I don't do that anymore for that reason. Its just asking him to go down, which is why I did it in the video, to show how he acted. Yet his problem started long before I even thought about stretching.
He also did it without stretching, and when he was bad he would go down even when I didn't ask him to pick up his feet. He was bad for a while. No one found any pain issues, just possible pinching nerve or even possible panic attack. I learned to work around it, and haven't had an accident in a long time.
