I understand that membership in the English Setter Association of America/Gold Country English Setter Fanciers is a pledge of sportsmanship, ethics, and responsibility and that as a member:
I am the caretaker not only of the individual dog but of the reputation and welfare of the breed as a whole.
It is my responsibility to educate the public and to explain, define, and protect the breed.
It is incumbent upon me to set the example of each dog being individually cherished but only the physically and temperamentally sound being bred.
I accept the premise that if I breed a litter those dogs are my responsibility throughout their lifetime.
My conduct and actions in the sport should reflect positively upon the Association/Club and other fanciers of the breed.
I will volunteer my time and talents in Association/Club works and endeavors.
I will encourage the novice, guide the beginner, and school the student while myself seeking to exhibit the friendly sportsmanship that befits this gentlemenís breed
