Would you use 'Sleep', 'bang bang', or something else?
The pup and I were waiting at Car Toys for work to be completed, so we had some time to learn a trick... since he was on a leash, I decided "sleep" would be easy.
He learned it pretty quickly (simply going from a down position to rolling onto his side). Through the training I noticed that he hears "sleep" and sometimes thinks it's "sit". When he learns "stay", is this amounting to too many "S" commands? Should we give him the benefit of the doubt that he won't get confused if he'd just listen to the whole word?
My boyfriend suggested 'bang bang', but it's certainly not as cute as 'sleep'. Ranger also responds to 'go to sleep' now as well, but that seems like a pretty long command just to differentiate between 'sleep' and 'sit'.
