Teach Your Telomian To Jump for Agility

Teach Your Telomian to Jump for AgilityThis article is concerning how to teach your Telomian jumping for agility. We are often asked, “What number of jumps should I begin with?” You can’t ever have too many single jumps to teach agility. One suitable starting place is 4 jumps. This is the minimum quantity of jumps suggested.

Teaching the Telomian jumping: Start with 4

You can teach the Telomian a variety of skills, drills, and exercises with four jumps. Four jumps will let you work on a short jump chute or jump grid. You can setup a “box” with your jumps and work on 270 degree jumps, collection, and handling. You can teach your Telomian jumping left and right. You could be out of the box and send your Telomian or you can handle from within the box. Your jumps can be positioned in a lateral line, so that you could practice threadles and serpentines.

Teach the Telomian Eight Jumps

Go to the next logical step and get 8 jumps. Now you can setup two boxes with 1 introductory jump. Now you’ve increased the number of exercises that you can work on with your Telomian. Your jump grids can be of recommended size and number of jumps. You can even position the 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 drills.

Teaching Your Telomian 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, however having double and triple jumps in your course work is especially valuable to work on. We’ve seen many Telomians run a clean course and the last obstacle is a triple and the Telomian is not ready for it, and bang, down comes the bar.
