This post is about teaching your Kunming Wolfdog to jump for agility. Often we are asked, “How many jumps is best to begin with?” You can never have too many solo jumps to learn agility. A good starting place is 4 jumps. This is the minimum number of jumps that we recommend.
How to Teach a Kunming Wolfdog jumping: Start with Four
You can teach your Kunming Wolfdog a multitude of exercises, drills, and skills with 4 jumps. 4 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 Kunming Wolfdog jumping left and right. You can be out of the box and send your Kunming Wolfdog or you can handle from the inside of the box. Your jumps can be setup in a horizontal row, so you could practice serpentines and threadles.
Teach Your Kunming Wolfdog Eight Jumps
Go to the next step and get 8 jumps. Now you can position 2 boxes with one introductory jump. Now you’ve increased the number of routines that you can practice with your Kunming Wolfdog. Your jump grids can be of recommended 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 circumference of the circle. This pattern also enables you to develop a variety of drills.
Teaching a Kunming Wolfdog Double and Triple Jumps
The next level is a double jump and a triple jump. You can position two or three solo jumps together to make your expanded jump, but having double and triple jumps in your course work is especially valuable to work on. We’ve seen many Kunming Wolfdogs run a clean course and the final obstacle is a triple and the Kunming Wolfdog is not prepared to do it, and bang, down goes the bar.Don’t forget to check out these other articles about Kunming Wolfdogs.
