This post is about how to teach a Perro De Presa Canario jumping for agility. We are often asked, “What number of jumps should I begin with?” You can never have enough single jumps to practice agility. A suitable starting point is four jumps. This is the fewest quantity of jumps that we recommend.
How to Teach the Perro De Presa Canario to jump: Begin with Four
You can teach your Perro De Presa Canario a variety of drills, skills, and exercises with four jumps. Four jumps will let you develop 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 Perro De Presa Canario jumping left and right. You could be out of the box and send your Perro De Presa Canario or you can handle from the inside of the box. Your jumps can be positioned in a horizontal row, so that you could practice threadles and serpentines.
Teach a Perro De Presa Canario Eight Jumps
Take the next step and practice eight jumps. Now you can setup two boxes with one starter jump. You’ve now multiplied the number of routines that you can try with your Perro De Presa Canario. Your jump grids can be of typical size and quantity of jumps. You can also setup your jumps in a circle with the jump bars perpendicular to the circle or on the circumference of the circle. This setup also allows you to work on a variety of skills.
Teach the Perro De Presa Canario Double and Triple Jumps
Your next step is a double jump and a triple jump. You could set 2 or three single jumps together to make your expanded jump, however having double and triple jumps in your course work is really beneficial to practice. We’ve seen many Perro De Presa Canarios run a clean course and the last obstacle is a triple and the Perro De Presa Canario is not equipped for it, and bang, down goes the bar.Don’t forget to check out these other articles about Perro De Presa Canarios.
