Getting a dog to take medicine is no easy task.

Correction: getting a dog to take medicine was no easy task.

This Portuguese man has a clever method for making sure his pooch takes his medicine. You can't understand what he's saying, but it isn't too tough to see what he's doing.

He tells the dog that he can't have it, which only makes the animal want it. The more the man says "No," the more desperate the pup grows to have it. It's reverse psychology at its finest.

No pill pocket. No slipping the pill in a pile of hamburger meat. No problem.

What do you think? Will your dog fall for this trick?
