I've been had

Gunther was doing so great at not jumping up on me once I started jerking my knee up. He has figured out a way around it. He now jumps up from a little distance outside of knee range and lunges with his paws.

On the plus side, I am SO proud of his progress on the sit and stay. I have reached the point where I can put him in a stay and place treats around the room with him watching and waiting for permission. I can also put his favorite toy (the football for those of you who don't already know) on the ground and get him to ignore it. Today we started working on "leave it" to discourage him from bringing the muddy ball into the house. It's slow but he's showing huge progress.

Anyway, any help with trying out avoid Gunther's jumping now that he's outsmarted me?
