BBCR Code Of Ethics
The job of a registry is to provide, not only a pedigree system to track the lineage of purebred dogs, but more importantly to educate, inspire and develop the breeds it represents. The best and most enjoyable way to do this, is in form of conformation and performance events. The sport of gathering together by breed and engaging in conformation shows can be traced back as far as the late 1800’s. Over the years it has become a much revered way to bring breeders, fanciers and spectators together, to have the breeds they love, evaluated by a Judge who is knowledgeable about the breed, it’s structure and it’s purpose. As with any sport, it is crucial to have a measure that we hold ourselves to. BBCR members must exhibit sportsmanship, camaraderie, respect of others and self, pride in what they stand and uphold the integrity of dog ownership and breeding. This measure or Code of Ethics becomes the blueprint of integrity for each person involved to strive to meet.
