sola mio, i use the leash around my waist because if your dog is pulling it is much easier to have it around my waist and you have better control and you arent getting jerked around, and your right about not needing to give a correction on the leash when you dog is already pulling, when he is pulling you should just stop dead in your tracks, but if the leash is loose and he is going in the wrong direction(not by your side) thats when you can just abruptly turn in the other direction, but there makes no sense in changing direction when there is tension is on the leash because it wont feel a change in pressure. i hope this helps and keep it up
