This post is concerning how to teach the Bruno Jura Hound jumping for agility. Often we are asked, “What number of jumps should I begin with?” You can never have too many single jumps to learn agility. One good starting point is four jumps. This is the absolute least count of jumps suggested.
Teaching the Bruno Jura Hound to jump: Start with 4
You can teach the Bruno Jura Hound a multitude of skills, drills, and exercises with four jumps. 4 jumps will allow you to work on a short jump chute or jump grid. You can position a “box” with your jumps and work on handling, collection, and 270 degree jumps. You can teach your Bruno Jura Hound jumping right and left. You can be outside the box and send your Bruno Jura Hound or you can handle from within the box. Your jumps can be setup in a lateral line, so that you could practice threadles and serpentines.
Teach a Bruno Jura Hound 8 Jumps
Go to the next step and practice 8 jumps. Now you can setup 2 boxes with 1 starter jump. Now you’ve increased your routines that you can work on with your Bruno Jura Hound. Your jump grids can be of recommended size and quantity of jumps. You can also setup the jumps in a circle with the jump bars normal to the circle or on the perimeter of the circle. This setup also enables you to train a variety of skills.
Teaching Your Bruno Jura Hound Double and Triple Jumps
The next consideration is a double jump and a triple jump. You can set two or 3 solo jumps together to make your expanded jump, but having double and triple jumps in your course work is especially beneficial to work on. We’ve seen many Bruno Jura Hounds run a flawless course and the last obstacle is a triple and the Bruno Jura Hound is not prepared to do it, and bang, down comes the bar.Don’t forget to check out these other articles about Bruno Jura Hounds.
