This blog is about how to teach a Rampur Greyhound to jump for agility. We are often asked, “What number of jumps should I begin with?” You can’t ever have too many solo jumps to learn agility. One good starting point is four jumps. This is the fewest quantity of jumps recommended.
How to Teach the Rampur Greyhound jumping: Begin with Four
You can teach the Rampur Greyhound a number of exercises, drills, and skills with four jumps. 4 jumps will allow you to work on a short jump chute or jump grid. You can setup a “box” with your jumps and practice handling, collection, and 270 degree jumps. You can teach your Rampur Greyhound jumping right and left. You can be out of the box and send your Rampur Greyhound or you can handle from within the box. Your jumps could be staged in a horizontal row, so that you could practice threadles and serpentines.
Teach Your Rampur Greyhound Eight Jumps
Take the next step and practice eight jumps. Now you can setup two boxes with 1 starter jump. Now you’ve increased the number of exercises that you can practice with your Rampur Greyhound. Your jump grids can be of recommended size and quantity of jumps. You can even position your jumps in a circle with the jump bars normal to the circle or on the perimeter of the circle. This pattern also enables you to develop a variety of drills.
Teaching the Rampur Greyhound Double and Triple Jumps
The next consideration is a double jump and a triple jump. You could set two or 3 solo jumps together to make your expanded jump, however having double and triple jumps in your course work is really helpful to practice. We’ve seen many Rampur Greyhounds run a clean course and the final obstacle is a triple and the Rampur Greyhound is not ready for it, and bang, down comes the bar.Don’t forget to check out these other articles about Rampur Greyhounds.
