I just stopped using the book for Miles to stand on yesterday! Now, when I say "Let's cop-cop!" he rushes between my legs and puts both paws on my foot! I've tried doing it with bare feet, and he can still stand, but he scratches me a lot so I think I'll stick to bulky running shoes for now, LOL. If he takes one foot off, I just say "Both paws!" and he puts it back on my foot. We are working on smaller steps now, but will work our way up to longer walks and bigger steps. I'm planning on mastering the trip and performing it at a family reunion in the middle of July, so it's a surprise right now. Thanks again for those great tips everyone, especially the book! I was getting NOWHERE before that!
