    Hi Jenn. Now that Mickey is 10 months, I want to start jump training and I’d like to do it right. I don’t have any experience at this. Here is a drill that Katy suggested I do. Thanks so much for the other feedback!

      Spot on perfect! Gold star! Don’t be afraid to talk a little. Just some praise if needed. I don’t want you to feel like robot 😉 I’d love to see video going the other direction too.

      Here is a short sample video of my dog at her first jumping session for reference: https://youtu.be/1S15Lk6EXl4

      • billruth100@yahoo.com says:

        Thanks! I will do a video of both directions. I’m curious as to what to do next and when we should start the next phase?

        • Jennifer Crank says:

          You are definitely ready for the next steps. Do you happen to have Linda Mecklenburg ‘Mastering Jumping Skills’ book? Maybe Katy can lend it to you 😉

          The next step is going to be introducing 4 new positions to Mickey at a single jump. The video below demonstrates 6 different approaches to a jump that I encourage all dogs to be familiar with. You have already done the first 2.

          Approach 1 – Handler on the plane of the jump – dog circling clockwise
          Approach 2 – Handler on the plane of the jump – dog circling counter clockwise
          Approach 3 – Handler in front of left wing – dog circling counter clockwise with makes for frontside jumping effort
          Approach 4 – Handler in front of left wing – dog circling clockwise which makes for backside jumping effort
          Approach 5 – Handler in front of right wing – dog circling counter clockwise which make for a backside jumping effort
          Approach 6 – Handler in front of right wing – dog circling clockwise which makes for frontside jumping effort

            Hi Jenn:

            We have been working on the exercise that you posted for us. I have been working in small sessions. One station and one direction at a time This video is a short compilation of all of it taken today. Would love to hear your thoughts and what we should do better or next?

            Thanks! Bill

          • Jennifer Crank says:

            Excellent! These look great. Of the six efforts, the front side turn to his left was the weakest. Nothing to be worried about but make sure to do that position a bit more than the others. He got better each rep but was wanting to shape that turn when he didn’t do the with the same turn to his right.

            Were these done at 16″ (assuming that is his competition jump height)? If not, the next step is to work them all up to full height.

          • billruth100@yahoo.com says:

            We did them at 12”. He is big but very lanky and puppyish. Do you think he is ready for 16” as long as we keep our sessions short?

          • Jennifer Crank says:

            From what I see in these videos, yes, I would go up to 16”. Remind me again how old he is??

          • billruth100@yahoo.com says:

            He is 10 months

          • Jennifer Crank says:

            Yep. Go ahead and work up to 16″.

    Hi Jenn. So I’m new to this new format and class and I’m unsure how it works and what I should be doing. I guess I’m used to a “Do This” and submit for review lol. Sorry if I’m being dumb

    • jlavalley@comcast.net says:

      I’m not Jenn….but I say YES take that approach! If it gets put up, do it and put the link in comments. Then “I” can see your boy too!

    • Jennifer Crank says:

      You are free to do whatever you want and submit for feedback. By creating five categories I tried to cover teams at all stages in their journey. For you, no need to do the puppy stuff. Even the foundation stuff SHOULD be review. But of the additional material, pick and choose what you’d like. If you select from the predetermined drills, I like for the videos to be submitted in the comments so everyone can see and learn. But you are welcome to email me privately if you’d prefer.

      If you need help, want feedback, or need advice on something not covered In the classroom, email me at Jennifer@baddogagility.com. The classroom is to help guide those not sure of things to train on their own seeking inspiration, but the email options allows you to customize and pick my brain for a full month!!
