Why was IFCS created?
It hardly seems possible that more than three years have passed since our organization was first created. Many of us at that time were thinking that sports with dogs did not have their own international structure like other kinds of sports, such as those included in the Olympics. The only exception was sled-dog sport with an international federation (IFSS) and continental associations of its members. Our first steps toward creating an international sports organization had the goal of uniting efforts of national associations of different countries in integrating many kinds of dog sports into the international sports system and Olympic movement.
