|Nare, when walking Lupi leashed or unleashed, I don't let her investigate people's yards. Some people really don't want dog pee ruining their grass, and I respect that. I don't care if we cause their dogs to bark. They can walk past our house without Lupi going ballistic, so it's not really our problem.
Lupi doesn't have any interest in approaching people, so I didn't have to worry about that. Even when she saw a dog she wanted to meet, she just wagged her tail, inviting them over.
If walking on a sidewalk with shops etc, I keep her in a heel. But when we're hiking in the woods, I tell her to "go run!" She tears off after every squeaky noise she hears, but always returns when I call her.
Even if she's staying right by my side, I still love the feeling of no leash. It seems like she's walking with me simply because she wants to, instead of being forced to. Not that I yank her leash or anything-you know what I mean!
