I am not consistent enough to train them different. I know I should say WAIT when I am going to call, but I don't, with my best intentions, I still don't. My dogs understand that STAY or WAIT means that they stay in the position I left them until I release or call them. So I use them interchangeably with the STAY command being used about 85% of the time.
Of course half of the time I call them by the wrong name. They seem very accepting of my disability and come anyway. Kind of scary what they could be if I wouldn't say things like SIT when I mean HEEL.
