2021 John Nys Foundations Seminar

February 13th, 2020  –  Fellsmere, FL




John Nys



Working Spot









Fellsmere, FL




Have a young dog that is beyond “puppy training” but not yet doing contacts or weaves?  This seminar is for YOU!  Pre-requites are a start line stay (ideally), and a dog that knows to go between jump uprights (doesn’t matter what height you want) and knows tunnels.  Focus will be on the dog reading your sending versus turning cues. Helping your dog read acceleration versus deceleration cues.  Execution of blind crosses, front crosses and rear crosses will also be addressed.  For the more experienced pups some “fancy stuff” will be added in!
