Walks are frustrating and I don’t know what to do

Here`s another great article:

My dog (will be 2 in December) has always been bad with walks. I did training classes with him and he's great with almost everything else, except walks. Problem can be broken down into:

Only walks nicely if there's nothing to distract him

If there's a leaf blowing, he'll chase it

If there's another dog, he'll jump and want to say hi and play, no matter the context or circumstances

If there's people, he'll want to sniff them, if they just look at him, he'll jump

I just want to be able to relax while on walks with him. I've done the heel click with treats, doesn't work. I've tried stepping away from people and dogs when they walk near, to try and get him to sit on the lawn away from them until they pass, but he'll still lunge. I've tried raising my voice, tried stopping in place and not moving until he settles down, and nothing sticks.

I know it's my fault, I know I didn't train him well enough when he was younger, but walks are so frustrating! I'm 110 lbs and he's 95 lbs and I'm tired of wrestling every time a person or a dog walks by. I just don't know what to do and what to try. Please, any help would be appreciated.
