Languages?

I was reading Begleithund rules, and they talk about English and German commands. Are other languages allowed?

But as far as I know, you have to stick with it. You can't jump back and forth using sitz for sit and then a down.

Thanks. My first dog came to me trained in Dutch, and it was just easier for me to use Dutch for all my following dogs.

If I say, "Af Liggen", they snap to it. If I say "down", they say, "But I'm not on the couch.".

Yes. Any language is allowed. I would have liked to train my girl in Czech, but I just couldn't get the pronuciations down.

As mentioned, any language can be used but the commands must be consistent so if you use German sit you use German sit always, in protection or obedience for example. I had someone question that I use mainly Czech with 2 commands in German - platz and hier. They thought I couldn't do that but it's OK as long as down is always platz and come is always hier.

That's good. I use all Dutch except for "sit" which is very close to the Dutch word.

It's just that people always want to give the dog a treat and say "can you sit?" I know, it's weird.
