Teach your Cao Fila De Sao Miguel to give you his paw
To get your Cao Fila De Sao Miguel to offer you his paw, initially get him to sit, then as you state the word ‘paw’ take his paw in your hand and give him a treat. Now do this again, and after a couple of times do not take his paw so quickly. State the word ‘paw’, count to one and then take it. You must discover that he is raising his paw upward as you say the word. If he doesn’t then return to stating it at the very same time. Do it a few more times then slow your response once again. After a few sessions most Cao Fila De Sao Miguels pick this trick up quite easily.
Teach your Cao Fila De Sao Miguel to give you a high five
Like a great deal of tricks the high 5 is a continuation of a simpler trick, in this case the paw trick. Hold a snack in your two fingers and raise your hand a little higher than you’d raise it for the paw trick. Your Cao Fila De Sao Miguel will expect you want to do the paw trick and will reach for the snack with his paw as we taught him previously. Once he rises you state “high five” and offer your Cao Fila De Sao Miguel the treat. When your Cao Fila De Sao Miguel has mastered the paw trick this one ought to be very simple to learn and with only a few sessions he will be performing it from your hand signal rather than your voice.
Teach your Cao Fila De Sao Miguel to leap through a hoop
Before you begin this 1 I would just like to ask you to be a little sensible and not hold the hoop too high up as you do not really want your Cao Fila De Sao Miguel to injure himself while performing the trick. Place your Cao Fila De Sao Miguel to 1 side of a hula hoop, get him to take notice of your hand on the other side of the hoop. Place a snack in your hand and offer the Cao Fila De Sao Miguel the command to stop sitting. In the beginning he might try to walk around or below the hoop. In the event that this happens start again. Your Cao Fila De Sao Miguel wants the snack and will soon find out that walking around or underneath does not get it done so he will quickly begin going through it. Whenever he does, state “hoop” and give him the snack. He’ll quickly be leaping through the hoop upon the command of “hoop”. When I first began teaching this trick I had a medium sized dog, so I started with the hoop six inches from the floor and gradually increased it to waist high. In case you have a smaller dog you might wish to start with the hoop on the floor so he simply goes through the hoop and after that gradually raise it more as he gets accustomed to the trick.
I hope you have enjoyed these 3 tricks you can teach your Cao Fila De Sao Miguel. Have patience with your Cao Fila De Sao Miguel and most importantly, have a good time!
