dmadrid Posted February 11, 2013 Report Share Posted February 11, 2013 This came up in a recent conversation with a friend, and I was wondering what the rest of the world does... She is in the process of rehabbing a dog from an injury and is working on her new training schedule. During the conversation, I cautioned her to consider training jumps/contacts less often in the future. Prior to the injury, she was jumping her dog every day, and training contacts (primarily a low a-frame) every day. Every day probably equals about 5 days out of 7. I felt like this was a bit much... when I cautioned her against doing jump/contact training every day, though, she started to get angry with me because she thinks spacing out her training will delay her return to agility. (ok, so that's another issue...) So, the question is: How often do you train jumps and contacts in a week? What are you reasons for training as much or as little as you do? Best, Danielle P.S. - With my own dogs, we train at our training facility probably 1-2 times per week. Penny may do a jump or two in the yard with my husband other times, but it's pretty minimal. The rest of the week is spent on cross-training (jogs, hikes, tricks for balance & strength). Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
