Step 4: Work at a safe corner


While on a leashed walk, approach a curb or corner. When you get there, tell your dog, “Wait,” and then stop. Bring a treat down right in front of their nose and let them eat it Practice approaching this same spot 5 times.

Be sure you are at a safe distance from traffic! Do NOT test this one at the very edge of a busy intersection in case your dog misses the mark.
