I actually used the hoops to fix a dog that liked to launch off the top, though my hoop was at the very bottom so she had to go down the wall to go under it. I got the idea from agility people. The hoop is not on the wall, but actually right at the base.
Now I lower the wall like mycobraracr except I just lure them up, over, and down with food. I slowly raise the wall over time and don't add in the dumbbell until they have the muscle memory well seated in their minds. I am also unusual in that I NEVER use a ball when teaching the wall or the jump. I want thinking drive and have found that, with my dogs, balls/toys remove thought.
