I use a few basic hand signals and also hand gestures too.
Open hand palm up - sit
Open hand palm down - down or lay
Open hand up and palm out towards dog - wait
Hand out with index finger - stay
Open hand flat and gesturing direction or go.
Open hand patting my chest - come.
I will slap my thigh with my hand to get him to stop and look. We're still working on whether thats a good one or not. It can be confusing if someone else around is doing it.
Some of those are not probably regular hand signals, but it's just what I use. It works for me.
