This post is concerning teaching the Olde English Bulldogge jumping for agility. We are often asked, “What number of jumps is best to start with?” You can never have enough single jumps to teach agility. A good starting place is 4 jumps. This is the fewest count of jumps suggested.
Teaching Your Olde English Bulldogge jumping: Begin with 4
You can teach the Olde English Bulldogge many exercises, drills, and skills with four jumps. 4 jumps will let you 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 Olde English Bulldogge jumping right and left. You could be outside the box and send your Olde English Bulldogge or you can handle from within the box. Your jumps can be setup in a lateral row, so that you can practice threadles and serpentines.
Teach the Olde English Bulldogge 8 Jumps
Go to the next logical step and practice 8 jumps. Now you can setup two boxes with 1 introductory jump. You’ve now multiplied the number of drills that you can work on with your Olde English Bulldogge. Your jump grids can be of recommended size and quantity of jumps. You can also setup the jumps in a circle with the jump bars normal to the circle or on the perimeter of the circle. This pattern also enables you to train a variety of skills.
Teach Your Olde English Bulldogge Double and Triple Jumps
Your next level is a double jump and a triple jump. You could set two or 3 single jumps together to make your expanded jump, but having double and triple jumps in your course work is especially helpful to practice. We’ve seen several Olde English Bulldogges run a perfect course and the last obstacle is a triple and the Olde English Bulldogge is not prepared for it, and bang, down goes the bar.Don’t forget to check out these other articles about Olde English Bulldogges.
