I try really hard not to use everyday words for obedience, for the simple reason we use them all the time.
I've been really working on obedience with Delgado and teaching him voice commands along with the hand signals. He was at my parents yesterday morning and she was feeding the dogs breakfast and asking her cocker spaniel to "sit" when she was giving her the food. She said the command a few times and each time she heard a "thump" noise, she looked over and every time she used the command Delgado would stop eating and sit, then look at her and go back to eating, only to stop and sit again after she said the command again to Lady. She wasn't talking to him but because he heard the command he obeyed it
By the fourth time he was obviously getting annoyed at being interrupted and confused.
Now I'm rethinking doing english commands, I might do german instead. I've never had a dog before that's SO obedient he listens to everything you say. Jazzy is great, but I have to say her name normally to get to look at me before giving a command
