GREAT BEGINNINGS follows the development of four English Pointer littermates through the critical first year. This DVD was filmed to replace volume one of the DVD collection to incorporate the newer clicker training method. 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 the dog correctly from the beginning is far better than trying to fix problems later. In this DVD George guides the viewer through proven methods of developing an enthusiastic dog who responds eagerly to new training with an open mind for learning. Great Beginnings presents a complete and logical program of yard work and field work.
Great Beginnings incorporates clicker training and positive reinforcement with improved methods of e-collar and low level stimulation introduction not covered in the DVD Library Collection of Volumes 1 through 4. George’s revolutionary techniques have been adopted by branches of the military as well as by trainers and owners in the world of hunting dogs. The Great Beginnings DVD along with the DVD Library Collection Volumes 1 through 4 will guide owners with a complete training program from puppy through a polished finished gun dog.
