About me:

I have been living with dogs pure bred or not, 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 and I was President of the Uruguayan Cimarron and the Irish Setter Clubs.

Member of the FCI Show and Show Judges’commissions since 2008.

President of FCI Judges commission 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.
