The Lay down Underbelly Rub
This petting technique has been practiced by sacred Buddhist monks for decades. Now I will tell you the oblivious dog owner about this secret dog petting technique. When your dog is laying down, just go over to the animal and begin to rub the animal’s side. Gentle stroking from top to bottom, once the dog gets relaxed enough, it will most likely role over on its back and open its legs. Just rub the underbelly of the animal and watch all the enlightenment happen.
