I've taught Pogo a bunch of tricks over the years - sit, down, wave, spin, back away, and so forth. One command I never taught was sit up and beg. I've always been concerned that holding a begging pose would put strain on his long spoo back and lead to soreness in the long run. I'm wondering if I'm being overprotective.

Peggy offered up this behaviour a few times as a puppy, much to our delight.

I once looked over and my mini mix was doing it, completely voluntarily. Just the one time. Never again. So strange!! Wish I'd had a camera!

I tend to think if they do it naturally like that, it's okay to ask for it in moderation. Maybe it even works important muscles?
