Teach Your Slovensky Kopov to Jump for AgilityThis post is concerning how to teach your Slovensky Kopov jumping for agility. Often we are asked, “How many jumps is best to begin with?” You can’t ever have enough solo jumps to practice agility. A suitable starting point is four jumps. This is the minimum number of jumps that we recommend.

Teaching a Slovensky Kopov to jump: Start with Four

You can teach your Slovensky Kopov a number of drills, skills, and exercises with 4 jumps. Four jumps will allow you to work 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 Slovensky Kopov jumping right and left. You can be out of the box and send your Slovensky Kopov or you can handle from the inside of the box. Your jumps can be staged in a lateral line, so that you can practice serpentines and threadles.

Teach the Slovensky Kopov 8 Jumps

Go to the next step and develop eight jumps. Now you can setup 2 boxes with 1 starter jump. Now you’ve increased your drills that you can practice with your Slovensky Kopov. Your jump grids can be of suggested size and quantity of jumps. You could even position the jumps in a circle with the jump bars perpendicular to the circle or on the perimeter of the circle. This setup also allows you to train a variety of drills.

Teach a Slovensky Kopov Double and Triple Jumps

Your next level is a double jump and a triple jump. You can position two or 3 single jumps together to make your expanded jump, however having double and triple jumps in your course work is extremely beneficial to work on. We’ve seen several Slovensky Kopovs run a perfect course and the last obstacle is a triple and the Slovensky Kopov is not equipped to do it, and bang, down goes the bar.
