About the Author
Edith and Johan Gallant have been involved in the dog world since 1975, and actively bred and showed Giant Schnauzers in Europe and Africa. This has included conformation showing, obedience and working trials, and judging.
In the early 1990's, as they were traveling through the southern Africa region, they became fascinated with the native African dogs, which previously they had believed as unworthy of attention as they did not come from show dogs. In becoming more familiar with these dogs, the natural dogs, they came to realize how far off track modern dogs have gone. This was the inspiration of the book, SOS Dog: The Purebred Dog Hobby Re-Examined.
