American Polish Lowland
Sheepdog Association

Welcome to the American Polish Lowland Sheepdog Association-APLSA


Bisia and Olek
This is the home page of the American Polish Lowland Sheepdog Association, a 501 (c) club which provides  reliable health and educational information   On this site you will find the answers to many of your questions about the breed and about our organization. Skim through the pages on the left and you may well find interesting topics and maybe even some things you had not thought about. While the perfect breed for many people, it is not the breed for everyone. Our mission,  previously stated, is to be  a non profit public charity which will provide excellent , reliable health and educational  information. In addition it is meant to be a place for  owners to form lasting friendships which often begin with our common love of the breed. Besides the information on this home page, the Association operates  several additional sites to help you find more information about finding  a good breeder, buying a good puppy,and other information and tips about owning and caring  and doing activities with   your PL Sheepdog (PON, Polski Owczarek Nizinny)

The APLSA wants to be sure both you as a member, and other owners, get good reliable health and educational information. Our goal is for members to  have fun, enjoy one another and our PONs, while providing PLS owners and breeders helpful information. We want to provide you with buying information, training, dog activities such as conformation, obedience, flyball, agility,barn hunt, and many more.  It is different than any other PONs-breed club. We recognize that the majority of owners are pet owners who do not want to show or breed.Some will choose to breed.  Our goal is to provide opportunities for  owners and breeders  to share our learned information: sometimes via phone calls, at shows or other events in person, through seminars, conference calls known as call-in's, etc., When we pool our information and share our activities and experiences, we as the owners learn from one another and sometimes from experts in the fields where we want more.  We want to 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"!  The bottom line is that we again want to share reliable health and educational information in any way we can with one another.
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 knowledgeable and experienced breeders as well as dedicated 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 will be charitable, educational, protective of the breed,and will provide a positive social environment.
We , as an Association,are 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!
All of the PONS on this home page have in the past or are presently owned by past and present Officers and the   Board of DIrector Members
