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.

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