How many of you use non English command words to train your dog?

Dime The Sheepdog Only Understands Irish

I came across this article today and it got me wondering:

How many of you dog owners out there train your dogs with command words that aren't English or are maybe different from the norm? ie: ("touch" instead of "come", etc.) Do you feel it gives you better control over your dog?

I use Russian and English. Mostly English right now because I want her solid in the English commands so that my family can get her to do things, but will be reincorporating Russian back into her training soon.

We use mostly English. The only exception is release words and their "safe" word (letting them know to stop whatever they're doing NOW). Kaos' words are in German, and Sherman's words are Spanish. I like their release words especially to be non-English, because I don't want it to be anything we use in daily life....and with 3 kids there are a lot of words flying around here.

Mine right now are all trained in English, Spanish and hand commands. I am very grateful for having taught hand signals since my 2 shepherds got older and deaf (TJ is gone now) but it has helped greatly when the hearing goes.

My new pup will most likely be trained in German and hand signals. And my husbands version of English commands.

One of the poll choices should be "multiple languages." I use German and English, and expect my dogs to respond to both because.

I forgot about hand commands. All of her verbal commands come with a hand command.

I use German for my GSD. But he also responds to English. My other dogs only know English, (although they seem to be picking up on the German commands as well!)
