  1. Breed with responsibility. This includes careful consideration and planning, taking into account the ultimate betterment of the breed, and the ongoing happiness and wellness of both parents, as well as current and future litters.
  2. Minimize puppy stress by:
    1. A stress-free physical and emotional environment, away from other dogs on the premises.
    2. A proper, appropriate amount of space to move with and around her litter.
