I was wondering if anyone out there uses there tai chi when they walk there dogs. I have knowtist major improvements while walking my three dogs and not using pure force and following all the principles, it like push hands with three people at once. I had to go into gold rooster stand on one leg to get untangled or doing separation kicks stepping over these dog or that at any time and any terrain.

Carlos,

I don't have any dogs, and Fat Cat simply refuses to sit still long enough for me to put him on a leash, so I don't have any real time experience with this phenomenon.
However any time you integrate the Principles of Tai Chi Chuan into any aspect of your life that is when you will find the true value of the art.
And it sounds more like you're having a battle royal than walking dogs to me!

I have a dog now for a year. I think I have really calmed down more blood pressure wise cause of it. I get up early walk more often now cause of dog, get outside in nature, and laugh more. I will need to add a snippet about walking dog to this blog post I wrote.
