Federico Cucini, born in 1995 in Colle di Val d'Elsa in the province of Siena, grew up with a passion for hunting and dogs, which was handed down to him by his father Paolo, a great dog lover and owner of the ENCI-recognised kennel of Maremma hounds of the same name: "CUCINI'S".

Since he was a child, he has always accompanied his father on wild boar hunting trips, but what he was most passionate about were training puppies and puppy hounds. Over the years this passion has turned into a real challenge. Together with his father, in fact, he has worked on the various matings and bloodlines and has managed to create excellent working and show dogs.

Today Federico leads his dogs in ENCI recognized working trials with excellent results, proclaiming 7 dogs Italian Working Champions and winning various Italian Championships SIPS, FIDASC, CPA, ANLC and many prestigious trophies. He has also qualified as an ENCI dog trainer and handler. His challenge is to continue to find new subjects, carrying on the activity of trainer and breeder, to always obtain the extraordinary results that distinguish him.

For him, the woods are his second home, walking with CRISPI, which has always accompanied him in every new adventure!
