I find having the puck closer to the heel lets you feel the puck more (closer to the shaft), you can also sort of feather the puck back and forth.
Also with the puck at the heel, if you want to push the puck out, and then pull it across / in, then you will have a lot more room on the blade before the puck rolls of the blade of your stick.
Practice stickhandling around two pucks in a figure 8 motion, and try not to lift the blade of your stick over the puck. Just let it roll off, push on the back of the blade, let it roll off, then catch it and push with the front of the blade. That will help you understand using the heel and toe.
