what exactly does the umbilical do? does it help with teaching your dog to hell and how often should you do it. i have used and so it is just keeps him calm, near me and he pays more attention to me ( so he movs when i move without being pulled).

From my understanding, it teaches dogs that you are the alfa, and that they must pay attention to you as the boss, and do what you want them to do.
It's a great training aid, do it until your dog is in tune with you, and even after it's a good idea to do it every so often to keep up the obedience skills.
