This article is concerning how to teach your Central Asian Shepherd Dog jumping for agility. We are often asked, “How many jumps should I start with?” You can never have too many solo jumps to learn agility. A suitable starting place is four jumps. This is the least number of jumps that we recommend.
How to Teach the Central Asian Shepherd Dog jumping: Start with Four
You can teach your Central Asian Shepherd Dog a plethora of drills, skills, and exercises with 4 jumps. Four jumps will allow you to develop on a short jump chute or jump grid. You can setup a “box” with your jumps and practice collection, handling, and 270 degree jumps. You can teach your Central Asian Shepherd Dog jumping left and right. You can be outside the box and send your Central Asian Shepherd Dog or you can handle from the inside of the box. Your jumps could be positioned in a lateral row, so you can practice threadles and serpentines.
Teach the Central Asian Shepherd Dog Eight Jumps
Go to the next step and develop eight jumps. Now you can setup two boxes with 1 introductory jump. Now you’ve increased your routines that you can practice with your Central Asian Shepherd Dog. Your jump grids can be of suggested size and number of jumps. You can even position 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 Central Asian Shepherd Dog Double and Triple Jumps
The next consideration is a double jump and a triple jump. You can position 2 or three solo jumps together to make your expanded jump, however having double and triple jumps in your course work is extremely valuable to practice. We’ve seen several Central Asian Shepherd Dogs run a clean course and the last obstacle is a triple and the Central Asian Shepherd Dog is not equipped for it, and bang, down comes the bar.Don’t forget to check out these other articles about Central Asian Shepherd Dogs.
