Dogs In HD: Our Team. Simone Burani, Karyna Zaslavska, Mailo.

Simone Burani is a dog behaviourist and self-publishing author. His first book is “Before You Get a Dog” (2017).


He first entered the dog’s world in June 2008 when, shortly after moving to London from Italy, he decided to get a dog. It was an impulsive choice and, because of this reason, he didn’t have the best start as a dog owner.

However, it hadn’t become an excuse for inaction and in order to improve his life and the relationship with his young dog, he started learning as much as possible about dogs and applied the information acquired on himself and the dog with outstanding results.

From this point forward, he has discovered a new talent in his approach towards dogs and turned into a professional dog carer while acquiring qualifications and diplomas in “Canine Studies” and “Canine Behaviour & Psychology”.

During his life in the UK, he has also offered consultations to people who wanted to improve the situation with their pets and understand them better, on the side of offering dog care services.


“Before You Get A Dog” is a fruit of collaboration with his wife Karyna who turned a messy manuscript into a fully developed book. 


In 2018, Simone and Karyna launched their website “Dogs in HD” (DogsInHoomanDefinition) where they share opinions, Simone’s knowledge of dogs and the concept of simple but consistent approach towards dogs and you own behaviour.

Karyna Zaslavska is a writing contributor to this website, bringing her unique perspective and interest in psychology and self-improvement into the field of all things dogs and life with them.

She graduated from Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design (London, UK) in 2014 with a BA (Hons) in Fine Arts. Her first field of study was psychology at KNLU (Kyiv, Ukraine).

Her first dog, a Pit Bull type boy, unexpectedly arrived into her life when she was six. Her father decided to adopt the puppy and take him home because his former owners could not keep him any longer due to health issues in the family. Little Karyna and her four-pawed friend were destined to grow up and share many happy years together.

Karyna is interested in analyzing and reflecting on how dogs influence our life and hold potential to help us become better people.
