Although it is scarcely taught in modern yoga schools, each yoga asana must encompass the mental and spiritual postures as well as the physical. Therefore, the true meaning of “Shvanasana” (literally “dog posture”) is to embody the love, friendship and loyalty of a dog. So you see, it has little to do with how high you can stick your butt in the air.
