Teaching the Tennessee Treeing Brindle Jumping for Agility

Teach Your Tennessee Treeing Brindle to Jump for AgilityThis article is about teaching the Tennessee Treeing Brindle jumping for agility. We are often asked, “How many jumps is best to start with?” You can never have too many solo jumps to learn agility. A good starting point is four jumps. This is the fewest count of jumps suggested.

Teaching a Tennessee Treeing Brindle jumping: Start with Four

You can teach a Tennessee Treeing Brindle many skills, drills, and exercises with four jumps. 4 jumps will let you develop on a short jump chute or jump grid. You can setup a “box” with your jumps and work on 270 degree jumps, collection, and handling. You can teach your Tennessee Treeing Brindle jumping left and right. You could be out of the box and send your Tennessee Treeing Brindle or you can handle from within the box. Your jumps could be positioned in a horizontal row, so that you can practice serpentines and threadles.

Teach the Tennessee Treeing Brindle 8 Jumps

Take the next logical step and develop 8 jumps. Now you can position two boxes with 1 introductory jump. You’ve now multiplied the number of exercises that you can work on with your Tennessee Treeing Brindle. Your jump grids can be of typical size and quantity of jumps. You can also position the jumps in a circle with the jump bars normal to the circle or on the perimeter of the circle. This setup also allows you to work on a variety of drills.

Teach a Tennessee Treeing Brindle Double and Triple Jumps

The next consideration is a double jump and a triple jump. You could chain two or 3 single jumps together to make your expanded jump, but having double and triple jumps in your course work is especially valuable to practice. We’ve seen several Tennessee Treeing Brindles run a clean course and the last obstacle is a triple and the Tennessee Treeing Brindle is not ready to do it, and bang, down goes the bar.
