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.
