MEMBERS CODE OF ETHICS The long term sustainability and health of the BMH breed in America rests in the hands of those that love, care and breed this dog. Thoughtless or reckless behavior endangers not only the health of personal animals, but the dogs of others, and the future generations to come. It is for this reason that the BMHCA sets forth a Code of Ethics that all members strive to achieve . Conduct To conduct oneself in a professional manner pertaining to all involvement with the BMHCA and UKC. Uphold all rules and policies concerning activities sponsored by these organizations. Avoid intentionally ruining the reputation of other breeders or these organizations. Welfare of the Dogs In My Care Members make it a priority to provide nutritious food, exercise, socialization, training, Veterinary care, and affection throughout their dog’s lifetime. Puppies are in need of proper socialization and immunity protection. It is therefore important that no puppy be placed, shipped /transported before 8 weeks of age. Members must make every effort to ensure their puppies and dogs are placed in homes free of abuse, neglect, and mistreatment. Dogs and puppies are never to be sold at auction, given as raffle or lottery items, sold to dog fighting brokers, wholesalers, labs or pet stores. Members will encourage puppy buyers to uphold the same principles. Breeder’s Commitment to Quality and Care Member’s breeding should be done to improve the best qualities of the BMH as set forth in the FCI and UKC breed standard. Members will provide buyers with a Veterinarian health and vaccination record. Puppy and dog buyers will be supplied with a written care packet and contract. Members will breed only mature dogs and bitches that have passed health tests and have a Health Certificate from a licensed Veterinarian. Members will stay current on any genetic testing or health related problems. Members must not breed dogs or bitches known to have genetic diseases. Member’s breeding practices must be done in an honest way that includes discussing problems or diseases occurring within your line, being responsible for any health issues that arise from your line. Members will have written transactions and contracts for buyers stating your policies and conditions for puppies and dogs sold. Use Non-Breeding contracts for pet quality puppies or dogs. Full Registration should be reserved for show or breeding quality. Members recognize the need for long term care and responsibility of the BMH they produce. Therefore, Members will take back, re-home, replace, and rehabilitate at their expense, dogs that they have bred, co-bred, sold, or otherwise have been a party to. Written contracts or agreements with the buyer will state that should a need arise, the animal will be returned to the Member instead of relinquishing to an animal control facility. If an animal is deemed unable to be rehabilitated or re-homed, the Member will advise humane euthanasia, or will be responsible for having this done if the owner is unable to do so.
