Work on a sit/stay or down/stay every day for about 34 days, keep a leash on him, or work on a good recall.

She will also bolt if she see's a cat which is very frightening. I would really like to have the confidents to check the letterbox through the day & for Busta to come out the front with me, I do fortunetley love on a quiet street. I do obedience with her & she is great in her class, I just would love some tips so I can get this down packed.I also would like to have her controlled in all enviroments as down the track I'm interested in doing TV & performance work with her
Letting Busta off-leash is asking for trouble if she's already a little possessive about her space. That quiet street is not your personal property. You have no right to dominate one section of it by having your large dog at liberty, even for a brief time. You may know that, for now, Busta's aggressive rush fizzes out, but the people and dogs who are being rushed have no way of knowing that. And an 11-month-old dog might very well grow more territorial and aggressive as she goes through the terrible teenage years. The first sign of that might be a serious attack on another dog, or on a person. You don't want that (apart from the obvious altruistic reasons) because a dog-aggressive or human-aggressive dog is much, much harder to deal with.

It's great to work on off-leash training - but it's just that, training. It should not be a casual part of your day, where your dog is free to run off while you check the mail, or whatever. If your dog is unleashed and unfenced, you need to be working her, not attending to chores or enjoying the air.
