Teach Your Grand Bleu De Gascogne to Jump for AgilityThis article is concerning teaching a Grand Bleu De Gascogne to jump for agility. Often we are asked, “What number of jumps should I begin with?” You can’t ever have too many solo jumps to learn agility. A good starting place is 4 jumps. This is the fewest count of jumps that we recommend.

How to Teach a Grand Bleu De Gascogne jumping: Begin with 4

You can teach a Grand Bleu De Gascogne a plethora of exercises, skills, and drills with four jumps. Four jumps will let you work on a short jump chute or jump grid. You can practice on a “box” with your jumps and practice 270 degree jumps, collection, and handling. You can teach your Grand Bleu De Gascogne jumping right and left. You can be out of the box and send your Grand Bleu De Gascogne or you can handle from within the box. Your jumps can be positioned in a lateral line, so you could practice serpentines and threadles.

Teach the Grand Bleu De Gascogne 8 Jumps

Take the next logical step and practice eight jumps. Now you can position 2 boxes with one starter jump. You’ve now multiplied the number of drills that you can try with your Grand Bleu De Gascogne. Your jump grids can be of suggested size and number of jumps. You can even position the 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 work on a variety of skills.

Teaching Your Grand Bleu De Gascogne Double and Triple Jumps

Your next consideration is a double jump and a triple jump. You could position two or three single jumps together to make your expanded jump, however having double and triple jumps in your course work is really helpful to work on. We’ve seen many Grand Bleu De Gascognes run a clean course and the final obstacle is a triple and the Grand Bleu De Gascogne is not prepared for it, and bang, down comes the bar.
