Teach Your Perro De Presa Mallorquin to Jump for AgilityThis article is about teaching the Perro De Presa Mallorquin to jump for agility. We are often asked, “How many jumps is best to begin with?” You can never have enough solo jumps to teach agility. One good starting place is 4 jumps. This is the minimum number of jumps that we recommend.

How to Teach the Perro De Presa Mallorquin jumping: Begin with Four

You can teach a Perro De Presa Mallorquin many exercises, drills, and skills with 4 jumps. 4 jumps will let you develop on a short jump chute or jump grid. You can position a “box” with your jumps and work on 270 degree jumps, collection, and handling. You can teach your Perro De Presa Mallorquin jumping left and right. You could be out of the box and send your Perro De Presa Mallorquin or you can handle from the inside of the box. Your jumps could be setup in a lateral line, so that you could practice serpentines and threadles.

Teach a Perro De Presa Mallorquin Eight Jumps

Take the next logical step and practice eight jumps. Now you can setup two boxes with 1 starter jump. Now you’ve increased your routines that you can work on with your Perro De Presa Mallorquin. Your jump grids can be of suggested size and quantity of jumps. You could even setup your 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 work on a variety of skills.

Teaching Your Perro De Presa Mallorquin Double and Triple Jumps

Your next level is a double jump and a triple jump. You could chain two or three single jumps together to make your expanded jump, however having double and triple jumps in your course work is especially helpful to work on. We’ve seen many Perro De Presa Mallorquins run a flawless course and the last obstacle is a triple and the Perro De Presa Mallorquin is not equipped to do it, and bang, down comes the bar.
