This article is concerning how to teach the Blue Paul Terrier to jump for agility. Often we are asked, “What number of jumps should I begin with?” You can’t ever have enough single jumps to practice agility. One good starting point is 4 jumps. This is the minimum count of jumps that we recommend.
How to Teach a Blue Paul Terrier jumping: Begin with 4
You can teach the Blue Paul Terrier many exercises, drills, and skills with four jumps. 4 jumps will let you develop on a short jump chute or jump grid. You can setup a “box” with your jumps and work on collection, handling, and 270 degree jumps. You can teach your Blue Paul Terrier jumping right and left. You could be outside the box and send your Blue Paul Terrier or you can handle from within the box. Your jumps can be positioned in a horizontal row, so you can practice threadles and serpentines.
Teach Your Blue Paul Terrier 8 Jumps
Take the next logical step and work on eight jumps. Now you can position 2 boxes with 1 introductory jump. You’ve now multiplied the number of exercises that you can practice with your Blue Paul Terrier. Your jump grids can be of recommended size and quantity of jumps. You could even setup your jumps in a circle with the jump bars normal to the circle or on the circumference of the circle. This setup also allows you to train a variety of drills.
Teaching a Blue Paul Terrier Double and Triple Jumps
The next consideration is a double jump and a triple jump. You can position 2 or three single jumps together to make your expanded jump, however having double and triple jumps in your course work is really valuable to work on. We’ve seen several Blue Paul Terriers run a flawless course and the final obstacle is a triple and the Blue Paul Terrier is not equipped for it, and bang, down comes the bar.Don’t forget to check out these other articles about Blue Paul Terriers.
