I will take my dog to the vet regularly and keep all vaccinations current.
I will pick-up and properly dispose of my dog’s waste.
I will make sure my dog is regarded as an AKC Canine Good Citizen® by being aware of my responsibilities to my neighbors and to the community.
I will ensure that the proper amount of exercise and mental stimulation appropriate for my dog’s age, breed and energy level is provided.
