The first step in affecting legislation is to be outstanding examples of breeders, owners, club members by accepting our responsibilities in the canine community. We cannot be silent to the voices of those determined to affect not only dogs and the breeding of dogs but the value of dogs, their relationships with their owners and their importance to communities.
It is our responsibility to do all we can to educate the community, participate in our legislative process and be examples to our home towns, cities and states demonstrating responsible dog ownership. Unless we lead by example, we have little chance of protecting the future of dog ownership.
