The answer if very simple   These important parts of membership will govern how we in the Association are expected to  treat one another and the manner in which we represent ourselves as owners of the Polish Lowland Sheepdog  to others.  If we are to gain respect in the dog world, it behooves us to represent ourselves in nothing but a positive fashion . The APLSA Code of Conduct sets the standards expected at various events and guidelines for social media which often are interpreted by those who see what we do in the world.

NOTE:   The APLSA Code of Ethics and the APLSA Code of Conduct are very important to the founders of the American Polish Lowland Sheepdog Association, Inc.  They believe that there is always a way to better promote the Polish Lowland Sheepdog while working with the public to make sure the breed is presented accurately and realistically.  The Polish Lowland Sheepdog is a unique and wonderful breed, but not a breed for everyone, and this should be made very clear by those who place them into homes.
