Teach Your Small Greek Domestic Dog to Jump for AgilityThis blog is concerning how to teach your Small Greek Domestic Dog jumping for agility. We are often asked, “How many jumps is best to begin with?” You can never have enough single jumps to practice agility. One suitable starting point is four jumps. This is the absolute least count of jumps that we suggest.

Teaching Your Small Greek Domestic Dog to jump: Start with Four

You can teach your Small Greek Domestic Dog many exercises, skills, and drills with four jumps. Four jumps will allow you to develop 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 Small Greek Domestic Dog jumping left and right. You can be outside the box and send your Small Greek Domestic Dog or you can handle from the inside of the box. Your jumps could be staged in a horizontal row, so you can practice serpentines and threadles.

Teach a Small Greek Domestic Dog 8 Jumps

Go to the next step and practice eight jumps. Now you can setup two boxes with one introductory jump. Now you’ve increased the number of drills that you can work on with your Small Greek Domestic Dog. Your jump grids can be of recommended size and quantity of jumps. You could even setup 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 develop a variety of drills.

Teaching Your Small Greek Domestic Dog Double and Triple Jumps

Your next step is a double jump and a triple jump. You can chain 2 or 3 single jumps together to make your expanded jump, but having double and triple jumps in your course work is really valuable to work on. We’ve seen several Small Greek Domestic Dogs run a perfect course and the last obstacle is a triple and the Small Greek Domestic Dog is not prepared for it, and bang, down comes the bar.
