This post is concerning teaching your Thai Bangkaew Dog to jump for agility. Often we are asked, “What number of jumps should I start with?” You can’t ever have enough single jumps to learn agility. A suitable starting point is 4 jumps. This is the fewest quantity of jumps suggested.
Teaching Your Thai Bangkaew Dog to jump: Begin with 4
You can teach your Thai Bangkaew Dog a plethora of exercises, skills, and drills with four 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 270 degree jumps, collection, and handling. You can teach your Thai Bangkaew Dog jumping left and right. You could be out of the box and send your Thai Bangkaew Dog or you can handle from the inside of the box. Your jumps could be staged in a lateral line, so you could practice serpentines and threadles.
Teach a Thai Bangkaew Dog Eight Jumps
Go to the next step and work on 8 jumps. Now you can setup two boxes with one introductory jump. Now you’ve increased your exercises that you can try with your Thai Bangkaew Dog. Your jump grids can be of suggested size and quantity of jumps. You could even setup 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 the Thai Bangkaew Dog Double and Triple Jumps
Your next level is a double jump and a triple jump. You could set 2 or three single jumps together to make your expanded jump, however having double and triple jumps in your course work is extremely beneficial to practice. We’ve seen many Thai Bangkaew Dogs run a perfect course and the last obstacle is a triple and the Thai Bangkaew Dog is not ready for it, and bang, down comes the bar.Don’t forget to check out these other articles about Thai Bangkaew Dogs.
