The art of aikido with dogs

Try incorporating the movement principles of aikido into your dog training. That is, “go with the flow” of the movement rather than resisting it. When your dog wants to pull ahead but you want him by your side, redirect him into circular movement toward you rather than pulling straight back against his momentum.
