Hi!

The best way I can think of is to teach your dog the "Mother May I". It is technically not a command, you just train your dog to look at you for permission before he can do anything (chase a squirrel, say hi to another dog or in your case cross the street).

In my opinion it is one of the best things you can teach your dog to do. The key is to always pay attention to your dog so you can respond to his question! Otherwise he will do whatever he likes.

Here is a link with instructions on how to train this, it's geared towards people with dogs with chasing problems, but it will be good for you too. Hope it helps!
"Mother May I for your dog"
