This blog is about how to teach a Pungsan Dog jumping for agility. We are often asked, “How many jumps should I begin with?” You can’t ever have too many single jumps to learn agility. One good starting place is 4 jumps. This is the minimum quantity of jumps recommended.
How to Teach the Pungsan Dog jumping: Start with Four
You can teach your Pungsan Dog many skills, drills, and exercises with 4 jumps. Four jumps will let you develop on a short jump chute or jump grid. You can setup a “box” with your jumps and practice handling, collection, and 270 degree jumps. You can teach your Pungsan Dog jumping right and left. You can be outside the box and send your Pungsan Dog or you can handle from within the box. Your jumps could be setup in a horizontal row, so you can practice threadles and serpentines.
Teach the Pungsan Dog Eight Jumps
Take the next step and practice 8 jumps. Now you can position 2 boxes with 1 introductory jump. You’ve now increased your routines that you can work on with your Pungsan Dog. Your jump grids can be of typical size and number of jumps. You could even position your jumps in a circle with the jump bars perpendicular to the circle or on the perimeter of the circle. This pattern also enables you to train a variety of skills.
Teaching a Pungsan Dog Double and Triple Jumps
Your next level is a double jump and a triple jump. You can chain 2 or three solo jumps together to make your expanded jump, but having double and triple jumps in your course work is extremely beneficial to work on. We’ve seen several Pungsan Dogs run a clean course and the final obstacle is a triple and the Pungsan Dog is not prepared for it, and bang, down goes the bar.Don’t forget to check out these other articles about Pungsan Dogs.
