Squat game with rope

This game is both fun and burly: Sink down in your stance and start working your partner with tugs, releases and heckles. Keep stepping and moving. The object is not to "win" but to keep the action in play. The key lies in setting up the right relationship; the primary objective is to make sure that the other person has a good experience. Keep adjusting the intensity and the direction. This game can be fast or slow and meditative.

This is a good example of what you can do with low-tech toys such as ropes. For more ideas on natural training, or to become an Exuberant Animal trainer, visit www. exuberantanimal.com
