We actually do not have a name for this… Ninja used to pounce with a huge leap forward and no to anyone in the landing zone.
So I taught him to crawl slowly over the floor, by scratching the floor.
I think he makes the cutest faces while doing so… a bit shy, because he knows he would love to pounce, but is not allowed to… you can almost see it in his body tension.
But if you ever had his paw in your mouth from jumping up on you or on top of you, you quickly realize that slow is better.
„Paw in your mouth?“ It does happen… more often than you think 🐾👄😄
I taught Ninja to lay down exactly where I am pointing to. Then I simply moved 5cm forward (2 inches) and pointed there… it is to bothersome to stand up move forward and lay down, so, he crawled instead.
I adore this crawl… think it is so cute and just want to hug him 🤗😍💞
