I have been living with dogs all my life. I started in the world of dog shows at age of 17, when I bought my first Afghan Hound. From that moment I got involved more and more in this hobby as breeder, exhibitor, judge, organizer, and director. I am currently president of the Kennel Club of Uruguay, member of the FCI Show and Show Judge’s commission since 2008 and its President 2016-2023. Elected president of the Americas and Caribbean FCI Section for period 2023-2027 and was its vice-president from 2015-2023.
With Jorge Nallem we founded El Retorno kennel having great success breeding Irish Setters, Beagles, Schnauzers, Dachshund, Fox Terriers, Whippet, Greyhound and Cimarron Uruguayo. Achieved more than 160 All Breed BIS, several world CH titles and several top dog of the year all breed in 4 different countries.
I am an all-breed judge and began my career as an Irish Setter judge in 1987 and I I had the pleasure to judge and meet friends in more than 50 countries of all continents.
