Char Siew is one big ball of fur - with a lot of energy. He doesn't get as much chance to expend it while he stays inside our kitchen but once I remove the baby gate - the first thing he does is jump around on his hind feet and even uses us a spring board. He also crouches like the predator blood that runs through his veins. It was cute when he was a puppy but now that he's fully grown - at the very least, it's annoying - but sometimes it's also dangerous because he can topple us over.
I've been trying to teach him to stop using the humans in the House of Queens as a spring board. He doesn't seem to be getting it. I used the knee to the chest technique that one can find in most dog training sites. I also try to use positive reinforcement by giving him treats when he's calm. All I can say is correcting that bad behavior is a work in progress.
Here's a new photo I took of him. You'll notice it's a bit noisy. The ISO in this picture was 3200. I have to crank it up that high because I need a fast shutter speed when shooting Char Siew. He moves his head really fast - that in action shots his head is a big blur if the shutter speed is not fast enough. There isn't a lot of light in the house - so having a higher ISO allows me to at least make the picture as bright as it can be - in that fast shutter speed.
