- Keep what you buy—No expiring content; you can go back any time to watch the videos.
Every course your dog will perform is mostly jumps, so he should approach jumps with great confidence and an understanding of how to perform them. Susan Salo believes the development of these skills begins at the puppy stage—teaching young dogs to read and drive a path to their target (and person), to understand how to react to distances that are constantly changing, and to do so without producing extra strides where they are not needed.
You can begin teaching puppies about the mechanics of the job ahead as early as four to six months of age. Because this program is not about schooling puppies to jump height (jump bumps are used), it's safe training for your growing puppy. The focus is on imparting an understanding of jumping and on developing a sharp, flexible mind that can problem solve. You will be surprised at how effortless the grids become for your puppy and at how great the payoff is down the road.
Dogs that have been trained from puppyhood using Susan's jumping process not only really enjoy jumping, but also move toward a jump full of confidence and without rushing, while using their bodies in a way that makes the task of jumping look effortless.
The DVD shown Susan working with a group of puppies of various ages and breeds. It also includes PDF files for three articles that Susan wrote for Clean Run magazine: "Starting Your Puppy Off on the Right Foot, Parts 1 and 2," and "Balance at the Start Line"
Note: It is strongly recommended that you watch the entire DVD before beginning this jump training program. The goal is not to perfect each jump grid and then move on to the next; rather, it is to work on two or three different grids each week, varying which ones you select to train each time.

She offers a unique perspective and knowledge of the mechanical aspects of jumping which when properly applied can create muscle memory and balance for the canine athlete. Not to be confused with a handling seminar, her lessons and workshops focus entirely on the dog and build better jumping skills and instill more confidence and speed. Training with Susan is an opportunity for you to develop your "eye" and witness your dog learning about balance, striding, and scope until jumping becomes effortless.
