4 Code of Ethics The ICAW Professional Pet Breeders take pride in their responsibilities for proper care and handling of their pets. The following code describes general considerations: To provide food, water, and care necessary to protect the health and welfare of the pets that are in your care. To provide proper veterinary care of these pets for disease prevention, etc. To provide clean, well-kept facilities to allow safe, humane, and efficient pet management. To use proper re-homing practices for your pets, to ensure a happy and safe home. To use only veterinary accepted methods, if needed, to dispose of a pet. To provide all personnel with a working knowledge of your pets, including proper handling techniques. To provide transportation for your pets that avoid undue stress caused by overcrowding, excessive time spent in transit, or by discomfort during loading and unloading. Any person who willfully mistreats pets WILL NOT be tolerated in this organization. To conduct all business in an ethical manner. All breeders agree to follow the recommendations set forth in the above statements. All breeders agree to follow the USDA and/or the Indiana Board of Animal Health rules. All breeders agree to obtain all required licenses and operate your business 100% legally. Encourage all breeders to further their knowledge by attending meetings and conferences, and being active in their Chapter.

5 From the ICAW President 5 A few things we have started in Wayne County that have really helped us at a county level are: 1. KMA Program 2. Exercising & Socializing 3. Rehoming Adult Breeding Parents We have not started with the health checks on adults, but hope to within the year. If you rehome your adults be sure they are spayed or neutered before leaving your property so the next owner cannot use them for breeding purposes. We started exercising & socializing a year ago & would not go back to the old ways. We ve found this gives us great momentum and pays mentally. Our dogs are happier & so are we. REMEMBER: John Lapp ICAW President ONE STEP AT A TIME.

6 A WORD FROM THE Eastern Indiana CHAPTER 6 By Eli King At the start of every month, I always write down what the daily kennel checks include: check all the dogs for any sores, long toenails, or any other issues. I give shots to whoever needs them puppies and adults. I exercise all the adults every day and my children socialize the puppies every day. Eli King January 12, 2015 Monday Daily kennel check; Kennel wash down I let out the adults to have a morning run in the meadow it is amazing how they just romp & play. Paul 13, David 8, SueAnna 5, & Daniel 2, had all the puppies out and were playing with them. It is amazing how those puppies open up to the kids if they are socialized!! And the kids enjoy the playing just as much!! January 13, 2015 Tuesday Daily kennel check; kennel wash down; Sharon red tri female gave birth to 2 black tri mini aussie doodles; the dad was a crème mini poodle January 14, 2015 Wednesday Daily kennel check; kennel wash down The children are playing with the puppies in the kennel; usually we bring them to the house but because of the frigid temperatures we keep them in the kennel January 15, 2015 Thursday Daily kennel check; kennel wash down; Daisy blue merle mini aussie is bred to Spot a black tri mini aussie January 16, 2015 Friday Daily kennel check; kennel wash down Spirit black tri mini aussie female & Shane blue merle mini aussie welcomed a litter of 4 puppies; 3- blue merles 1 M, 2 F & 1- black tri M January 17, 2015 Saturday Daily kennel check; Linda 12 & Emma 10 cleaned all the feeders, washed down the sides of the kennel, the whelping apartments & disinfected everything January 18, 2015 Sunday Daily kennel check; kennel wash down Little Daniel has a little puppy and he can do anything with him.

They were cuddling their new furry friend. Just shortly after they left, they came back with the mini aussie puppy. They had stopped in at Wal-Mart, bought a leash and were walking the puppy when they noticed it didn t have a tail!! After explaining that all puppies are born with a tail, I agreed to give most of their money back. A boss once told me: A CUSTOMER IS ALWAYS RIGHT!! He is so right! I have implied that to my daily life and my business; and I have learned a lot. I encourage each of you to remember that. January 29, 2015 Thursday We flew a sheltie to New Mexico. I sold him for $500 + $450 shipping. Now, I find out that her Mom died and she stayed with her Dad for a while, now her Dad claims the puppy and she wants another one! January 31, 2015 Saturday We flew another sheltie a litter mate to the one shipped on Jan. 29 th, to Florida. I had her advertised on Purebred Breeders. She sold for $650 + $450 shipping Progress is impossible without change, and those who cannot change their minds cannot change anything. George Bernard Shaw

9 9 The Wheels Keep Turning By Lonnie Borkholder past president If our way of agriculture life continues in the future, it will be because of the hard work and dedication of the breeders and farmers of today. Legacies are left behind by people who have a vision and dedication to the mission. The spectators sitting on the sidelines will not have the privileges of sharing in the victory of the mission. To fulfill this mission, it takes men of action, integrity, and honesty. I will call these men warriors. The only thing required of being a spectator is a heartbeat. Man s life is like the steam that rises from boiling water, it only lasts for a short time then it s gone. Do we really have time to be only spectators? A spectator leaves no legacy behind; after the steam is gone there is nothing left. A warrior will leave a legacy behind, and will leave this world a better place for the generations following. The common trait present in all spectators is critizing the players on the field. I find this amazing how easy it is to sit and find fault with the people doing the work, while being too lazy to contribute anything. I don t think any one of us really finds this to be a trait that we respect od admire in a person, yet it is only human nature to do just that. Let us look deep inside ourselves and take a good inventory by the fruit man will know the tree. ICAW welcomes John Lapp as our new leader. I believe we have a winner and warrior in John. John as had some experiences in his life that a few of us can match. John has an off-season with his produce and really further our mission. Something that is already taking place a one call system for each chapter. This help to keep the members informed and updated. ICAW is also having meetings in areas where there is no current KMA Program. We just got back from Daviess County for their Chapter meeting. John Troyer and Milan Wingard (the dog bishops ) did a great job and kept the floor all day. These warriors had the breeders attention and talked about the priviledges of being involved in a program like KMA, and the benefits of belonging to an organization like ICAW (the Wheels Keep Turning). Also, planned for this Spring is a meeting in the Fort Wayne area for their Chapter. On a side note, our $35 ICAW membership does not cover all the needs for this great organization. We encourage all our warriors with the means to do what you can above this. Great things happen when a group of like-minded people come together to make a change. I feel sorry for all the spectators sitting on the guidelines content, just hoping that the wheel keeps turning. They will miss out on the sweet taste of victory that comes from a fulfilled

10 mission and will leave the world without leaving anything behind for the future farmers. In order for there to be victory it takes a battle and to have a battle it takes warriors. The best warriors are men and women with integrity vision not afraid of action. The wheel that turns ICAW is made up of men and women who fit this description. This is the call to action. Where do we see ourselves in this mission? Will we have enough strength to get off the bleachers and into the field? Our Savior said, Plenty is the harvest but few are the laborers. Jesus was a man of action and I believe he expects the same from us. Let us do all things, through him, with honesty and integrity. 10

12 12 A WORD FROM THE ALLEN COUNTY CHAPTER Greetings from New Haven, By John and Kanoshia Schmucker We are having some winter weather around here lately, having 12 inches of snow which seems to slow everything down a bit. We have our new kennel finished and moved in on Dec. 24, It seems to be a very nice Christmas gift to our dogs and puppies. They are happier, and with the new facility we are able to give them more socialization and exercise. All of our customers are now invited to look into our kennel through a window from our office/show room. We have lots of good reviews and testimonies on our website about our kennel. We are in the process of getting all our adults dogs OFA certified. We raise Siberian Huskies, Miniature Schnauzers, and Bernese Mountain Dogs, a total of 29 adults. We retail all of our puppies ourselves. So far, so good, but a lot of work!! in Allen County Mini Conference Open House May 8 th, :00 am 3:00 pm Lunch will be available John Lengacher, Jr. (260) Akc & Nutro Pending Speakers: USDA, Veterinarian Don t Miss It!!

13 13 Breeder Spotlight: Puppy Tale Kennel Enos and Lucy Miller My Wife, Lucy, and I are from Northern Indiana. We have been raising dogs for about 4 ½ years. What once started off as a hobby has now become a way of life. Watching them grow and getting to know each dog s individual personalities is one of the most enjoyable aspects. We truly love what we do! A little back ground on how we got started Just prior to Valentine s Day, right before we got married, I got Lucy a Miniature Chocolate Poodle puppy. The man I purchased Hershey from was a friend of mine and he showed me his kennel. I had no idea people did this for a living! During that exact moment, I came to a realization. I have always had a passion for dogs since I was a child and the second I realized I could do this for a living, I was determined to make it work. We began modestly and learned as we went. I like to think we are still learning and constantly evolving, doing everything we can for the health and well-being of our dogs. We raise a variety of different small breeds. We are particularly fond of Shih Tzus, Lhasa Apsos, Cavaliers, Yorkies and Maltese. We believe, without compromise, that our dog s health should always be our top priority. This includes physical health (grooming, clipping nails and getting teeth cleaned) of each dog to maintaining the cleanest kennel possible. Lucy s position with regards to the kennel is fairly simple; full time. She does an outstanding job of all aspects of the kennel, from keeping things clean and organized to grooming and keeping track of breeding. Her job does not

14 14 stop there either; she also oversees the maintaining of records as well. Our current facility has been built and operational for about 1 ½ years. We were able to do a lot of the work ourselves and take a great deal of pride in that. All of our adult dogs are on solid surface both inside and out. It works well for us to keep clean and the dogs really seem to enjoy it. The layout of our kennel is 12 x 96 (one sided). Our pen sizes are 4 x 5 inside with heated floor. The outside runs are 4 x12 cement with chain-link partitions. The long nights of building this kennel was well worth it the moment we first saw our dog s tails wagging from all of the extra room they have. Our nursery is approximately 24 x 30 and consists of 15 raised 5 x 5 pens. We utilize tender-foot flooring inside the pens to ensure both cleanliness and comfort for the puppies. We use whelping boxes for the first few weeks the puppies are born; we were amazed at how well they worked. We decided to take the slightly different approach of using trays with wood shavings underneath as well. Our exercise yard was the last thing to get finished. That was a very important aspect of our kennel to us. We took our time planning it because we wanted to ensure we got it done properly. The result was a completely fenced in 60 x140 play area. When they are out socializing and interacting with each other is when you can really have the opportunity to appreciate each dog s individual personality. Honestly, I think we enjoy watching them run, play and chase each other, run up and down the various ramps and play in the toy houses, probably as much as they enjoy doing it! We realize we have been very blessed in our business and have no one to thank but thelord. As time goes on we strive to continue to better our kennel in any way that makes it a more enjoyable placefor our dogs. Enos &Lucy Miller Puppy Tale Kennel

15 15 Meet and Greet Just Gets Better and Better This year's event was outstanding. Debbie and I were privileged to not only attend again but we had the joy of traveling 4 hours with 170 boxes of freshly baked pastries! Luckily you can't gain weight by just smelling delicious cinnamon rolls! What a great event. This is the 7 th Annual Meet & Greet. Thank you to Levi Graber, Craig Curry, Daryl and Kris Bontrager and all who had a part in this year s Meet & Greet. This year we had many more lawmakers attend and happily come to the stage in support of ICAW and our businesses. They all understand the issues and are thrilled to know the facts. Mike Pence, the governor, even stopped by to personally meet the breeders. It was great to see a much larger group of FFA students, probably 4 times more than last year. These students are the future of farming and ICAW is proactively reaching out to them to educate them and bring them along as allies in the fight against the animal right extremists. AKC gave credit to two lawmakers, Senators Brent Steele and Mark Messner, for the support they have given to the dog world. These two lawmakers were selected out of a hundred across the nation to be awarded "Legislator of the Year". Thank you Stacy Mason and Michael Issac for making these lawmakers feel appreciated. The highlight was Forrest Lucas, founder of Protect the Harvest speaking to the crowd about the facts and the reality of the animal rights agenda. He did not mince words. He had over-sized maps showing the very small amount of acreage that would be farmable if the animal rights extremist agenda is fulfilled. It was a very eye opening graphic. Protect the Harvest has added strength and awareness to the issues. Thank you Mr. Lucas for your support.

16 16 ICAW is doing an outstanding job to increase our connections with the Indiana lawmakers. The Meet & Greet is just one event in all that is done throughout the year. It has to be an intentional, continuous campaign to build relationships with the state and local legislators, city and county officials. Make it your mission to get to know your representatives and help them see you and your business in a positive light. As ICAW supports and teaches all of us to be the best we can be, they continue to fight for your right to sell pets with everything they've got, the best way to help lawmakers see the truth, is for you to share your stories and connect with your elected officials. You can help by visiting with your city, county and state officials, make phone calls, or write letters. Even send letters to the editor of articles that involve anything to do with dog breeding and reach out to local writers of blogs, talk radio and other media, and to commit to getting anyone else you can to weigh in on your behalf as well. The other side portrays you the professional breeder and us the pet store owners as greedy and cruel; without all our direct involvement, legislators have no reason to believe otherwise. Debbie and I are so thankful to each and every one of you and the awesome reputation we have built in Indiana. ICAW is a huge part of that but you are the ones that make it happen. We are proud to say that all our puppies come from Indiana! You're the BEST! I have shared this verse with you before as a guiding goal for our business. This is how we live our lives and have seen this same goal from the breeders we have been privileged to get to know Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters, since you know that you will receive an inheritance from the Lord as a reward. It is the Lord Christ you are serving. (Colossians 3:23,24) Thank you to ICAW, all the breeders and Pet Stores who took the time off of work or used vacation days to attend this event. It really makes a difference! John and Debbie Stottele The Family Puppy We Support ICAW! American Canine Association American Kennel Club AKC Reunite America s Pet Registry, INC.

19 19 Do you VALUE your dogs for what they are companions and pets, or simply what they can give you? Do you VALUE the importance of breed-specific health testing in order to ensure the health and well-being of future generations? Do you VALUE the importance of proper grooming and maintenance? Do you VALUE regular health exams and vaccination programs? Do you VALUE the importance of true socialization preparing your puppies for their future homes by exposing them to playtimes (with adults as well as children), grooming, light training, and other stimuli? Do you VALUE your kennel facility and the impact it has on your dogs, whether for good or bad? And do you value it enough to make the necessary improvements? Do you VALUE your prospective new puppy owners for what they are people who are earnestly searching for a member of the family from someone who cares as much for that dog as they do. ~ Luke and Amber Blakeslee

21 21 Are You Confused About Veterinary Care? Kennels that are licensed under the USDA have specific requirements for the provision of adequate veterinary care under the Animal Welfare Act. These are not always clearly understood by both kennel owners or veterinarians. The normal relationship between a dog owner and a veterinarian is called the Veterinary Client Patient Relationship. In that relationship, the veterinarian examines the dog, diagnoses the animal s condition, and makes recommendations regarding different treatment options. The client is free to choose any of those treatment options, or may choose to get a second opinion, or may simply choose to provide no treatment at all. In that scenario, the veterinarian has no authority to require a prevention program, any diagnostics, or treatments. The client s decisions are often based on economic considerations, emotional attachment to the dog, or level of concern for the welfare of the dog. Under the Animal Welfare Act, the veterinarian takes on an additional role. The kennel owner enters into a written contract with a specific veterinarian chosen by the kennel owner who is then known as the Attending Veterinarian or AV. The veterinarian then establishes the appropriate level of care for the animals covered by the license this is documented as the Program of Veterinary Care or PVC. In addition to describing the routine care this also describes how often the veterinarian must conduct a site visit to the kennel (at least once a year). That site visit is very important and helps the AV make sure that their recommendations will work for the kennel owner and really be in the best interest of the dogs. That s also a great time to talk about other aspects of kennel management / maintenance (such as biosecurity or cleaning & disinfection) and for the veterinarian to look over health records, breeding records, and any puppy mortality. You never know they may have a great idea to increase your efficiency and help your business as well as your dogs! In addition to giving the AV specific responsibility regarding health of the dogs, the Act also gives the Attending Veterinar ian the authority to tell the kennel owner what the appropriate care of the dogs will be for anything that impacts their health or well-being. Unlike the traditional Veterinary Client Patient Relationship described at the beginning, the kennel owner cannot just choose to ignore the recommendations of their Attending Veterinarian. Obviously, that does not me an the kennel owner has no say in how to provide care in their particular kennel but it does mean the kennel owner needs to be talking to their veterinarian. It is the responsibility of every kennel owner to clearly understand the expectations their Attending Veterinarian has for them and to ask questions if they don t understand or if they disagree with their vets recommendations. Ultimately, the veterinarian must set the standards for adequate veterinary care and the kennel owner has to feel comfortable with their veterinarian in that role. The Program of Veterinary Care, which is signed by both the kennel owner and the veterinarian, must describe all of the routine / preventative veterinary care for the dogs (vaccinations, deworming, heartworm prevention, flea control, etc). The veterinarian will work with the kennel owner to discuss various options for care, such as the use of extra-label drugs (those drugs that are labelled for other animals and being used in the dogs), but ultimately the kennel owner must follow the veterinarian s decision about the care that needs to be provided. Many times the Program of Veterinary Care (PVC) will also cover instructions regarding treatment of diseases and injuries commonly seen in kennels. The PVC will often act

22 22 like the first phone call a kennel owner might make to the vet to discuss a certain condition in their dogs. This way the ve t s phone is not continually ringing off the hook and the kennel owner doesn t have to continually pay the vet to provid e basic treatments that the vet and kennel owner have already discussed and agreed on how to treat. Remember, that agreement is already written up according to the vet s directions in the form of the PVC. It is completely appropriate that the kennel owner take direction from their PVC, if it covers the condition at hand. In order to function properly, a PVC must have enough detail so the breeder understands what to do, what drugs and dosages are required, and when it is appropriate to call the veterinarian for more specialized advice or if the animal does not respond to the initial treatment. When the PVC does not cover the condition the kennel owner has observed, the kennel owner must contact their Attending Veterinarian (AV), or another licensed veterinarian, if their AV is not available. The kennel owner must document all of their health observations, their reference to their PVC, or their conversation with the vet, as problems arise. The kennel owner must also document that they followed the recommendations given in the PVC or in their conversation with the vet, and that they completed the treatment prescribed for the animal. If the dog has a permanent condition, the kennel owner must obtain documentation from the vet that says that the dog no longer needs treatment of any kind, or, if ongoing treatment is necessary, how and with what the animal must be treated with for the rest of its life. Sometimes the vet will tell the kennel owner to just keep an eye on the dog and call them if it gets wors e. If the kennel owner follows the recommendations in the PVC, or the recommendation given directly from the veterinarian, and the condition of the dog is not resolved, it is the responsibility of the kennel owner to contact the vet again to discuss th e problem. The biggest responsibility of the kennel owner is to observe the dogs for abnormalities, involving health, or behavior. This observation has to be daily. If the kennel owner cannot observe the dogs themselves, they must have someone available who is able to tell if a dog is acting abnormally. And these observations must be written down, in a medical log, or somewhere. Observe and document. It is very important that the PVC be consulted or the veterinarian be contacted in a timely manner concerning any health or behavior issue. If these things are accomplished, your dogs will have received adequate veterinary care. There is a treatment log sheet that has been developed privately, and it has been offered to anyone who is interested in using it. There are many ways to document that your dogs are receiving adequate veterinary care. However, some of the kennel owners and some veterinarians have found this log sheet useful. This treatment log sheet is included with this article. If you have any questions about anything discussed in this article, please contact one of your local inspectors for clarification.

27 27 Don t Forget! ICAW MONTHLY TELECONFERENCE 1st Wednesday of Each 7:00 pm Call Pin # Press *1 to Talk

28 Northern Indiana Chapter 28 Monday, May 11, 2015: Meeting with AKC and USDA Topics: Giving Dogs a Choice; Incorporating Multiple Surfaces; Enrichment; Options For Their Future Monday, June 8, 2015 Northern Chapter Annual Picnic Wolfe Building in Shipshewana Dinner at 6:00 pm A WORD FROM THE Northern Indiana CHAPTER Greeting from the North, Most of you probably read the article of Monark Puppies in the last issue of the ICAW newsletter. I find these articles very interesting and educational. What got my attention was the cleaning and disinfecting they do for their puppies. They clean the puppy apartments a couple times each day and don t focus on disinfecting as much, as they feel this will make the puppy s immune system stronger! When these puppies get to their new home, they are better able to handle stress in all the different environments. Of course, the biggest thing probably depends on is what kind of flooring your puppies grow up on; if on concrete, stone, or gravel, raised floors, etc This will make a difference to how much you need to disinfect. However, my thinking is: Can we overdo it? This was a new thought for me. What are your thoughts on this? It gives us something to think about. On Monday February 16 th, we had a meeting in the Northern Chapter. Milan Wingard (President) talked a bit about the agenda for 2015; Myron Hochstetler (ICAW Secretary) gave us an update on ICAW and the Standards; Merle Miller (myself Vice President) shared a bit on how our elections will take place; Dave Miller (KMA Chairman) touched some on our KMA program. We had a dinner of pizza, chips, & pop sponsored by the Family Puppy, Happiness Is Pets, Midwest Farm & Pet, Heartland Farm & Pet, and Wingard s Custom Plastics. Thanks Sponsors!! We had an election of a KMA Board. Elected was Devon Yoder & Enos Miller. The rest of the evening was for breeder fellowship. Merle Miller Northern Chapter Vice President

30 30 heavily Preparing for Disasters Disasters can strike at any time with little or no warning. Having a disaster plan for your kennel will help keep animals safe in any disaster. First, consider what disasters might affect your kennel such as: a tornado, flood, fire, loss of electricity, earthquake or a chemical spill from a train or truck forcing an evacuation. Then, write a plan of how you will handle each disaster at your kennel. An important step in disaster planning is to keep at least a 7-day supply of food and water on-hand at all times in the event of a snow storm, power outage or times when roads are not drivable. In some disasters animals may need to be evacuated. Owners are encouraged to have at least two options of alternative housing for the dogs. Alternative housing sites should be at least several miles or more from your kennel. When planning for evacuations, find a transporter (a person with a truck and trailer) who can move the animals from the kennel to an alternative housing site. Individual identification on dogs is especially important in a disaster. When the dogs are misplaced and moved in a disaster, the dog s identification is proof of ownership. Dogs may be identified with a rabies tag or a microchip. A record of each animal s identification should be kept in the disaster plan as well as in a safe location away from the kennel. Keeping dogs up-to-date on vaccinations is especially important in a disaster, since the animals may be evacuated and come in contact with other animals. Dogs that are current on vaccinations are less likely to develop diseases. Disaster plans should include: Name, address and phone number (including cell) of owner Name, address and phone number of someone who can be contacted if owner is not available Name, address and phone number of the first site animals may be evacuated to Name, address and phone number of the second site animals may be evacuated to Name and phone number (including cell) of dog transporter Identification and vaccination records of each dog Fire evacuation plan Plan of how to provide animals with water and heat when the electricity is out Disaster plans should be copied and placed: In the kennel next to the BOAH-issued registration In the home (make family members aware of the plan) With a relative or emergency contact person off-site For more information about disaster planning visit BOAH s website: Fire Evacuation Plan Fires can ignite in many different ways. Having a fire evacuation plan can help save animals in the event of a fire. A local fire department may be willing to walk through a kennel to look for fire hazards and write a fire evacuation plan for the kennel. Fire evacuation plans should be posted near exit doors in the kennel.

32 A WORD FROM THE Southern Indiana CHAPTER 32 Hello everyone! Greetings from Southern Indiana. How s everybody doing? I thought we was going to sneak through without having much winter, but I had a surprise! IT came late. I don t have too much to say. On January 17 th, we had a dog breeders meeting. We had a great turnout, a few speakers talking about the appearance of our kennels, taking one step at a time, & how to leave a good impression to the public while raising these healthy, quality puppies. Thank you to the ones who gave up themselves to speak!! A snack of donuts and coffee was served, along with a lunch of pizza, chips, & pop; all sponsored by Pinnacle Pet. Thank you for Sponsoring!! We elected a Chapter President David J. Wagler, & a Vice President Mark Raber, welcome on board! On Feb. 20 th, we had another meeting to elect a KMA Board.
