I will chime in for the gentle leader or some such (it worked wonders with all of our dogs).  Also, we taught heel by carrying a can of cheese whiz in the hand we wanted the dog to heel next to (the left) and dispensed as we walked (he learned quickly that the only way to get the cheese so tantalizingly near was to walk quietly besides me).  Just be careful the can has enough in it, if it sprays empty it makes a scary noise which will totally defeat your purpose!
