Is "A kicsi, barna kutyák ide lépnek, nem oda" a wrong translation of this sentence?

No, it's perfectly fine.

Then okay just because I'm Hungarian native :D

Good, then reporting it, since it didn't accept it for me.

I think the differenc between itt and ide (ott and oda) is not to clear yet. I guess ide/oda shows a direction and itt/ott is more like a place? However, I don't really see why the dogs cannot step "itt" but "ide"? (the translation is only "here" not "to here")

That is correct. ide/oda are directional. itt/ott (and itthon/otthon) locational.

A kicsi barna kutyák ide lépnek, és nem oda.
