Teach Your East Siberian Laika Jumping for Agility

Teach Your East Siberian Laika to Jump for AgilityThis blog is concerning teaching your East Siberian Laika jumping for agility. Often we are asked, “What number of jumps is best to start with?” You can’t ever have enough single jumps to teach agility. A suitable starting point is 4 jumps. This is the absolute least quantity of jumps that we recommend.

Teaching the East Siberian Laika jumping: Start with Four

You can teach a East Siberian Laika many skills, drills, and exercises with 4 jumps. 4 jumps will let you work on a short jump chute or jump grid. You can practice on a “box” with your jumps and work on 270 degree jumps, collection, and handling. You can teach your East Siberian Laika jumping left and right. You can be out of the box and send your East Siberian Laika or you can handle from within the box. Your jumps could be staged in a horizontal line, so you could practice serpentines and threadles.

Teach the East Siberian Laika Eight Jumps

Go to the next step and develop eight jumps. Now you can setup two boxes with 1 starter jump. Now you’ve increased your routines that you can try with your East Siberian Laika. Your jump grids can be of typical size and number of jumps. You can even setup your jumps in a circle with the jump bars perpendicular to the circle or on the circumference of the circle. This setup also allows you to work on a variety of drills.

Teach Your East Siberian Laika Double and Triple Jumps

The next step is a double jump and a triple jump. You can set 2 or three single jumps together to make your expanded jump, but having double and triple jumps in your course work is especially helpful to practice. We’ve seen several East Siberian Laikas run a clean course and the final obstacle is a triple and the East Siberian Laika is not ready for it, and bang, down comes the bar.
