Multiple languages?

Who has taught their dog in different languages?

Thinking about teaching my mal in dutch or German too. And using those commands as 'working' commands. Use them when working use English when at home ?

English, hand signals, some German for formal behaviors and a made up word for the command "come". Some family members were lax with command follow through so I saved myself and Sonny some frustration and just changed the word. It worked out well for us.

Having taught my Yorkie in English and my GSD in German has been amazing! If I ever get a third dog, I'll probably teach it in French. It's super convenient to have dogs taught in different languages.

Taught my dog in English initially. Then "converted" to Russian and use exclusively Russian now. She still remembers the English versions. Bi-linugal dog.

Taught rosko in English. The recall in English is simply ROSKO COME. The informal is here boy, or hyai, or just rosko. When I started e-collar training I needed to come up with another recall so I chose VON MIR. Which simply means by me in german. Both VON MIR and ROSKO COME are very reliable. ROSKO COME he runs and sits at attention in front of me. VON MIR he just comes with in reach. That's the only phrase.

Trying to give Mila commands in German but find myself using my home language of Afrikaans(South African Dutch) which is close to German.

That is exactly what I do. With two of my dogs, German is reserved for me and working. My wife can give the dogs commands in English. I can use either, but when working or at a trial, it is the German commands. My wife will not reinforce the commands, so she will not give the dogs any commands in German.

With the third dog I use Dutch, and I am the only one giving him commands. He does not know any English commands yet.
