Be A Team Captain

Next, take your dog (in training leash and collar) to an open room or quiet area outside. Hold half the slack of the leash or tie it around your waist. Think of yourself as a team captain leading a player downfield. Call out your dog's name in a positive tone and say LET'S GO. If he lurches ahead, call his name and pivot away from him. Repeat this process over and over until either you stagger from dizziness or he starts to pay attention.

Once your dog is watching you, praise/click/treat him and work to increase the distances you can walk before turning.
