Is there a way to make something so you do not have to increase the height so much at a time? I like to go up about 2" at a time. I also teach the jump separately from the retrieve and only add in a retrieve once the dog is cleanly doing full height. I then start low again (same with the wall).
Once my dog is comfortably doing a retrieve at full height, I tend to work my dog up to that height before a trial and then will drop them back down until a month or so before the next trial. I jump them 2-3 times per week. I don't feel the need to pound their front ends anymore than that. Proofing of the exercise itself can be done at a lower height.
