Default Heeling by side

first of all, I want to thank those who helped me way back with my overstimulated crazy pulling on leash Rolyx. The tips I received helped greatly and we can now go for a walk with less drama...it's not perfect, but we do have it to a point where there is A LOT less tantrums and pulling. Overall, I'm very proud of him, even if we still have trouble areas.

Where I am having problems is when I walk with others, he's not pulling and he's behaving for the most part, but he is slowly weaving in front of us and this gets in the way of the other person. I really need him to walk by my side, but this is where I can't get him to understand what I want and he goes back into pulling if I take him to this position. I have tried stopping and waiting with him by my side, but we just aren't getting it. He has very low food motivation, so that doesn't usually work either.

I see people train their dogs to walk so nicely by their side, but Ro wants to be out in front and I can only contribute this to his husky side. Does anyone have advice on how we can work on this? I'm assuming the things I am trying are wrong, so am hoping I can learn a method he will understand and make progress.
