You need to meet dog in box or running space, get to know and spend some time socializing with him before you can walk with dog on leash. Off-leash is strictly forbidden outside the shelter enclosure (because some dogs might get scared and run/escape; they might scary or hurt wildlife or villagers passing by) Almost all of the dogs in our care are former street animals who have never even been indoor and need to learn to feel comfortable around people. Socialization is especially important for shy animals and for those who have been abused. We receive compliments about how great #roldadogs are and this is grace of amazing volunteers efforts to teach them to act nicely around humans.
