QUESTION:
I just received and watched your video "Training the Agility Dog," and I thought it was excellent.

My question though, is: I have an eight month old rottie pup which I have obedience trained using English commands and hand signals. He will do what I want with hand signals even if I don't say the command. I am the only one training him and I was wanting to continue hand signals but switch to German, French, Czech, or Hungarian commands. Will this be possible, and will it help or hurt our training? What do you think?

Tyson

ANSWER:
I think you will confuse your dog. Pick one set of commands and stick with it. You will screw up trying to make a dog learn several languages.
