Puppy pose is a great shoulder, upper back, and chest stretch.  It is also a good building block for proper alignment in Downward Facing Dog.  Begin in table top with hips above knees and shoulders above wrists.  Keep hips high.  Walk hands forward until forehead comes down to the mat.  Create space in upper back by pressing chest and armpits towards the floor.
