I think that is the best method going to make it click in their head. They wanna move let em...go go go...and like you said turn em in circles if you have to just make sure they are moving forward...until moving forward really isn't too fun anymore...then when they are trying to stop on you...ask for more movement...then outta nowhere ask them to stop. Make a big deal out of it...praise them for it BIGTIME...then continue on again...next coupld stops on the way home will be easier and easier. But don't overdo the stopping just yet. Lots of go and little whoa. It clicks in their heads.
