Default confused; tug against you or into you??

i know this is a dumb and easy question but i keep hearing conflicting info and want to do it right. do you want your dog to tug away from you? mine will tug HARD in the opposite direction. if i dont have a good base (feet spread apart) he could definitely pull me forward. its not just 1-2 seconds of pulling. he will dig his back feet in and keep on pulling. i encourage it and let him win only when he pulls hard against me. is this good or bad? if its bad then what the heck does tugging into you mean? he isnt on a sleeve. just ball on string and jute tugs.
