Work on training his recall so that he comes immediately when called. Start with a long leash or rope. Step away. Say firmly "here" and give the leash a quick tug. When he comes, give him praise and a treat. Work up to longer distances and then in a fenced yard and then with distractions.

Do not repeat the command over and over. That teaches him he doesn't have to listen right away which can be dangerous.

We used shock collars with our training for very stubborn dogs but some people are against those. You do have to make sure you understand proper techniques for using them because you can do more harm than good if you buzz them at the wrong time.

Actually you can't really stop your dog from running because that is their nature.Maybe the reason why your dog run too much is because he feel very bored, if your dog enjoy staying inside your house he will not think to come out and run across the street.So exert time to play with him.

If I keep you at a place for a long time you will also run whenever let free.
If you are keeping a pet then it is your responsibility to take care of his needs. Spare some time and take him out daily.
