Dominique De Vito
Dominique De Vito began her pet publishing career at the American Kennel Club, where she was an editor for their magazine, the AKC Gazette. She went from magazine to book publishing, where she was publisher for Howell Book House (now part of Wiley), as well as TFH Publications. Dominique created the best-selling "Happy Healthy Pet" series for Howell, published many of the pet books in the "For Dummies" series, and developed TFH Publications' "Terranova" series - the first to include a DVD with training and health care advice. Now a freelance writer and editorial consultant, Dominique and her family own the Hudson-Chatham Winery in the northern Hudson Valley. You can learn more about the winery at www.hudson-chathamwinery.com. The De Vito family now includes just one dog, their Dalmatian, Cinderella. Their beloved Dalmatian, Chief, passed away this summer at the age of 13.
