    I thought we did pretty good for our first try at burpees! I’ll work on making the landing-to-down a faster/smoother transition. Any suggestions on how to keep him from creeping forward each time he jumps?

    • Coach Leslie says:

      Nice job! Increase height of the jump and that will keep him closer to the jump. You can also use a barrier on both sides of the jump to help keep him close.

    this video is to show you two things . On the down to play bow, I have noticed that she moves her back feet wide apart when we start – is that ok? And then we are working on burpees, asking for your review and suggestions.


    • Coach Leslie says:

      Give her a target for her rear paws for the play bow. She’s not too wide in the video but I can see her trying to go wider and externally rotate the rear legs as you get a deeper play bow.
      Burpees look good. Increase jump height and move the set up more to the middle of the room.

    Beginning Burpees
    Timber is a 20″ jumper. I videoed at 10″ and 12″. It seemed too easy, so wanted to make sure his form was okay before moving up the height. Thanks.

    Hi Leslie,
    Here is Sealah. We are only at 10″ here this is her first time with burpees…


    • Coach Leslie says:

      This is a great start. Increase height and speed. Work up to 16” by two inches at a time. Do 2 sets of 6 repetitions every other day. Increase height each day until you get to 16”.

  • Sandy & Karma says:

    Hi Leslie – here is our 1st attempt at burpees. Since Karma is getting back to agility now since her spay earlier this month, I thought some of these jumping strength exercises would be good for warming her jumping muscles up! Weather will allow us to get back to our outdoor lessons this week!

    I did not yet raise the bar for 2 reasons, wanted to check our form and also wanted her to start low to get back into jumping.


  • JulietW says:

    Hi Leslie – Here is Yowza doing burpees – wanted to check our form before raising the height. Thanks

  • Michelle says:

    Here’s Jake’s attempt. He kept dropping the bar when he was jumping left from the right side. https://youtu.be/I9Nn-gEtd2o

  • Judy says:

    We also tried Burpees but I think Jamie was getting a bit tired and full by the time we tried these. Will have another go when he is fresh and hungry in a few days. https://youtu.be/dWftrx60pw8

    Firefly had a tough time with this one. She did very well the first time and then her 2nd session was so bad I just quit and tried again later. I did t try for as much height as Jazzie did because we were finally getting it.

    Jazzie really did well! I’m beyond happy with how strong she is! She has been on Myos for awhile now and I can see a huge improvement in her strength.

  • Cindy and Force says:

    Hi Leslie. We are having some trouble with these. He doesn’t seem to get the idea of jumping sideways. I tried putting a barrier on the sides and he just kept offering behaviors on the barriers.


  • Patty4027 says:

    Here’s our burpees. I worked with Firefly first and I tried that same setup with Jazzie and we had lots of problems. Ended up working a jump wing in there to manipulate her to jump and land correctly.
    Thank you Leslie!

  • Kayla Swanberg says:

    Here is our first session with this…for Carat I focused on just the side jump as she worries when she’s not sure what to do, next session will incorporate the down. For Claire I started with just the side jump and was able to progress to adding the down at the end. For both of them next time I will add a cavaletti on each side to help keep them close to the bar we’re working on as well. Looking forward to your feedback to keep fine tuning this maneuver. Thanks!


  • Christina And Ripley says:

    Ripley always wants to take a bow versus a full down. We are working on it! I’m really pleased with how she did; this is the first time she has ever done this exercise!


  • Joni & Eevee says:

    We have kind-of done exercise before, but without the down.
