Great Beginnings follows the development of Edy, a female Labrador Retriever, through her first year. George Hickox demonstrates the comprehensive program that has helped thousands of dog owners in his school of "Dog Training for Owners and Their Dogs" across North America. The new approaches to clicker training and e-collar Introduction will benefit all owners and their dogs.

The first year is the time to lay the proper foundation for more advanced training. Preparing your dog correctly from the beginning is far better than trying to fix problems later.
