Teaching the Paisley Terrier Jumping for Agility

Teach Your Paisley Terrier to Jump for AgilityThis blog is concerning teaching the Paisley Terrier jumping for agility. Often we are asked, “How many jumps is best to begin with?” You can’t ever have too many solo jumps to teach agility. One suitable starting place is 4 jumps. This is the fewest quantity of jumps recommended.

How to Teach a Paisley Terrier jumping: Start with 4

You can teach the Paisley Terrier many exercises, skills, and drills with 4 jumps. Four jumps will allow you to work 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 Paisley Terrier jumping right and left. You could be outside the box and send your Paisley Terrier or you can handle from within the box. Your jumps could be setup in a lateral row, so that you could practice serpentines and threadles.

Teach a Paisley Terrier Eight Jumps

Take the next step and get 8 jumps. Now you can position 2 boxes with one starter jump. Now you’ve multiplied your routines that you can work on with your Paisley Terrier. Your jump grids can be of suggested size and number of jumps. You could also position your 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 train a variety of drills.

Teaching a Paisley Terrier Double and Triple Jumps

The next consideration is a double jump and a triple jump. You can position two or three solo jumps together to make your expanded jump, but having double and triple jumps in your course work is really beneficial to work on. We’ve seen many Paisley Terriers run a perfect course and the final obstacle is a triple and the Paisley Terrier is not equipped to do it, and bang, down comes the bar.
