Question:
 

When taking the dog for a walk, does he always need to be in a heel position? I pull him close as cars are passing and if there are a lot of distractions. Is it necessary?

 
Answer:
 

I only use a formal 'heel' command when I need my dog heeling in absolute perfect position with all his focus on me. This isn't really practical for everyday life, I use it for competition or severe distractions only, similar to what you describe.
