Teach Your Mudhol Hound to Jump for AgilityThis article is concerning how to teach your Mudhol Hound jumping for agility. Often we are asked, “What number of jumps is best to start with?” You can never have enough solo jumps to practice agility. One good starting point is 4 jumps. This is the least quantity of jumps that we suggest.

How to Teach Your Mudhol Hound jumping: Begin with Four

You can teach a Mudhol Hound many drills, skills, and exercises with four jumps. Four jumps will let you develop on a short jump chute or jump grid. You can position a “box” with your jumps and work on handling, collection, and 270 degree jumps. You can teach your Mudhol Hound jumping left and right. You could be out of the box and send your Mudhol Hound or you can handle from the inside of the box. Your jumps can be positioned in a lateral row, so that you can practice threadles and serpentines.

Teach the Mudhol Hound Eight Jumps

Go to the next logical step and practice 8 jumps. Now you can setup two boxes with 1 introductory jump. You’ve now multiplied the number of exercises that you can try with your Mudhol Hound. Your jump grids can be of typical size and quantity of jumps. You could also setup your jumps in a circle with the jump bars perpendicular to the circle or on the circumference of the circle. This pattern also allows you to develop a variety of skills.

Teaching the Mudhol Hound Double and Triple Jumps

The next level is a double jump and a triple jump. You can set two or three solo jumps together to make your expanded jump, however having double and triple jumps in your course work is especially helpful to work on. We’ve seen several Mudhol Hounds run a flawless course and the final obstacle is a triple and the Mudhol Hound is not equipped to do it, and bang, down comes the bar.
