will know where they can get together to have FUN with their dogs at all kinds of events.When people think of a dog club, they too often think of just showing and breeding.  We will encourage our members to recognize the breed as multi-talented , unique, adaptive, and can do just about anything any dog can do.  So let's join together and take this journey having fun and encouraging one another every step of the way!

There are many activities (click on any activity to the left to learn more) in which you as  pet owners and PON breeders can excel. PON breeders should know of these opportunities and help their PON puppy  buyers learn more about them.Join along with those already experiencing these activities and have great
