The National Association of Dog Obedience Instructors,
Inc. was founded to elevate the standards of dog obedience instructing.
Mutually to aid both dog and human in the solution of the many problems
of the profession and to designate certain members as having attained
certain skills and knowledge. Acknowledging these facts, the members
are pledged to maintain a high level of trust and integrity in the
practice of their skill.
This Code of Ethics should not be recognized
in passive observance, but as a set of dynamic principles guiding
the members’ conduct and way of life in obedience instructing. It
is the instructor’s duty to practice this profession according to
this Code of Ethics.
As a member of the NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF
DOG OBEDIENCE INSTRUCTORS, INC.,
I shall remember that to my community
and all with whom I come in contact in dog obedience work, I typify
dog obedience. It is my duty to keep the ideal high.
I will always
strive to better the understanding of dog obedience, proving it
a work and profession worthy of respect and admiration. Always will
I advocate training by such methods that will serve the best interests
of the dog and the owner.
I will work towards improved methods of
instruction for all breeds of dogs. At all times in my association
with people and in my work with dogs will I conduct myself in a
professional manner. I will never conduct myself in such a manner
that will bring discredit to this Association or to the profession.
I will work to train persons as competent instructors for dog obedience
training and toward this end will always freely exchange ideas,
methods, and techniques in connection with dog obedience instruction.
I will not publicly criticize other instructors or their training
methods. This includes expressly or implicitly criticizing other
trainers in my advertising or promotional material.
