Teaching Your Dog How to Perform the Tyre Jump
The tyre jump is quite a simple obstacle for the dog to learn. You can start off with a hula hoop and have the dog step through it then gradually raise it off the ground so he has to jump. Each time he comes through prasie and reward.
Remember: when introducing anything new to your dog go at an easy pace and let your dog dictate the timetable. In the first few sessions you'll see Joe is quite unsure of the hula hoop but he soons gets the hang of it and grows in confidence. It's really important to keep building positive experiences with the equipment so your dog has fun!
