The Asian Dog Agility Association was founded in Februari 2019 to develop the Dog Agility Sports across Asia.
It has a neutral and independent position, with a supportive attitude for all proponents of positive sportsmanship in Dog Agility
It is however very difficult to travel with dogs between the different Asian Countries. Quarantine is always required when you arrive at your destination and again when returning back home.
Europe however has a very developed and very safe system where all vaccinations are registered in the European dog passport. This also makes it easy and safe to travel from Asia to Europe, and back.
For this reason it was decided to organise the Pro Plan Asian Dog Agility Open 2019 in Europe, namely in Netherlands.
