Curb Training

Curb Training

Curb training is done in the public interest to keep the sidewalks dean. “Curb Your Dog** signs are found in many towns and cities, and owners who do not do so are fined. Whether or not your town goes this far, remember that at some time or another your dog may have to be walked in a city where such laws are enforced.

Watch the dog closely as you lead him along and, just as he gets ready to squat or lift his leg, pull him gently but firmly toward the curb and down into the street. It is not difficult; most dogs take to the idea quite readily. The same effort can be made when crossing the graveled paths of parks and other public places. And don’t forget to scoop up fecal matter and deposit it in the nearest receptacle. Those who try to keep all such areas free from fouling can do much to further the cause of dog owning everywhere.
