First, we showed you how to teach your dog to take tunnels in Agility, and now, in this second spectacular lesson, our very own Agility Champion Lauren Langman is back with the brilliant Blink to walk you through how to teach your dog to take jumps in Agility!
When you are working with any dog to train them to jump – or do anything at all – the most important thing is that you make it fun! Incorporating games into your dog’s everyday life and training is going to make teaching them something new SO much easier and SO much more fun!
Another vital step in working your dog over jumps is to start small. Use what you have to hand around your home – you don’t need any fancy jump equipment, so get creative! You could use a rolled-up towel or blanket, a half or full-sized foam roller, or a set of agility cones with poles on the lowest hole. Use your imagination – just make sure it’s safe for your dog!
Remember, your dog only has so many jumps in them – don’t overdo it – and make sure you are working at your dog’s skill level, whilst also being mindful of their age. For small to medium-sized dogs, foundation jump training can begin from 10 months, while larger breed dogs need more time to develop and shouldn’t start their jump training until around 12-14 months.
In this super absoluteDOGS TV episode, Lauren and Blink have all their TOP getting started tips and super secrets for YOU! So whether you are interested in getting started in the amazing sport of Agility, or you just want to bring an extra level of joy and fun to your dog’s daily training or fitness plans, these tunnel games have got everything you need to get started!
