Training a dog in Chinese (or any foreign lang.)
I am planning on getting a dog after I graduate from college (two years). I am majoring in Chinese language, and I asked my Chinese language teacher some basic commands. She told me to say things like 坐下来，进来，过来，等一下,躺下来, etc. But I'm wondering if these commands are too long. The dog book I'm reading now recommends just short one word commands, like (sit, inside, come, wait, down, etc.)
Has anyone here trained their dog in Chinese and if you have, could you give me some commands that the dog would be able to understand? Also, does it make a difference when you are training your dog using a tonal language?
Similarly, if you have trained your dog in any other language I think it is really cool and would love to see what your language's commands are like.
