IADSA was founded in 2007 by a group of agility competitors who joined forces to start an association that was run entirely by agility competitiors. The idea was that all members needs and desires would be at the heart of the associations decision making. Since its inception IADSA has grown from strenght to strenght and now has over one hundred members. IADSA licenced competitions offer dogs and handlers 4 jump heights and 7 different grades. This allows members to compete against dogs of similar size and ability.
