I use seperate commands
Their name is strictly to get their attention and ensure they know I'm talking to them and not to another animal. I don't just call out "sit!" outside of a one on one training session when I already have their focus, I call out the name and then when they look at me "sit!" and they comply.
Focus is when I want their complete attention and eye contact regardless of the distractions around us.
I do use "look at this" as a seperate command, I do LAT training so it's completely seperated
