Power Jumping

Now that spring is here, we're going to start up power jumping.

This exercise is easy, fun and wears the dogs out quickly (and you too, if you're out of shape from the winter!)

Six jumps are lined up 10 feet apart, and handlers stand near the end of one side of the jumps while another person holds the dog at the opposite side. Make sure you have plenty of room to run if your dogs are on the quicker side.

This exercise conditions for endurance, strength, and quick burst speed. In my opinion it also builds tug drive.

We will do this once a week, 3 runs per dog, 3 times.
