  • ABIDE BY ALL PUBLISHED NAAC RULES APPLYING TO REGISTRATION AND THE CLUB RULES.

  • AVAIL MYSELF OF EDUCATIONAL OPPORTUNITIES AS MAY BE ESTABLISHED BY THE NAAC.

  • INFORM THE NAAC BREEDER/HANDLERS DEPARTMENT OF ANY CHANGE IN HOME ADDRESS, TELEPHONE NUMBER OR EMPLOYER.

  • NEVER FALSELY REPRESENT A DOG AS A SERVICE ANIMAL WHEN IT IS NOT, OR AS AN ABLE-BODIED PARTY, ACCOMPANY A BONA FIDE SERVICE DOG TO GAIN TRAVEL BENEFIT DUE TO THE DOG’S STATUS.
