As with any training, make sure that initial sessions are done with as little distractions as possible - learning a new behavior will be easier if your dog gives you his full attention. Roads with less and slower traffic are good training grounds.
Try not to overwhelm Fido - training sessions should be brief (no more than 10-20 minutes each) and repeated daily, rather than forcing your dog's attention for extended periods.
What you'll need:
- Treats - something that your dog really likes, that will reward him highly
- A clicker (if your dog is used to clicker-training)
- A short leash
