Code of Ethics - NADOI
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.
