This blog is concerning teaching the Puli to jump for agility. We are often asked, “What number of jumps is best to begin with?” You can’t ever have too many single jumps to practice agility. One suitable starting place is four jumps. This is the least count of jumps recommended.
How to Teach Your Puli to jump: Start with Four
You can teach a Puli many skills, drills, and exercises with four jumps. Four jumps will allow you to develop on a short jump chute or jump grid. You can position a “box” with your jumps and practice collection, handling, and 270 degree jumps. You can teach your Puli jumping right and left. You could be outside the box and send your Puli or you can handle from within the box. Your jumps could be setup in a horizontal row, so you could practice threadles and serpentines.
Teach the Puli Eight Jumps
Go to the next logical step and develop 8 jumps. Now you can setup 2 boxes with one starter jump. You’ve now multiplied the number of exercises that you can try with your Puli. Your jump grids can be of recommended size and number of jumps. You can even position your jumps in a circle with the jump bars normal to the circle or on the perimeter of the circle. This setup also allows you to train a variety of skills.
Teaching a Puli Double and Triple Jumps
Your next consideration is a double jump and a triple jump. You could set 2 or three single 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 many Pulis run a perfect course and the final obstacle is a triple and the Puli is not prepared for it, and bang, down goes the bar.Don’t forget to check out these other articles about Pulis.
