About the Author:

David Daignault:

David Daigneault has been living a dog’s life for the last five years. That’s when the runt of a German Shepherd litter named Cody came into his life. David never suspected that so much energy, coupled with extreme stubbornness, could be wrapped up in a fur coat on four legs. David found that raising a German Shepherd from a puppy is a two-way education. Yes, the dog picks up a few tricks along the way, but the human learns so much more. David and Cody have failed obedience classes together, spent time frustrating personal dog trainers, and throughout it all discovered that most of what you need to know can be found right in your own back yard.

When not looking at the world through a German Shepherd’s eyes, David is a freelance writer plying his trade creating everything from video game scripts to whimsical love letters. In a previous life he was a television producer and journalist for more than twenty years.

David wrote ‘The Complete Guide to German Shepherds’ in the hopes that people will read it before they bring a German Shepherd puppy home. After that it’s too late.

David lives with his wife Shelley, and Cody, in Ontario, Canada.
