Heelwork Critique?

So I'd like to get back into the swing of Heelwork with Patton. We took a little break to focus on other things (like dock diving and disc) but since the seasons are changing, I'd like to improve our heelwork finally.

I took this video on the fly last night. Wasn't planning a session, but he was pretty interested in doing something, so I put some treats in my pocket and hit record. Best session I've gotten out of him in a while, from my point of view!? I've never trained a formal heel on a dog before, so I'm a total newb when it comes to this.

Any help would be great. What to change/add/subtract.
