This blog is about teaching your Labrador Husky jumping for agility. Often we are asked, “How many jumps is best to begin with?” You can’t ever have enough solo jumps to practice agility. One good starting point is four jumps. This is the minimum number of jumps recommended.
Teaching the Labrador Husky to jump: Start with Four
You can teach your Labrador Husky a plethora of exercises, skills, and drills with four jumps. 4 jumps will allow you to develop on a short jump chute or jump grid. You can setup a “box” with your jumps and practice collection, handling, and 270 degree jumps. You can teach your Labrador Husky jumping left and right. You could be out of the box and send your Labrador Husky or you can handle from the inside of the box. Your jumps can be positioned in a lateral line, so that you could practice serpentines and threadles.
Teach a Labrador Husky 8 Jumps
Go to the next logical step and develop eight jumps. Now you can setup 2 boxes with 1 starter jump. Now you’ve increased the number of routines that you can work on with your Labrador Husky. Your jump grids can be of typical size and number of jumps. You could 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 allows you to work on a variety of skills.
Teach Your Labrador Husky Double and Triple Jumps
The next level is a double jump and a triple jump. You could set two or 3 solo jumps together to make your expanded jump, but having double and triple jumps in your course work is extremely beneficial to practice. We’ve seen several Labrador Huskys run a perfect course and the final obstacle is a triple and the Labrador Husky is not equipped to do it, and bang, down comes the bar.Don’t forget to check out these other articles about Labrador Huskys.
