At Noa's puppy kindergarten they teach "heel" using the treats by your side method too. But it's hard with a hav, as they are so short that you end up walking kind of funny. Also, the chewing while walking issue slows you down quite a bit.
Noa doesn't mind walking on the leash, and she is happiest when we go on long walks (8 blocks minimum, which is almost a mile). She did have to work up to it though. I started her off wearing the leash inside, just to get her used to having it on. And because her little legs are so short, she could barely keep up with me the first time we went for an outdoor walk. But once she got the hang of it, there was no stopping her. Now we either walk together or she leads the way...
