Teach Your Montenegrin Mountain Hound to Jump for AgilityThis article is concerning how to teach the Montenegrin Mountain Hound jumping for agility. We are often asked, “What number of jumps is best to begin with?” You can’t ever have too many solo jumps to practice agility. A good starting point is four jumps. This is the absolute least quantity of jumps that we recommend.

Teaching a Montenegrin Mountain Hound jumping: Begin with 4

You can teach a Montenegrin Mountain Hound many skills, drills, and exercises with four jumps. 4 jumps will allow you to develop on a short jump chute or jump grid. You can position a “box” with your jumps and practice 270 degree jumps, collection, and handling. You can teach your Montenegrin Mountain Hound jumping left and right. You could be outside the box and send your Montenegrin Mountain Hound or you can handle from the inside of the box. Your jumps could be positioned in a lateral row, so that you could practice serpentines and threadles.

Teach Your Montenegrin Mountain Hound Eight Jumps

Go to the next step and develop 8 jumps. Now you can position two boxes with 1 introductory jump. Now you’ve multiplied your drills that you can practice with your Montenegrin Mountain Hound. Your jump grids can be of suggested size and number of jumps. You could also position the jumps in a circle with the jump bars perpendicular to the circle or on the circumference of the circle. This setup also enables you to train a variety of drills.

Teach Your Montenegrin Mountain Hound Double and Triple Jumps

The next step is a double jump and a triple jump. You can position 2 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 several Montenegrin Mountain Hounds run a perfect course and the last obstacle is a triple and the Montenegrin Mountain Hound is not equipped to do it, and bang, down goes the bar.
