Some people like to use dog commands in German.  Especially for German Shepherds.   Especially in Germany.  It’s comes in real handy if the dog comes from Germany and was trained with German commands.

It really doesn’t matter to the dog and he will respond the same in any language.  As long as you, as the trainer, are consistent and use the same command all the time.  German commands for dogs have always been popular.  Using a foreign language to train your dog is a good way to have your dog respond only to you.  A lot of people like to train attack dogs or guard dogs using a foreign language so they will be less likely to respond to a strange person.

Some of the dog commands in German sound just like the English command, some don’t.
