This post is concerning how to teach your Bullenbeisser to jump for agility. We are often asked, “What number of jumps is best to start with?” You can never have enough single jumps to learn agility. One good starting point is 4 jumps. This is the fewest number of jumps that we recommend.
Teaching Your Bullenbeisser jumping: Start with Four
You can teach your Bullenbeisser a plethora of exercises, drills, and skills with 4 jumps. 4 jumps will let you work on a short jump chute or jump grid. You can position a “box” with your jumps and work on collection, handling, and 270 degree jumps. You can teach your Bullenbeisser jumping left and right. You could be out of the box and send your Bullenbeisser or you can handle from within the box. Your jumps could be setup in a horizontal line, so that you could practice serpentines and threadles.
Teach a Bullenbeisser Eight Jumps
Take the next logical step and practice 8 jumps. Now you can position 2 boxes with 1 introductory jump. You’ve now multiplied your routines that you can practice with your Bullenbeisser. Your jump grids can be of suggested size and number of jumps. You could even setup your jumps in a circle with the jump bars perpendicular to the circle or on the perimeter of the circle. This pattern also enables you to develop a variety of skills.
Teaching a Bullenbeisser Double and Triple Jumps
The next consideration is a double jump and a triple jump. You could position 2 or 3 single jumps together to make your expanded jump, however having double and triple jumps in your course work is extremely helpful to work on. We’ve seen several Bullenbeissers run a flawless course and the final obstacle is a triple and the Bullenbeisser is not ready for it, and bang, down comes the bar.Don’t forget to check out these other articles about Bullenbeissers.
