Teaching a Schillerstovare To Jump for Agility

Teach Your Schillerstovare to Jump for AgilityThis blog is about how to teach the Schillerstovare to jump for agility. Often we are asked, “What number of jumps is best to start with?” You can’t ever have enough single jumps to practice agility. One good starting place is four jumps. This is the fewest quantity of jumps recommended.

How to Teach Your Schillerstovare jumping: Start with Four

You can teach the Schillerstovare a variety of skills, drills, and exercises 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 collection, handling, and 270 degree jumps. You can teach your Schillerstovare jumping right and left. You can be outside the box and send your Schillerstovare or you can handle from within the box. Your jumps could be positioned in a lateral row, so that you can practice threadles and serpentines.

Teach a Schillerstovare 8 Jumps

Go to the next step and get eight 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 Schillerstovare. Your jump grids can be of suggested size and quantity of jumps. You could also setup the jumps in a circle with the jump bars normal to the circle or on the circumference of the circle. This pattern also enables you to work on a variety of skills.

Teach a Schillerstovare Double and Triple Jumps

The next consideration is a double jump and a triple jump. You could set 2 or 3 solo jumps together to make your expanded jump, however having double and triple jumps in your course work is extremely beneficial to practice. We’ve seen several Schillerstovares run a perfect course and the last obstacle is a triple and the Schillerstovare is not ready for it, and bang, down goes the bar.
