This blog is concerning teaching the Saarlooswolfhond jumping for agility. Often we are asked, “How many jumps is best to begin with?” You can never have too many single jumps to teach agility. One suitable starting point is 4 jumps. This is the fewest quantity of jumps that we recommend.
How to Teach Your Saarlooswolfhond jumping: Start with 4
You can teach your Saarlooswolfhond many exercises, skills, and drills with four jumps. 4 jumps will let you work on a short jump chute or jump grid. You can practice on a “box” with your jumps and practice handling, collection, and 270 degree jumps. You can teach your Saarlooswolfhond jumping left and right. You can be outside the box and send your Saarlooswolfhond or you can handle from within the box. Your jumps could be positioned in a horizontal line, so you can practice serpentines and threadles.
Teach a Saarlooswolfhond Eight Jumps
Go to the next logical step and practice 8 jumps. Now you can position two boxes with 1 introductory jump. You’ve now multiplied the number of routines that you can practice with your Saarlooswolfhond. Your jump grids can be of typical size and quantity of jumps. You could also setup your jumps in a circle with the jump bars perpendicular to the circle or on the perimeter of the circle. This setup also enables you to develop a variety of skills.
Teach the Saarlooswolfhond Double and Triple Jumps
Your next level is a double jump and a triple jump. You can set 2 or 3 single jumps together to make your expanded jump, but having double and triple jumps in your course work is really helpful to practice. We’ve seen many Saarlooswolfhonds run a perfect course and the final obstacle is a triple and the Saarlooswolfhond is not prepared for it, and bang, down goes the bar.Don’t forget to check out these other articles about Saarlooswolfhonds.
