    Can anyone tell me if there are any breed standards from the ASOP online that I could take a look at? Doesn't matter which breed, I am just curious to see how they are written. I do plan to buy the book when I have the money, but that may be awhile. Thanks.

    As far as I know, you cant find it online. They want you to buy the book. I've seen bits and pieces of it, relating to specific breeds, but you really wont be able to read it online....unless something has recently changed.

    Thanks for the replies, I was just wondering. I know the ASOP has been published for over a hundred years so the earlier editions (any before 1923) would be in the public domain.
    Do they ever update the standards or does it stay the same once it is published?

    The SOP is updated regularly and you need a current copy. Try your local library.
