Using jump grids to affect stride

Views: 2049

Jump grids are a great agility training tool with a range of uses, particularly in relation to helping the dog to manage his stride. Having perfected the 'wait' and getting the dog to head for a treat as a reward, you introduce one jump, then add another, one at a time, up to a line of jumps in a row.

The positioning of the jumps, to begin with, needs to be straight, with a distance between them appropriate for the dog to 'bounce' between them rather than take a few strides. This is about 6ft for a collie sized dog, but may be longer or shorter for different sizes or abilities.

Marianne Tembey from Patchwork Training explains this in action and offers some useful tips.
