Dedicated to the preservation of herding breeds

International Herding Dog Association was incorporated in 2017 to register, preserve the pedigree, and promote the activity of the Australian Shepherd and its size varieties as well as the Border Collie, the Australian Cattle Dog and the Shetland Sheepdog. IHDA is a progressive registry in the world of herding breeds through our dedication to professionalism and prompt services with a completely documented and accurate registry and recording database.

IHDA will encourage the responsible breeding of pedigreed herding breeds to preserve the distinct characteristics of the individual herding breeds, to ensure the continuation of predictable physical and behavioral traits for future generations.  IHDA is a positive, friendly, helpful, and non-political herding dog association.
