Manuel Villanueva

Professional Dog Trainer & Training Director


Manuel's career started when he was just 18 years old (32 years of experience) and he specialized in breeding Dobermans. Manuel was one of the few trainers to study under Fon Johnson, a pioneer in the dog training world, who specialized in the training of police dogs. In fact, Mr. Fon Johnson developed many of the K-9 training programs and canine psychology models that are now used throughout the country and founded the first full-service pet boarding facility in San Diego in 1950.


Manuel's extensive involvement in Police K-9 training and the high demand for his expertise has left him with limited time for private training sessions.  For this reason, training with Manuel begins at $250 minimum per session. Please see Manuel's training website Man-K9.com for price listings.
