Any tips for training a dog to go on the sidewalk? He really likes the grass, not so much the sidewalk!

If he's small enough, maybe you could try bringing along a square of astroturf or something... if he gets comfortable with going on a patch of grass on the sidewalk, he'll probably stop needing it after a while. May be worth a try, altho I'm no expert... I live in the suburbs and it took me months to get my dog to STOP going on the sidewalk :)

Well I live in NYC and a park isn't always an option there just happens to be one right outside our house. So when we go other places he needs to go on the sidewalk.
