All breeders who register their puppies, and new owners who register ownership
of their dogs with the Kennel Club, accept the jurisdiction of the Kennel Club and
undertake to abide by its general Code of Ethics.

All Members of the Midland Collie Club undertake to abide by its general code of
ethics as follows:

i. To maintain the best possible standards of health and environment for
my dogs, not keeping more than I can maintain or properly care for.

  • ii. To sell only puppies or adult dogs which, to the best of my knowledge,
    are of sound health and temperament.

  • iii. To refuse to sell to dealers, pet shops, or any buyers where I have reason
    to believe the dog will not be properly cared for.

  • iv. To maintain, and pass on to buyers of stock, accurate records of health,
    pedigree and registration. To advise on feeding and rearing.

  • v. To refuse a stud service to any bitch that is known to be suffering from
    any defect which renders it unlikely to breed good, normal puppies. Nor
    shall I use a stud dog known to have these failings.

  • vi. To accept that dogs, like people, grow old and need special care and
    attention. I am, therefore, prepared to love and care for a dog for all of
    its life whilst in my ownership.

  • vii. To not knowingly allow any of my pure bred dogs to be mated to a dog of
    a different breed, to a cross bred dog, or to an unregistered dog of the
    same breed.

  • viii. To not knowingly misrepresent the characteristics of the breed, nor
    falsely advertise or mislead any person regarding the health or
    temperament of any dog.

  • Breach of these provisions may result in expulsion from club membership,
    and/or disciplinary action by the Kennel Club and/or reporting to the relevant
    authorities for legal action, as appropriate.
