Stellar long lead stay as a dog is walked by across the street! This is what we're really working on right now—being able to ignore distractions of the two and four legged variety, whether they are near or far. Of course, when those distractions are near I make sure he is on a short lead and I offer encouragement, in the form of treats and a reminding voice, but when those distractions are distant, say across the street, we can work on distance obedience as well, meaning asking him to listen to commands even while I am many feet away and he feels like he is off leash. It's going well.
