Change is in the Wind for the NDAL

Happy New Year!!

The National Dog Agility League begins a new season effective January 1, 2021. We emerge from a year of a dire COVID pandemic and considerable economic adventure, bordering on depression. A small number of NDAL Franchise clubs continue to play each month. We expect only modest recovery in 2021.

But we are determined to treat ourselves to a bit of fun and recreation where-ever we might find it. And we face the coming year with hope and optimism.


The “National” Dog Agility League will likely be rebranded as the “International” Dog Agility League in 2021. The IDAL will be uniquely positioned to conduct virtual competitions between teams around the world in a unique world championship format fitted to our times (for example, this is the ideal “social distancing” approach to dog agility competition.

New Team Member

We have invited Melissa Wallace to join the IDAL team as Teams Liaison and Director of Marketing. As Liaison between team captains Melissa will actively consult with the clubs who, as our Board of Governors, ultimately will make decisions that determine how league competition will be conducted. By extension, Melissa will direct marketing efforts and introduce league play to potential new clubs.

Payment Processing

At the end of January, 2021 we will effectively close down our current payment processing system at While we contemplate a new (possibly automated) payment processing system we will transition exclusively to a PayPal system of payment. We will make official announcement of the target PayPal address before league play begins in February, 2021.
