This blog is concerning how to teach a Cirneco Dell’Etna jumping for agility. Often we are asked, “What number of jumps should I start with?” You can never have too many single jumps to teach agility. A suitable starting place is four jumps. This is the absolute least count of jumps that we recommend.
How to Teach a Cirneco Dell’Etna jumping: Start with 4
You can teach a Cirneco Dell’Etna many exercises, drills, and skills 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 handling, collection, and 270 degree jumps. You can teach your Cirneco Dell’Etna jumping right and left. You can be outside the box and send your Cirneco Dell’Etna or you can handle from the inside of the box. Your jumps can be positioned in a horizontal line, so that you could practice serpentines and threadles.
Teach Your Cirneco Dell’Etna 8 Jumps
Take the next logical step and develop eight jumps. Now you can setup two boxes with 1 starter jump. You’ve now increased the number of drills that you can work on with your Cirneco Dell’Etna. Your jump grids can be of typical size and number of jumps. You can also position 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 skills.
Teach a Cirneco Dell’Etna Double and Triple Jumps
The next step is a double jump and a triple jump. You can set two or three single jumps together to make your expanded jump, but having double and triple jumps in your course work is really helpful to practice. We’ve seen several Cirneco Dell’Etnas run a perfect course and the final obstacle is a triple and the Cirneco Dell’Etna is not ready for it, and bang, down comes the bar.Don’t forget to check out these other articles about Cirneco Dell’Etnas.
