[quote=schh3fh2;2695625][QUOTE=N Smith;2693164] It can be in any language, and if that langage has a two word command(There are none in english), it is ok.

My dogs are trained in Hungarian (I am not Hungarian BTW) and some of the commands require two words to make sense (to humans, not dogs) and when I did my BH the judge was curious as to which language I was speaking, but definitely did not take anything off or make any comments about my two word commands.

This is not entirely true. All commands MUST be said in a one word manner. You would probably not get hit for it in a BH or any club level for that matter. Points should be taken at championships if not said in a one word manner…..

Hope this helps


From 2012 FCI Rules Page 7

Commands that are embodied in the trial rules are spoken in a normal, short and in a one word manner.
They may be done in any language, however must remain the same for an exercise.(valid for all phases).
The commands provided in the rules are suggestions. The same word is to be used for the same exercise.

Sorry you are correct, they can be technically two words, but must be vocalized as if one word.
