3 Tricks To Teach Your Rastreador Brasileiro
3 Tricks To Teach Your Rastreador Brasileiro

To teach your Rastreador Brasileiro tricks, even easy ones, you should have some savory treats, go to a remote suitable location and manage to keep the teaching sessions to 10 – 15 minutes or your Rastreador Brasileiro will begin to get bored. Always remember when he gets something correct give him great deals of appreciation and a reward treat, however be mindful not to get him excessively fired up or he may well lose focus.

Teach your Rastreador Brasileiro to give you his paw

To get your Rastreador Brasileiro to offer you his paw, initially get him to sit, then as you say the word ‘paw’ take his paw in your hand and give him a snack. After that do it again, and after a couple of tries don’t take his paw so quickly. Say the word ‘paw’, count to 1 and only then take it. You must notice that he is bringing his paw up as you say the word. If he does not then return to saying it at the exact same time. Do it a couple of more times then slow your reaction once again. After 2 or 3 sessions most Rastreador Brasileiros pick this trick up quite easily.

Teach your Rastreador Brasileiro to offer you a high five

Like a great deal of tricks the high five is a progression of an easier trick, in this case the paw trick. Place a snack in between your fingers and raise your hand just a little higher than you would raise it for the paw trick. Your Rastreador Brasileiro will presume you wish to perform the paw trick and will grab for the treat with his paw as we had instructed him earlier. As he reaches up you state “high five” and offer your Rastreador Brasileiro the treat. As soon as your Rastreador Brasileiro has mastered the paw trick this 1 should be extremely easy to learn and with just a few sessions he will be doing it from your hand signal rather than your voice.

Teach your Rastreador Brasileiro to jump through a hoop

Before you start this one I would simply like to ask you to be a little practical and not suspend the hoop too high as you do not really want your Rastreador Brasileiro to hurt himself while performing the trick. Set your Rastreador Brasileiro to one side of a hula hoop, get him to focus on your hand on the other side of the hoop. Hold a treat in your hand and offer the Rastreador Brasileiro the command to stop sitting. In the beginning he might attempt to go around or beneath the hoop. If this occurs start again. Your Rastreador Brasileiro wants the treat and will quickly learn that walking around or below does not get it done so he will quickly start going through it. Whenever he does, say “hoop” and give him the snack. He’ll soon be jumping through the hoop upon the command of “hoop”. When I began teaching this trick I had a medium sized dog, so I began with the hoop 6 inches from the floor and slowly increased it to waist high. In the case that you own a smaller sized dog you might wish to start with the hoop touching the ground so he just goes through the hoop and then slowly lift it once he gets used to the trick.

I expect you have enjoyed these 3 tricks you can teach your Rastreador Brasileiro. Have patience with your Rastreador Brasileiro and most importantly, have a good time!
