Enclosed is a short video clip showing the play bow in dog behaviour. It is universally recognised, by dogs and wolves, as an invitation to play. Note how the dog that invites the other lowers the front part of its body (like the downward facing dog, yoga position) showing the other dog that it is not a threat and would like to play.
