Scout has gotten off her collar on walks twice. Once I let go of the leash and once the leash came off for some reason. Luckily both happened close to the house. But she still recognized the freedom and my attempts to grab her became a game. Its stressful because she doesn't understand that the road has cars on it. When I let go of the leash I was able to get her to run next to me and then reach down and grab the leash. This was after about 45 mins of chasing her around in someone else's yard. I must have looked like a fool. The second time my wife was driving by and we both we able to try and get her. Again it was a game and she wised up to treats, I had to get her to come close and then reach out and grab her.
