This blog is concerning how to teach the Alpine Dachsbracke jumping for agility. We are often asked, “How many jumps is best to begin with?” You can never have too many solo jumps to learn agility. A suitable starting place is 4 jumps. This is the absolute least quantity of jumps suggested.
Teaching the Alpine Dachsbracke to jump: Begin with 4
You can teach your Alpine Dachsbracke many exercises, skills, and drills with four 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 work on collection, handling, and 270 degree jumps. You can teach your Alpine Dachsbracke jumping left and right. You can be out of the box and send your Alpine Dachsbracke or you can handle from within the box. Your jumps can be setup in a horizontal line, so you can practice threadles and serpentines.
Teach a Alpine Dachsbracke 8 Jumps
Take the next logical step and develop eight jumps. Now you can setup 2 boxes with 1 introductory jump. You’ve now increased the number of drills that you can try with your Alpine Dachsbracke. Your jump grids can be of suggested size and number of jumps. You can also position the jumps in a circle with the jump bars perpendicular to the circle or on the perimeter of the circle. This setup also enables you to train a variety of skills.
Teach the Alpine Dachsbracke Double and Triple Jumps
Your next consideration is a double jump and a triple jump. You could position 2 or three single jumps together to make your expanded jump, however having double and triple jumps in your course work is especially helpful to work on. We’ve seen several Alpine Dachsbrackes run a perfect course and the last obstacle is a triple and the Alpine Dachsbracke is not prepared for it, and bang, down comes the bar.Don’t forget to check out these other articles about Alpine Dachsbrackes.
