I read somewhere (don't remember where) that suggested to have the dog walk in a heel for the entire walk and then to "reward" a good walk with some added leash length/exploration time at the end. I have stuck to that so far for the most part, but since my dog is a pup, we stop about half way and play/sniff/potty and then continue on. So if we are walking, we are walking in a heel and I release him to explore. I hope that helps!
