Tuaght Emma to Bow!!!

I was having some difficulty teaching Emma to bow.

Finally taught Emma to bow. I'm not sure what suddenly brought her out of the sudden submissive behavior when I slipped my hand under her belly.
I worked a bit on me touching her belly more often (I thought all the belly rubs she got on a daily basis was enough). Been giving her lots of praise.
I also started using her feeding time to try to train her in bowing. At feeding time she is tunnel visioned on getting her food. So I began using her kibble as a treat and EVERY time she bowed, she got ate the piece of kibble luring her into position and got to eat her meal.

Awwwwww.... that is too cute! I've been wanting a pug for years but our schedules aren't good for a dog :(

Animal testing is a terrible idea; they get all nervous and give the wrong answers.

I'm still giggling at the end when I gave her release command.
