Teaching the Basset Fauve De Bretagne jumping: Begin with Four
You can teach a Basset Fauve De Bretagne many exercises, drills, and skills with four jumps. 4 jumps will allow you to develop on a short jump chute or jump grid. You can practice on a “box” with your jumps and practice handling, collection, and 270 degree jumps. You can teach your Basset Fauve De Bretagne jumping left and right. You could be out of the box and send your Basset Fauve De Bretagne or you can handle from the inside of the box. Your jumps could be staged in a horizontal row, so that you could practice threadles and serpentines.
