This blog is concerning teaching your Indian Spitz to jump for agility. We are often asked, “What number of jumps should I start with?” You can never have enough solo jumps to practice agility. One suitable starting point is four jumps. This is the fewest number of jumps that we suggest.
Teaching Your Indian Spitz jumping: Begin with Four
You can teach a Indian Spitz a variety of exercises, drills, and skills with 4 jumps. 4 jumps will allow you to develop on a short jump chute or jump grid. You can practice on a “box” with your jumps and practice collection, handling, and 270 degree jumps. You can teach your Indian Spitz jumping left and right. You can be outside the box and send your Indian Spitz or you can handle from the inside of the box. Your jumps could be setup in a lateral line, so that you can practice threadles and serpentines.
Teach a Indian Spitz 8 Jumps
Take the next step and develop eight jumps. Now you can setup 2 boxes with one introductory jump. You’ve now increased your drills that you can practice with your Indian Spitz. Your jump grids can be of recommended size and quantity 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 enables you to develop a variety of skills.
Teaching the Indian Spitz Double and Triple Jumps
Your next level is a double jump and a triple jump. You could set two or three single jumps together to make your expanded jump, however having double and triple jumps in your course work is really helpful to work on. We’ve seen several Indian Spitzs run a perfect course and the final obstacle is a triple and the Indian Spitz is not equipped for it, and bang, down goes the bar.Don’t forget to check out these other articles about Indian Spitzs.
