Create a Better Jumping Behavior!

Learn to Support Your Dog in Every Jumping Situation, to Jump Safe and Land Clean!

Safe jumps and safe landing gives a better feeling to the human and dogs. Make sure that your dog feels confident in every jump.


Having more control over their body when jumping and landing also gives our dogs more self-confidence and gives them confidence in themselves.

✔️ Improve the jumping technique of your dog with specific exercises.

Consider taking our Woofletics Taping class also enrolling now.

Needed Equipment - substitution will be recommended if you don’t have equipment used in the videos. FitPAWS is offering a 30% education discount. Klimb is offering a discount as well. Information to get the discount will be available upon enrolling.
▸ Rock Tape
▸ Jump
▸ Cone
▸ Klimb Platform

if you don't have a Klimb, it can be something comparable where the dog has the space to collect. If you don't have or can't use a Klimb, you can also just put a pole on the ground to define the jumping off point for your dog. The Klimb gives us more possibilities, but it is also possible to apply the techniques without the Klimb. 


...and you will not need to shave any fur for the Tape :)


There are many possible equipment options or you may use something you have laying around your house.

Training Methods - 
A variety of training methods can be used to obtain the proper movement or position - shaping, luring, targeting, and It's Yer Choice. These methods will be discussed in the video tutorials, in the forum and through video review.

Disclaimer: Some information in this class may overlap or appear in other classes due to the foundation needed for many behaviors, tricks and fitness exercises. In addition, there are overlapping skills needed for many different performance activities so you may see exercises that are the same but packaged up differently toward a slightly different goal.
