I don't know how the use of platz came about. Knowing more than a few words in German, I was a bit confused myself.
Maybe because niederschlagen doesn't exactly roll off the tongue for a dog command. It also has too many syllables.
To the dog, it doesn't matter. She just associates a word with an action. You could say 'chili' and teach her down.
Fu▀ is of course, foot as in Fu▀ball and you want the dog at your foot when you give the command.
