Teach Your Dog to Safely Cross Trafficked Road
The road is a very danger place for dogs!
All the noise from cars, buses, trucks, motorcycles, can stress your dog.
Worst scenario, the dog get panic and try to run over the road…
When you need to cross, walk to the edge of the curb with your dog close to you, tell him/her to “sit” and give them a treat when they do.
Then, tell your dog(s) to “wait” while you check if the road is clear.
When it is safe to do so, calmly give your dog the command to “walk” while you slowly cross the road.
Cross the road with two GSD
Do it with ONE dog it’s a bit easier, but what do you do with TWO big GSD dogs?
We show you how to train your dog(s) to safely cross the road!
The most effective way is to start training before they are 16 weeks of age.
Although, you can train them at any time, but earlier is always better.
Take them for walks and cross the street while implementing sit commands and giving treats.
This will give them positive reinforcement for stopping and sitting before they cross the road.
