Re: Aikido With A Dog

The book Aikido and the New Warrior - Richard Heckler (editor), had an article about "Aikido with Wolves". Since dogs are descended from wolves, the article could apply to dogs with modification.
To clarify, the article Ted is referring to was written by Fred Donaldson. If I remember correctly, Fred was talking more about "aikido" rather than aikido with wolves -- more metaphorical than literal/physical applications on wolves. I had the opportunity to "play" with Fred a while back at an Aiki Extensions conference where he shared his thoughts on "Original Play." You can get more information on this subject at his website,
