Sit Signal

I've run into an unexpected problem with Zumi's signals.  Knowing that creeping forward is a common problem in the signal exercises I've been pretty clear how I want her position changes to look.  A fold back down, a lift back sit, and a kick back stand.  Zero forward movement.  So when Zumi started offering scootching backwards a little bit from her down to sit I thought it was cute.  I rewarded it.  A bunch.  I honestly never thought it was going to stick as she didn't always do it.

So now we have this!

Alright I have to fix it.  Motion forwards or backwards is deducted the same, no matter how cute.  She's a little confused as to why I'm resetting her a lot now, but she is starting to get it.
