Who we are

Rossella Di Palma

Grows up among books, dogs, horses and other animals, never imagining that, one day, she would have been on the other side of the fence. After graduating (master level degree) in English Language and Literature and after a fellowship at Mount Holyoke College (USA), she started writing (and taking pics!) for dogs and shooting magazines. She became a professional journalist, published two books and took care of some other editorial projects and later graduated in veterinary medicine Rossella is an English Setter enthusiast and  pointing dogs are her favourites but, being terribly curious, she is always happy to watch and enjoy dogs belonging to any breeds. She thinks that interacting with dogs and “living” them is the best way to get to know these animals.  Here on Dogs and Country, trying to be bi-lingual,  she rules on the sections15060368_1254899641229667_1023842618_o-1wr  Dogs & Country and A Month on The Moor.

Emanuele Nava

Emanuele Nava was born about 30 years ago in Brianza, near Milan, but he later migrated to  the hills of Valcerrina (Monferrato, Piedmont). He took this decision in order to satisfy his passion for hounds, hare hunting and the countryside.  Hunting hare with hounds  is his lifestyle. Emanule writes for some hunting/shooting magazines and actively trains his hounds and hunts with his pack.  He also travels all around Italy to meet more hounds and hound people, in the hope to improve his knowledge. Together with Francesca Asunis, he owns the kennel affix Vicamar under which they breed Beagles and Italian Hounds. He rules on  Cavilli & Segugi (Quibbles and Hounds, a name coming from Horses (in Italian cavalli) and Hounds. His  writings, unfortunately, are available only in Italian.
Where to find Emanuele on paper: Sentieri di Caccia.


Tok Mostert

Tok is a South African Professional Hunter (PH) now living in Sweden.  He has hunted over thousands of hoofed and dangerous animals in his  own country and in  Europe but he claims  his best hunts have been those done together with his German Shortaired Pointer Flake. We are very happy to host his articles on pointing dogs training. They can be found in the section Training. His articles are available only in English.



Flavia Bullo

Studies Veterinary Medicine at the University of Milan and, being dog less at the moment, relazes herself through baking. Her recipes (cakes and desserts) can be found under the category Sweet Dreams.
