This post is concerning teaching your Galgo Espanol jumping for agility. We are often asked, “How many jumps should I start with?” You can never have enough solo jumps to practice agility. A suitable starting point is four jumps. This is the absolute fewest quantity of jumps recommended.
How to Teach a Galgo Espanol jumping: Start with 4
You can teach a Galgo Espanol a number of skills, drills, and exercises with four jumps. 4 jumps will let you develop on a short jump chute or jump grid. You can position a “box” with your jumps and work on collection, handling, and 270 degree jumps. You can teach your Galgo Espanol jumping right and left. You can be outside the box and send your Galgo Espanol or you can handle from the inside of the box. Your jumps could be setup in a lateral line, so that you could practice threadles and serpentines.
Teach Your Galgo Espanol Eight Jumps
Take the next logical step and develop 8 jumps. Now you can setup two boxes with 1 introductory jump. You’ve now increased the number of routines that you can work on with your Galgo Espanol. Your jump grids can be of typical size and number of jumps. You can also 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 work on a variety of drills.
Teaching Your Galgo Espanol Double and Triple Jumps
Your next consideration is a double jump and a triple jump. You can position 2 or three single jumps together to make your expanded jump, but having double and triple jumps in your course work is extremely beneficial to work on. We’ve seen many Galgo Espanols run a flawless course and the last obstacle is a triple and the Galgo Espanol is not ready for it, and bang, down goes the bar.Don’t forget to check out these other articles about Galgo Espanols.
