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.

Yeah, I have no idea what you wrote in Chinese lol so I wouldn't know if it's too long. But if Chinese is anything like Japanese (one of the Japanese writing systems uses the Chinese symbols), a symbol would be up to 3 syllables, which would already be too long, but dogs would just listen to the first 1-2 syllables to recognize the command, so just make sure the first syllables are different.

Oh, and I train my dog in Modern Greek

this sticks out to me

They don't understand anything unless you teach them. You could use "peanut butter" to mean "sit" and if taught the cue correctly they will sit when you say "peanut butter" The words are unimportant but HOW you teach it to them is.

How are you teaching a verbal cue?

Would you like to know how to teach a verbal cue?

make sure the dog is offering the behavior reliably before adding a verbal cue...if you add it too fast you risk teaching the dog the wrong meaning.

When the dog offers the behavior you want (no signal)... reward reward reward. When its being offered reliably you can add a hand signal or start saying the cue. I find it easier to teach the dogs hand signals first and then fade them.

Lets say the dog is already on a hand signal


say the new verbal cue for sit "peanut butter"
hand signal for the dog to sit a second later.
dog sits
Reward

Evenutally the dog will know the hand signal is next and will sit before it. This is when you can start to drop the hand signal and just say "peanut butter" for your sit LOL.
