When Elka lays down, she'll frequently do it front end first. So, I watched for her to lay down, or lured her not using her "down" cue, and started giving her the "Yes!" word (this was before we were clicker training) when she was partway down (i.e., with her butt still in the air)

The easiest way is to catch her doing it naturally (play bow or stretch), click it, reward. Do that enough times and she'll start offering the behavior, then you can name it and put it on command.

I shaped it with a clicker. I didn't get the first session taped. Here are the 2nd and 3rd sessions. That's all it took.
