Teach Your Griffon Fauve De Bretagne to Jump for AgilityThis blog is concerning how to teach a Griffon Fauve De Bretagne jumping for agility. We are often asked, “How many jumps should I start with?” You can never have too many solo jumps to learn agility. A good starting point is four jumps. This is the fewest quantity of jumps that we suggest.

Teaching the Griffon Fauve De Bretagne jumping: Begin with 4

You can teach a Griffon Fauve De Bretagne many exercises, drills, and skills 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 work on collection, handling, and 270 degree jumps. You can teach your Griffon Fauve De Bretagne jumping right and left. You could be outside the box and send your Griffon Fauve De Bretagne or you can handle from the inside of the box. Your jumps can be positioned in a lateral line, so that you can practice serpentines and threadles.

Teach Your Griffon Fauve De Bretagne Eight Jumps

Take the next logical step and practice 8 jumps. Now you can setup two boxes with 1 introductory jump. Now you’ve increased your exercises that you can try with your Griffon Fauve De Bretagne. Your jump grids can be of typical size and number of jumps. You could even position the jumps in a circle with the jump bars normal to the circle or on the circumference of the circle. This setup also allows you to train a variety of skills.

Teaching a Griffon Fauve De Bretagne Double and Triple Jumps

The next step 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 extremely valuable to practice. We’ve seen several Griffon Fauve De Bretagnes run a clean course and the last obstacle is a triple and the Griffon Fauve De Bretagne is not equipped for it, and bang, down comes the bar.
