At our training class we did a lot of social walking practice (constant changes of direction, wal;king backwards and calling your pup each time - the pup has to focus on you because they aren't sure where to next and also are often behind rather than in front. Lots of praise / treats when they turn with you etc).
This really helped with Charlie but the other thing the trainer recommended was to switch to a heavier lead (we had a very light braided one). So we bought a leather one and this made a remarkable difference. It seemed as if the weight was enough to keep him in check and now he walks out front but without any pulling.
Expensive to buy if it doesn't work, but maybe you could borrow one to see if it makes any difference.
