Teach Your Siberian Husky to Jump for AgilityThis post is about teaching the Siberian Husky jumping for agility. We are often asked, “How many jumps is best to start with?” You can never have too many solo jumps to teach agility. A suitable starting point is four jumps. This is the minimum count of jumps that we suggest.

How to Teach the Siberian Husky to jump: Start with Four

You can teach the Siberian Husky many exercises, skills, and drills with four jumps. Four jumps will allow you to develop 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 Siberian Husky jumping right and left. You could be outside the box and send your Siberian Husky or you can handle from the inside of the box. Your jumps can be setup in a lateral row, so that you can practice serpentines and threadles.

Teach a Siberian Husky Eight Jumps

Go to the next logical step and work on 8 jumps. Now you can setup two boxes with one starter jump. You’ve now increased your routines that you can try with your Siberian Husky. Your jump grids can be of typical size and number of jumps. You could also position your jumps in a circle with the jump bars perpendicular to the circle or on the circumference of the circle. This setup also allows you to work on a variety of skills.

Teach a Siberian Husky Double and Triple Jumps

Your next level is a double jump and a triple jump. You can chain 2 or three single 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 Siberian Huskys run a perfect course and the final obstacle is a triple and the Siberian Husky is not prepared to do it, and bang, down goes the bar.
