Welcome to our community! We believe that everyone can benefit from this space, and to ensure a positive experience for all, we kindly ask you to read and adhere to these guidelines:
Puppyworks is an advocate of the Positive Reinforcement Training Method and we also value Free Speech. While discussing various topics related to dogs, we want to promote responsible and compassionate discussions. Therefore, we do not allow posts promoting practices that are overtly harmful or hurtful to dogs. However, we do recognize that some sensitive topics like euthanasia, collars, and other training methods warrant discussion with some flexibility. Let's engage in these conversations with empathy and understanding.
Respect and Consideration: We encourage mutual respect among all members, regardless of differing opinions. Let's maintain a friendly and open atmosphere where discussions can flourish.
No Disparaging Comments: Please refrain from making derogatory remarks about other members, individuals, or their businesses. Let's keep interactions constructive and respectful.
Relevant Content: To maintain the focus and organization of the community, we request that you keep your posts relevant to the forum topic. If it doesn't fit any existing category, the General Discussion section is available.
No Spam, Soliciting, or Advertising: We kindly ask that you refrain from spamming, soliciting, or promoting any form of advertising within the community. Let's keep the discussions genuine and informative.
Mindful Language: We appreciate thoughtful and considerate communication. Avoid using foul language to ensure a welcoming environment for everyone.
