Out Story

Started by Dr. Abel Manalo as a dog breeding hobby in 1996 while he was still studying veterinary medicine at the University of the Philippines in Los Baños (UPLB), under the Philippine Canine Club, Inc. (PCCI) kennel name "ACME" and registered in July 31, 2007 as a business named Manalo Pet Shop, MANALO K9 slowly evolved into an international company providing world-class working K9 teams and Superdogs all over the Philippines, in Iraq, Afghanistan, Lebanon, and the USA.

Manalo K9 also provides quality dog training for clients - in obedience, protection, and other specialized training disciplines.

In 2010, the company also launched their consumer products brand "Superdog", starting with Superdog Soap and Superdog Shampoo & Conditioner Bar, and "SuperDoc" for dog handlers/owners later on in 2012. 

Manalo K9 received various awards from the private and government sectors for our work these past several years, and continues to grow, innovate, and excel. 

Our Core Idealogy

Our Core Ideology defines who we are and what we do.  It is a guidepost in all our decisions, business strategies and policies, for our people to be working united and synergistically.  

We exist as a company because we can do many things together that separate individuals cannot.  

We are a dog company, and we produce and develop Superdogs, but it is humans that are the focus of our endeavors and it is they who are the reason we produce and develop these excellent dogs.  

Our clients, the public, our employees, our stakeholders – they are important and we exist because of them.  

We are a company that is beyond profit, and though we know that profit is important to keep us growing, we understand that profit follows a great company with good service and good products.

we save lives by our work and value life, and we do not exclude our own by practicing unhealthy vices.
