Code of Conduct

Be kind and courteous 

We’re all in this together to create a welcoming environment. Let’s treat everyone with respect. Healthy debates are natural, but kindness is required. Personal attacks, name calling and trolling will not be tolerated. 

No hate speech or bullying 

Make sure everyone feels safe. Bullying of any kind isn’t allowed. 

Advocating harsh training methods not allowed 

While we respect that everyone has their own views for training LGDs we do not advocate harsh training methods such as E-collars, prong collars, dominance training, hitting, yelling, rolling, or any other negative reinforcement training methods. Everyone is free to believe what they want but do not suggest such methods on this forum or post photos of harsh training tools here. Only positive reinforcement training suggestions are allowed here.

 

No promotions or spam 

Give more than you take in this forum. Sharing of truly useful products or resources is allowed. Spam and irrelevant links are not allowed. 

Respect everyone’s privacy 

Being part of this forum requires mutual trust. Authentic, expressive discussions make groups great, but may also be sensitive and private. What’s shared in the group should stay in the group unless stated otherwise.
