Passive Submission Play Bow
Play BowA dog who is feeling play full around another dog will go into a "play bow" posture. This posture is an invitation to the other dog to play. The play full dog will suddenly drop the front of his or her body to the ground while leaving the hind end high in the air, the tail will be up and wagging and ears up or slightly back. This action may be followed by the dog barking at the other dog and running around in circles to entice the other dog to play.
