Do's and Don'ts

Never: Under estimate your Fila Brasileiro.
Always: Have your Fila approach a guest or friend rather than having them approach your Fila. Basically, let your Fila pet the human first.
Never: Assume someone heard you. Even in a ring situation, never assume a judge won’t approach your Fila in a fast or assertive way. Never assume someone heard you say “Wait!” or “Just a minute!”
Always: Be aware of everything around you when out with your Fila. Make sure you see what he may deem to be a threat before he does. This will allow you to be able to stop him should the need arise. Sometimes just someone running quickly toward you can be taken the wrong way by your Fila. Turn his head or assure him that there is NOT a problem.
Never: Assume that your Fila is so well trained that he will not break a command if he feels the need to protect you.
Always: Learn to know how to read your dog. All dogs generally have a warning sign that they are alert. Sometimes it’s the ears, tail, body posture, or even a change in the eye! Don’t ever assume that because his tail is wagging, he won’t bite.
Never: Make the mistake of thinking that a fat puppy is healthy. Being overweight during this rapid growth period will cause all kinds of problems in the joints and muscles.
Always: Be prepared for lots of love, every day!

Today I was walking our male Fila and a neighbor approached, she had to be within 20 ft., and without warning our Brasileiro leaped standing on his two hind legs as if were a professional boxer coaxing on an opponent. Never before had I nor my neighbor seen a canine prepare to fight with such vigilance. Had I under estimated our Fila? Would you?
