Try it! In your vid you had your toes to the bowl so she couldn't get into heel completely and is why she was touching the front of your leg. If the bowl is at your side then she can stand on it next to you in heel.
This made far more sense when I was doing it vs when I was imagining it! Thanks for the tip- worked perfectly last night! I'll get some vids tonight!
