Teach Your Sakhalin Husky to Jump for AgilityThis blog is about how to teach your Sakhalin Husky to jump for agility. Often we are asked, “What number of jumps should I begin with?” You can never have too many solo jumps to practice agility. A good starting point is 4 jumps. This is the fewest quantity of jumps suggested.

How to Teach the Sakhalin Husky to jump: Start with 4

You can teach your Sakhalin Husky a variety of drills, skills, and exercises with four jumps. Four jumps will let you develop on a short jump chute or jump grid. You can setup a “box” with your jumps and practice 270 degree jumps, collection, and handling. You can teach your Sakhalin Husky jumping right and left. You could be outside the box and send your Sakhalin Husky or you can handle from the inside of the box. Your jumps can be staged in a lateral line, so you could practice threadles and serpentines.

Teach the Sakhalin Husky Eight Jumps

Take the next logical step and develop eight jumps. Now you can setup 2 boxes with 1 starter jump. You’ve now multiplied your routines that you can try with your Sakhalin Husky. Your jump grids can be of typical size and quantity of jumps. You could also setup the jumps in a circle with the jump bars perpendicular to the circle or on the circumference of the circle. This setup also enables you to work on a variety of skills.

Teach the Sakhalin Husky Double and Triple Jumps

Your next consideration is a double jump and a triple jump. You could position 2 or three solo jumps together to make your expanded jump, but having double and triple jumps in your course work is really beneficial to practice. We’ve seen many Sakhalin Huskys run a clean course and the final obstacle is a triple and the Sakhalin Husky is not prepared to do it, and bang, down comes the bar.
