whether you live in urban or rural areas, but of course, if you play with your dog in an urban environment, it is very important to teach them to cross the road.
why teach their dog to cross the road? What method? Step 1: Learn static commands step 2: learn “sidewalk” step 3: Learn crosswalk
why should he teach his dog to cross the road? For obvious safety reasons, strengthen your pet’s obedience and listening in an exciting environment, and teach your dog to wait for your command before taking action to control your dog, Even in a challenging environment, walking in a city or small town will be easier. What should you do?
of course, it is always easier to teach a dog to cross the road, because good habits will be formed when he is very young. However, even if you adopt an adult dog, it is possible to teach it how to cross the road.
this kind of learning may take a long time, Especially for an adult dog who may have never evolved in an urban environment, or just a dog who is used to never parking on a crosswalk.
however, as long as you are patient and respect the dog’s learning rhythm and gradual process, everything is possible!
step 1: learn the static command
. To start teaching your dog how to cross the road in a quiet environment without too much stimulation, you must first teach him static instructions (stop, sit down and don’t move).
Don’t start learning directly in the wild, that is, in front of cities and crosswalks. Your dog doesn’t pay enough attention, which may make him fail.
so, in your garden or quiet park, stay away from distracting noise and start what I call a classic education class:

Learn more about using a short belt (the same as you use in the city) and starting a tension-free belt walk. Once your dog passes you, turn around, slow down or stop. Your dog must understand that it should not surpass you and stand on your feet. Once you learn to walk with a belt, teach your dog to stop it. When you mark parking, your dog should stop automatically. So, walk a few steps in a straight line, then stop and say “stop” in a firm voice. Tip: if your dog has difficulty learning, please turn around before asking for parking. In fact, when you turn around, your dog will automatically behind you, so it’s easier for you to stop it. Once stopped, you can have your dog sit down and wait (instructed not to move), and then continue walking when you decide. In order to learn gait, please always use gestures (palm open to the dog) to cooperate with your instructions, so that it can regard the command as a sign.
note that this step is not completed in an hour or a day, especially if your dog has never done these exercises. If you encounter difficulties, don’t waste time and let the dog educator help you.
step 2: learn “sidewalk” and
. Teach your dog not to cross the river spontaneously without your consent. He should not walk around at willon the way. You have to teach him to stand on the sidewalk forever! It is very important for the dog to understand that the road is inaccessible before you allow him to go.
. In order for this learning to be consistent and clear for your dog, it must be systematic. Simply put, never allow your dog to act spontaneously, which will be prohibited. This is inconsistent, which will hinder learning.
therefore, specifically, when your dog moves on the road, say a firm “H é h é” or “no”, followed by an action instruction, namely “sidewalk”. If necessary, bring your dog some candy to help him. Once he is on the sidewalk, say “sidewalk, this is biiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii Restart this learning in a less challenging environment and get help from a dog educator when needed.

. Dogs are very intelligent creatures. You will notice that the more you systematically establish this learning during each walk, When your dog sees the crosswalk, your dog will naturally give you a parking space.
at the beginning, of course, you should always enthusiastically reward your dog for doing well, but when you learn to master it completely, 100%, Finally, in order for your dog to fully understand this, you must let him stop systematically, even if there is no traffic. Otherwise, your dog will not understand why sometimes he has the right to cross the river directly, while sometimes he has no right to cross the river
