All members are required to honour the Club’s code of ethics.

  1. I WILL display good sportsmanship at all canine activities and extend every courtesy to interested Members of the public.
  2. I WILL attempt to help novice exhibitors and breeders when requested.
  3. I WILL, through my breeding program, take every effort to control and eliminate any known inherited defect.
  4. I WILL always keep the breed standard clearly in mind when considering a breeding agreement and will only proceed if, in my opinion, the resultant litter will enhance the breed. If I refuse any mating I will fully explain my reasons to the other party.
  5. I WILL explain to all prospective Siberian Husky buyers the disadvantages as well as the advantages of the breed.
  6. I WILL NOT sell any puppies to pet shops or dog dealers or their agents and I will include in all stud contracts, to be signed by the owner of the bitch, that no puppies resulting from the mating will be disposed of through these outlets.
  7. I WILL provide follow-up advice and assistance where requested to all persons purchasing a puppy from me.
  8. I WILL encourage all interested persons, particularly new Siberian Husky owners, to join the Siberian Husky Club of Victoria Inc.
