The canine-human symbiosis is at its best when all 6 legs are moving.  All the benefits we claim to have in living with a dog are in the context of a balanced life.

RUXY is a JRT-Fox Terrier mix. She craves for rugged terrain and gnarly trails just as any mountain biker does. In 2016 , as she turned 4 years old , she transitioned to raw and organic diet – now she is sexier and energetic than ever. Ruxy is single and ready for a relationship and reproduction.

RONALD is a runner-biker mix. He is a Certified Dog Trainer of IPDTA-Canada and a member of Wolf Park (North American Wildlife Park Foundation) Indiana, USA . He has authored 3 books ; Mag Aso Ay Di Biro , Nanaginip Ba Ang Aso , and Dog-Life Balance. He is a resource speaker on Dog Behavior in Universities , government agencies, and other organizations around the Philippines since 2005.

His education also includes a Bachelor’s degree in Music at PBTS-Baguio and graduate studies at the Asian Theological Seminary in Quezon City.

As of September 2018 , he is the Guinness World Record holder for the World’s Largest Dog Photoshoot, along with Ezydog Philippines. 

His family and  close friends call him Onayd.  He is happily married and is blessed with 5 wonderful children. Onayd is a sinner saved by grace.

Inspired by the overwhelming response to the first book Mag Aso Ay D Biro , we decided to write and publish a new work in 2008 Nananaginip Ba Ang Aso? Then the disturbing conflict in the dog community prompted Onayd to work on another piece in 2014, discussing not only issues about dogs but also the behaviors of owners – The Dog-Life Balanced Ownership.



I love this book!
I’ve been looking for a book about taking care of “Bantay” in Filipino setting/culture……. Very informative, very helpful and straight to the point. It’s one
book I always recommend to my Filipinofriends who have dogs at home or are
planning to have one.

A must-read for Pinoy dog owners, and even for people still contemplating upon adopting a dog. It covers the basics, from what to first do when you bring home a new puppy, to what kind of quality food to give your beloved Bantay, to how much time should be spent exercising your pet. But it goes further than that, explaining common dog owner’s complaints like digging, howling, furniture chewing, and leg humping. Mr. Lumbao places great emphasis on the owner’s responsibility and commitment throughout a dog’s lifetime, a welcome sentiment in a society where abandonment of aged dogs still comes as no surprise. This book is not simply a how-to manual, but a beautiful explanation in Pinoy layman’s terms on building a relationship based on positivity, trust and understanding

The canine world is a much diversified subject. In terms of business, it Is a multi•million industry. In the field of training, it Is a never ending learning process. But whether you are looking at it from the point of view of a trainer, groomer, breeder, or plain dog lover, there’s no better way to enjoy and understand our canine companion than learning from those who’ve “been there, done that.”
For the new dog owner, every bit of information helps. Thanks to people like Onayd Lumbao who took the time to write their valuable experience and research for the benefit of the next generation.

I have spent 32 years of my life as a government veterinarian. In all those years, I had experienced In my small animal practice, read in some literatures and shared stories with my colleagues in the profession as well as my clients’ wonderful stories about dogs. However, after reading this book, I was amazed because I still learned a lot. Many experiences came along these years, but with the book many things which are commonly asked for, which I have to admit I have to answer indirectly or have to change the topic for I don’t know exactly the answers, the book Nananagi nip Ba Ang Aso gave me the enlightenment.”
This book is a must read by all dog and pet lovers, fresh graduates of animal science and veterinarians, as well as parents who are giving their children a chance to own a dog. To some extent, this book will give the answers to questions which we may not find elsewhere:’
