Conditioning: Duffle Jump Joys

Duffle jumps can be used in an evenly spaced row. You may use them at your dogs’ jump height or lower and send them up the row of jumps and back. Rows of jumps teach your dog to collect and land efficiently to be ready for take-off again. If your dog knows its’ take-off point, it’s less likely to crash a bar. Change the spacing between the jumps for an added challenge! Make certain you always leave enough space for landing and take-off.  Don’t forget to reward your dog and have fun. Don’t exhaust your dog!

(another fun thing you can do with duffles – make them into a spread jump!)
