Same here. When she was 3 she took off hiding in the dress racks and deliberately not answering even with 2 salespeople and myself looking for her. I was terrified someone had nabbed her and taken her out of the store. Then a few weeks later I was carrying packages trying to hold her hand and she shook loose and took off across the parking lot. So we got this leash. It was just an elastic thing hooked around her wrist and my wrist. She hated it and was mortified enough to reform. She also told me she hated me. I told her that was fine, but my primary job was to keep her alive and safe, not be her friend. We only used it a few times, but it made an impression. We are now at the stage we can be friends as she has lived to be 34.100% true! Anytime we went somewhere really crowded - amusement parks, the zoo, etc. - he was leashed. He would take off running and toddlers can zig zag through a crowd like nobody's business.
You just googled that, admit it!
That's a retcon if I ever heard one....
