YouTube has shown me that I am not the only person who trained various pets to jump. My childhood dog, a Standard Poodle named Yankee, was remarkably patient as he jumped the courses that I set up, and pulled wagons and sleds.
Little did I realize that this was actually called agility training. And that more than dogs can excel at it.
Check out some of these jumpers (I think I recognize some of those jumps — I built ones just like them!)
