Teach Your Porcelaine to Jump for AgilityThis blog is concerning how to teach your Porcelaine to jump for agility. We are often asked, “What number of jumps is best to start with?” You can’t ever have too many single jumps to teach agility. One suitable starting place is four jumps. This is the least count of jumps recommended.

How to Teach Your Porcelaine to jump: Start with 4

You can teach the Porcelaine a multitude of exercises, drills, and skills with four jumps. Four jumps will allow you to develop on a short jump chute or jump grid. You can position a “box” with your jumps and practice 270 degree jumps, collection, and handling. You can teach your Porcelaine jumping right and left. You could be out of the box and send your Porcelaine or you can handle from the inside of the box. Your jumps could be staged in a horizontal row, so that you can practice serpentines and threadles.

Teach the Porcelaine 8 Jumps

Take the next step and work on 8 jumps. Now you can setup two boxes with one starter jump. You’ve now multiplied your routines that you can practice with your Porcelaine. Your jump grids can be of suggested size and number of jumps. You can also position the jumps in a circle with the jump bars normal to the circle or on the circumference of the circle. This pattern also enables you to work on a variety of drills.

Teaching the Porcelaine Double and Triple Jumps

The next step is a double jump and a triple jump. You could set two or 3 solo jumps together to make your expanded jump, but having double and triple jumps in your course work is really beneficial to work on. We’ve seen many Porcelaines run a flawless course and the final obstacle is a triple and the Porcelaine is not prepared to do it, and bang, down goes the bar.
