This article is concerning how to teach the Eurasier to jump for agility. We are often asked, “What number of jumps is best to start with?” You can’t ever have too many solo jumps to learn agility. A suitable starting place is four jumps. This is the least count of jumps that we recommend.
How to Teach a Eurasier to jump: Begin with 4
You can teach a Eurasier a number of exercises, drills, and skills with four jumps. Four jumps will let you develop on a short jump chute or jump grid. You can practice on a “box” with your jumps and work on 270 degree jumps, collection, and handling. You can teach your Eurasier jumping left and right. You could be out of the box and send your Eurasier or you can handle from the inside of the box. Your jumps could be setup in a lateral line, so you can practice serpentines and threadles.
Teach the Eurasier 8 Jumps
Take the next step and get 8 jumps. Now you can setup two boxes with 1 starter jump. You’ve now increased your drills that you can try with your Eurasier. Your jump grids can be of typical size and quantity of jumps. You can also position the jumps in a circle with the jump bars perpendicular to the circle or on the circumference of the circle. This setup also enables you to develop a variety of skills.
Teach a Eurasier Double and Triple Jumps
Your next step is a double jump and a triple jump. You can chain 2 or three single jumps together to make your expanded jump, but having double and triple jumps in your course work is extremely beneficial to work on. We’ve seen many Eurasiers run a perfect course and the last obstacle is a triple and the Eurasier is not prepared to do it, and bang, down comes the bar.Don’t forget to check out these other articles about Eurasiers.
