Teach Your Slovak Cuvac to Jump for AgilityThis blog is concerning teaching the Slovak Cuvac to jump for agility. Often we are asked, “What number of jumps is best to begin with?” You can’t ever have too many solo jumps to learn agility. One good starting place is 4 jumps. This is the absolute fewest count of jumps that we recommend.

How to Teach a Slovak Cuvac jumping: Start with 4

You can teach your Slovak Cuvac many drills, skills, and exercises with four jumps. Four jumps will let you work on a short jump chute or jump grid. You can practice on a “box” with your jumps and practice handling, collection, and 270 degree jumps. You can teach your Slovak Cuvac jumping left and right. You could be out of the box and send your Slovak Cuvac or you can handle from within the box. Your jumps can be positioned in a lateral line, so you can practice serpentines and threadles.

Teach the Slovak Cuvac Eight Jumps

Go to the next step and practice eight jumps. Now you can setup 2 boxes with 1 starter jump. You’ve now multiplied the number of exercises that you can try with your Slovak Cuvac. Your jump grids can be of typical size and number of jumps. You could also setup your 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 a Slovak Cuvac Double and Triple Jumps

Your next consideration is a double jump and a triple jump. You can chain 2 or 3 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 several Slovak Cuvacs run a clean course and the last obstacle is a triple and the Slovak Cuvac is not ready to do it, and bang, down comes the bar.
