This article is concerning how to teach the Alano Espanol jumping for agility. We are often asked, “What number of jumps is best to begin with?” You can’t ever have enough solo jumps to learn agility. One good starting point is 4 jumps. This is the absolute minimum number of jumps recommended.
Teaching Your Alano Espanol jumping: Start with 4
You can teach the Alano Espanol many drills, skills, and exercises with 4 jumps. Four jumps will allow you to work on a short jump chute or jump grid. You can practice on a “box” with your jumps and work on collection, handling, and 270 degree jumps. You can teach your Alano Espanol jumping left and right. You could be outside the box and send your Alano Espanol or you can handle from the inside of the box. Your jumps can be positioned in a lateral line, so that you can practice serpentines and threadles.
Teach a Alano Espanol Eight Jumps
Go to the next step and develop eight jumps. Now you can setup 2 boxes with one introductory jump. Now you’ve multiplied the number of drills that you can work on with your Alano Espanol. Your jump grids can be of suggested size and number 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 allows you to work on a variety of drills.
Teach a Alano Espanol Double and Triple Jumps
Your next consideration is a double jump and a triple jump. You could chain 2 or 3 single jumps together to make your expanded jump, but having double and triple jumps in your course work is especially beneficial to work on. We’ve seen many Alano Espanols run a flawless course and the final obstacle is a triple and the Alano Espanol is not equipped to do it, and bang, down comes the bar.Don’t forget to check out these other articles about Alano Espanols.
