This post is about how to teach a Cesky Fousek to jump for agility. Often we are asked, “How many jumps is best to begin with?” You can never have enough single jumps to practice agility. A suitable starting place is four jumps. This is the fewest count of jumps that we suggest.
Teaching Your Cesky Fousek jumping: Begin with Four
You can teach the Cesky Fousek a number of exercises, skills, and drills with 4 jumps. Four jumps will let you develop 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 Cesky Fousek jumping right and left. You can be outside the box and send your Cesky Fousek or you can handle from within the box. Your jumps can be setup in a lateral row, so you could practice threadles and serpentines.
Teach the Cesky Fousek Eight Jumps
Take the next logical step and get eight jumps. Now you can setup 2 boxes with 1 introductory jump. You’ve now multiplied your exercises that you can try with your Cesky Fousek. Your jump grids can be of typical size and quantity of jumps. You could also setup your jumps in a circle with the jump bars normal to the circle or on the circumference of the circle. This setup also enables you to train a variety of drills.
Teach the Cesky Fousek Double and Triple Jumps
The next level is a double jump and a triple jump. You could set two or 3 solo jumps together to make your expanded jump, but having double and triple jumps in your course work is really valuable to work on. We’ve seen several Cesky Fouseks run a flawless course and the final obstacle is a triple and the Cesky Fousek is not prepared for it, and bang, down comes the bar.Don’t forget to check out these other articles about Cesky Fouseks.
