This post is concerning teaching the Czechoslovak Wolfdog jumping for agility. Often we are asked, “How many jumps is best to start with?” You can never have enough solo jumps to learn agility. One suitable starting place is 4 jumps. This is the absolute minimum count of jumps that we recommend.
Teaching the Czechoslovak Wolfdog to jump: Start with Four
You can teach your Czechoslovak Wolfdog a number of skills, drills, and exercises 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 collection, handling, and 270 degree jumps. You can teach your Czechoslovak Wolfdog jumping right and left. You could be outside the box and send your Czechoslovak Wolfdog or you can handle from within the box. Your jumps could be positioned in a lateral line, so you can practice threadles and serpentines.
Teach a Czechoslovak Wolfdog Eight Jumps
Take the next logical step and develop eight jumps. Now you can position 2 boxes with one introductory jump. You’ve now increased the number of exercises that you can try with your Czechoslovak Wolfdog. Your jump grids can be of typical size and quantity of jumps. You could even position 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 drills.
Teach a Czechoslovak Wolfdog Double and Triple Jumps
The next step is a double jump and a triple jump. You could position two or 3 single jumps together to make your expanded jump, however having double and triple jumps in your course work is especially valuable to practice. We’ve seen several Czechoslovak Wolfdogs run a flawless course and the last obstacle is a triple and the Czechoslovak Wolfdog is not equipped to do it, and bang, down goes the bar.Don’t forget to check out these other articles about Czechoslovak Wolfdogs.
