Hi, rescued my Ridgeback around 9 months ago, we think she may be nearly 2 years old. She is doing really well, considering she had such a bad start in life. Was not house trained, never was walked on a lead and kept in a cage with hardly any exercise. She is doing great, but I am struggling to walk her on a lead on any slightly busy street. We live in a small market town and she got out of her lead and ran in the middle of the road, the other day. She froze until I got to her but anything could have happened, to her or anyone else. I felt like such a bad mum. Every other day I have been walking her up town to get her use to it, but not sure what else I can do, any suggestions????
