This blog is about how to teach your Armenian Gampr Dog to jump for agility. We are often asked, “What number of jumps should I begin with?” You can never have too many solo jumps to practice agility. A suitable starting point is four jumps. This is the minimum count of jumps that we suggest.
How to Teach the Armenian Gampr Dog to jump: Start with 4
You can teach the Armenian Gampr Dog a multitude of drills, skills, and exercises with four jumps. Four jumps will let you work on a short jump chute or jump grid. You can practice on a “box” with your jumps and work on handling, collection, and 270 degree jumps. You can teach your Armenian Gampr Dog jumping right and left. You can be out of the box and send your Armenian Gampr Dog or you can handle from the inside of the box. Your jumps could be positioned in a lateral row, so that you could practice threadles and serpentines.
Teach a Armenian Gampr Dog Eight Jumps
Take the next step and get eight jumps. Now you can position 2 boxes with one introductory jump. Now you’ve multiplied your routines that you can practice with your Armenian Gampr Dog. Your jump grids can be of suggested size and quantity of jumps. You can also setup your jumps in a circle with the jump bars perpendicular to the circle or on the perimeter of the circle. This pattern also allows you to train a variety of drills.
Teach a Armenian Gampr Dog Double and Triple Jumps
Your next consideration is a double jump and a triple jump. You can position two or 3 solo jumps together to make your expanded jump, however having double and triple jumps in your course work is especially beneficial to work on. We’ve seen several Armenian Gampr Dogs run a flawless course and the last obstacle is a triple and the Armenian Gampr Dog is not prepared to do it, and bang, down goes the bar.Don’t forget to check out these other articles about Armenian Gampr Dogs.
