Quick Tip: Road Safety

Get into the habit of having your dog wait when you get to the street curb.  You want your dog to check in with you before they step onto the street.  Anytime your dog gets near the street without your permission use a firm no reward marker and a recall with high value rewards for their return to you.  Practice this exercise on a regular basis, so in the event you have a real life experience, your dog is well trained for the task.  Make sure you are working your dog on a long line for safety.
