It’s a great trick for your Tosa
Continuous repeating of this trick will produce effectiveness. Over time you ought to stop limiting his head with your hand and allow him to balance the snack on his nose till you state “Paid for.”
He can likewise be taught to hold the treat in between his teeth and to not swallow it till told to do so. This technique can be made more impressive by holding a conversation with your Tosa. For instance, you may state: “Buddy, old boy, here is a really delicious treat, however it is ‘on trust.'”
Slightly emphasize the word “trust” and after that say: “I am pleased you dislike consuming things on trust, but this I have just found out has been ‘paid for,'” highlighting the words “paid for.”
Your Tosa can also be taught to toss the treat upon hearing a certain number. To teach this, balance it on his nose and hold his head while you count clearly and intentionally, 1, 2, 3, and after that touch him under the chin. Before he has learned the technique he will toss it up as often at one, two, four, as he will at one, two, three, however he must be drilled until he will not toss it till he hears “three.” It will make it much easier for him if you slightly highlight the “THREE” word.
After a while you can utilize many combinations of numbers and he will wait until he hears the highlighted “3.” As you are teaching him do not make him wait too long before you say “three,” and permit him to consume the snack.
“Trust” and “Paid For” may be remarkably tough trick for your Tosa to perfect and requires plenty of perseverance from you. Keep in mind, do not penalize your Tosa if he can’t learn the technique, rather blame yourself for being a poor teacher.:–RRB- In any case, enjoy teaching your Tosa this trick and have loads of fun along the way.
