Manuel Gudiño started training dogs in 1974 under the mentorship of Don Chucho Reyes. His first experience in the competition ring was handling Rough Collies, and by 1981 he was showing in obedience with a Doberman, San Mateo’s Blonda P.U., T.T., earning the first Utility Dog Title on a Doberman in Mexico.
In 1982, Manuel finished the required education towards his Veterinarian degree and practiced intermittently for the next 10 years in Mexico.
In 1993, Manuel went on to become a licensed judge in Mexico for obedience and temperament testing, followed by earning his license in 2004 for protection dog.
During the next 10 years, Manuel wrote training and technical articles for the FCM Federación Canófila Mexicana (Mexican Kennel Club) official magazine, “Perros Pura Sangre”. The FCM is the Mexican equivalent to the AKC here in the United States. In fact, FCM is affiliated with the AKC and to FCI (Federation Cynologique Internationale).

Additionally in Mexico, he put titles on over 40 dogs in obedience, and sported in French Ring, Hunters and Schutzhund.
