This post is about how to teach the Dogue De Bordeaux to jump for agility. We are often asked, “How many jumps should I begin with?” You can’t ever have too many single jumps to learn agility. One good starting place is four jumps. This is the minimum number of jumps that we suggest.
How to Teach the Dogue De Bordeaux to jump: Begin with 4
You can teach a Dogue De Bordeaux 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 position a “box” with your jumps and practice collection, handling, and 270 degree jumps. You can teach your Dogue De Bordeaux jumping left and right. You could be out of the box and send your Dogue De Bordeaux or you can handle from the inside of the box. Your jumps could be setup in a horizontal line, so you can practice threadles and serpentines.
Teach the Dogue De Bordeaux Eight Jumps
Go to the next logical step and practice 8 jumps. Now you can setup 2 boxes with one starter jump. Now you’ve multiplied your exercises that you can try with your Dogue De Bordeaux. Your jump grids can be of recommended size and number of jumps. You can even setup the jumps in a circle with the jump bars perpendicular to the circle or on the circumference of the circle. This pattern also enables you to work on a variety of drills.
Teaching Your Dogue De Bordeaux Double and Triple Jumps
Your next level is a double jump and a triple jump. You could chain two or 3 single jumps together to make your expanded jump, but having double and triple jumps in your course work is especially helpful to practice. We’ve seen several Dogue De Bordeauxs run a perfect course and the final obstacle is a triple and the Dogue De Bordeaux is not equipped for it, and bang, down comes the bar.Don’t forget to check out these other articles about Dogue De Bordeauxs.
