Acceptance of the Code of Ethics
This is probably the single most important part of the joining process, which is why we ask you to do it before all else.
Think carefully before agreeing. Membership in the MDBA was never intended to be for "everybody". Only those who genuinely see this as a definite commitment to focusing on what is best for the dogs should apply.
