If you were on your own property, give yourself a break. You didn't do anything wrong.
Hire a trainer, though, so you know you have a solid recall. And most long lines don't have loops at the end, on purpose, so the dog doesn't get tangled. You need a line that has a loop on the end. Put your arm through it, and your dog can't escape without breaking your wrist. Which is not likely, btw
