Because dogs don't understand the exercise as positions, they understand it like movement. When you say "Sit" from a stand, your dog thinks you want him to put his butt on the floor, if you say "Sit" and the dog is in a down, he thinks you are nuts, because his butt his already on the floor, along with his belly and his elbows.
You have to teach the "sit" from the "down" like a different exercise with the same name. They think we are dumb, but forgive us.
