This post is about teaching the Sabueso Espanol jumping for agility. We are often asked, “How many jumps should I begin with?” You can never have enough single jumps to practice agility. A good starting place is 4 jumps. This is the absolute least number of jumps suggested.
How to Teach the Sabueso Espanol to jump: Start with 4
You can teach a Sabueso Espanol many drills, skills, and exercises with 4 jumps. Four jumps will allow you to develop on a short jump chute or jump grid. You can position a “box” with your jumps and work on handling, collection, and 270 degree jumps. You can teach your Sabueso Espanol jumping left and right. You could be outside the box and send your Sabueso Espanol or you can handle from the inside of the box. Your jumps can be staged in a lateral row, so you can practice serpentines and threadles.
Teach the Sabueso Espanol Eight Jumps
Take the next logical step and get 8 jumps. Now you can position two boxes with 1 starter jump. You’ve now increased your routines that you can try with your Sabueso Espanol. Your jump grids can be of suggested size and number of jumps. You could also position the jumps in a circle with the jump bars perpendicular to the circle or on the perimeter of the circle. This pattern also allows you to develop a variety of skills.
Teaching the Sabueso Espanol Double and Triple Jumps
The next step is a double jump and a triple jump. You could set two or three single jumps together to make your expanded jump, but having double and triple jumps in your course work is especially beneficial to work on. We’ve seen several Sabueso Espanols run a clean course and the final obstacle is a triple and the Sabueso Espanol is not ready to do it, and bang, down goes the bar.Don’t forget to check out these other articles about Sabueso Espanols.
