Bow (or stretch)

As you may have already noticed, when your dog gets up for a good nap he usually stretches his front legs ending up in a bowing position: what you will learn here is to train your dog to "bow" at your command.

How to do it
Start with your dog standing on his four legs: say 'Bow' and push gently on the forward part of his back (close to the neck) while holding a hand under his rear legs. The result will be that he will lower his head and front part while leaving standing his rear part - thus "bowing".

Tips & Tricks
If you have the habit of "fighting" (always with tenderness!!) with your dog, you can teach him to bow before the fight will start: this way you will both look like two karate masters ready to wrestle!
