Avery's obedience commands are all in German Sitz, Platz, Fuss, Aus and Here all others are in English. We do not teach the command stay, our trainer say's that if you put your dog in position he should stay there until you release him. We do have hand signals, finger pointing up is sitz, finger pointing down is platz and I usually clap my hands or pat my legs for here. Now that his here is most solid I'm going to throw in a more silent way to have him recall.
His release is usually ok or ok go play and he understands the tone in which I use it in; a bright happy fun tone, and doesn't get confused when I use it in a conversation with someone.
