Dog Commands in Different Languages

Part 1

          I am sure many of you are wondering why anyone would teach a dog in another language, let alone a language the owner most likely doesn't even know. More often then not dogs trained in protection work will know commands in another language. This is to keep anyone but the handler in control of the dog. Even some regular obedience trainers like this idea, they find it less confusing for a dog out in public. Then a bystander saying "down", if a dog knows the command as "platz", won't get distracted.

          Seeing as how I am not fluent in any other language other then English I had to look toward the internet for help. I didn't use anything like Google translator. That is because without how a word is used correctly or its definition you could end up with the wrong word. (Wont you then look silly running into someone who does know German!) Instead, I searched for many sites that have compiled their own lists. I did find conflicting information so that is why many commands have multiple words. Please be aware that the words used may still be incorrect. Do your own research for the correct words, how to say and use them correctly, and for a more complete list.

          Another point I want you to be aware of, if you live in a community that has people who speak Italian, Chinese, Polish, etc. then using those languages would be counterproductive. If you live in the United States, you will want to avoid using Spanish. If you live in or near Canada, you may want to avoid using French. You see what I am getting at? I am hearing that Mandarin is a very popular language being used around the world, so you may want to avoid using that language.

          Are you fluent in a language other then English? If so please help me out and tell me if I have something listed below wrong, alternatively if you can help add to the list. I will update this post as I get more information or corrections.
