Dog Training, Walking your dog and the Extendable Lead

I’m happy using extendable leads when walking dogs.
It’s ok for your dog to walk in front of you (think a sled dog team with a musher) but not if your dog is pulling*.
*Pulling is trying to get you to go in the direction your dog wants to go and as such is an attempt to lead.
I find the more you try to rigidly restrict your dogs movements, the more you get a RESISTANCE AGAINST THIS PRESSURE and the more frustrated you become at the other end of the lead, arghh. This is where an extendable lead comes in handy.
