This blog is concerning how to teach the Doberman Pinscher jumping for agility. We are often asked, “What number of jumps should I start with?” You can’t ever have too many single jumps to teach agility. A suitable starting place is four jumps. This is the absolute least quantity of jumps suggested.
Teaching Your Doberman Pinscher to jump: Begin with Four
You can teach the Doberman Pinscher many drills, skills, and exercises with four jumps. 4 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 Doberman Pinscher jumping left and right. You can be out of the box and send your Doberman Pinscher or you can handle from the inside of the box. Your jumps can be setup in a lateral line, so that you can practice threadles and serpentines.
Teach Your Doberman Pinscher Eight Jumps
Go to the next logical step and get eight jumps. Now you can setup two boxes with one starter jump. Now you’ve increased the number of drills that you can practice with your Doberman Pinscher. Your jump grids can be of typical size and number 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 pattern also allows you to work on a variety of skills.
Teach a Doberman Pinscher Double and Triple Jumps
The next level is a double jump and a triple jump. You can set 2 or 3 solo 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 Doberman Pinschers run a flawless course and the last obstacle is a triple and the Doberman Pinscher is not ready to do it, and bang, down comes the bar.Don’t forget to check out these other articles about Doberman Pinschers.
