3 Tricks To Teach Your Fila Brasileiro
3 Tricks To Teach Your Fila Brasileiro

To teach your Fila Brasileiro tricks, even the simple ones, you should get hold of some of his favorite snacks, go to an obscure suitable location and hold the instruction sessions to under fifteen minutes or the Fila Brasileiro will start to get tired. Just remember when he gets something right offer him lots of appreciation and a reward snack, however take care not to get him over thrilled or he might lose focus.

Teach your Fila Brasileiro to give you his paw

To teach your Fila 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 treat. And then do this again, and after a few times don’t take his paw so quickly. State the word ‘paw’, count to one and only then take it. You ought to notice that he is raising his paw up as you state 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 a few sessions most Fila Brasileiros pick this trick up quite easily.

Teach your Fila Brasileiro to give you a high five

Like a great deal of tricks the high 5 is a continuation of a simpler trick, and in this case it’s the paw trick. Place a snack in your fingers and lift your hand slightly higher than you’d do for the paw trick. Your Fila Brasileiro will expect you desire to perform the paw trick and will reach for the snack with his paw as we taught him in the previous trick. Once he reaches up you say “high 5” and give him the treat. When your Fila Brasileiro has actually mastered the paw trick this one ought to be extremely easy to master and with only a few sessions he will be accomplishing it from your hand signal rather than voice control.

Teach your Fila Brasileiro to leap through a hoop

Before you begin this one I would simply like to ask you to be a little practical and not suspend the hoop higher than necessary as you do not really want your Fila Brasileiro to harm himself while performing the trick. Place your Fila Brasileiro to one side of a hula hoop, get him to take notice of your hand on the opposite side of the hoop. Place a treat in your hand and offer the Fila Brasileiro the command to stop sitting. At first he may attempt to walk around or beneath the hoop. If this takes place start once again. Your Fila Brasileiro wants the snack and will soon discover that walking around or beneath doesn’t get it so he will quickly start going through it. The moment he does, state “hoop” and give him the snack. He will quickly be leaping through the hoop upon the command of “hoop”. When I first began doing this trick I had a medium sized dog, so I began with the hoop six inches from the ground and slowly lifted it to waist high. In case you have a smaller sized dog you may wish to start with the hoop touching the floor so he simply goes through the hoop and then gradually lift it once he gets used to the trick.

I trust you have enjoyed learning these 3 tricks you can teach your Fila Brasileiro. Have patience with your Fila Brasileiro and above all, have a good time!
