does any one have a listing of dog training commands and their pronunciation?
like come fetch speak sit lay "leave it" ?
i would love to have a page like this in various gaelic/celtic dialects
I can tell you what I use with my dog (the pronunciations are approximations only):
Come: Goitse: GITCH-uh
Sit: Suigh Síos: see shees
Lie: Luí Síos: lee shees
Stand: Seas suas: shass SOO-uss
Fetch: Glac é (this is literally "grasp it," but works better as a command than "faigh é"): Glak ay
Give/leave it: Amach leis (literally "out with it"): uh-MAKH lesh
Heel: Siúl (literally "walk"): shool
Stay: Fan: fan
OK (as in a release from "heel" or "stay"): Ar aghaidh leat: air aye lat

Red, would "suigh síos" and "luí síos" not be too similar for a dog to differentiate? I thought they would, so i left the "síos" off of sit.
Ahh right, I don't know much about dogs, was just guessing.
My dog was never big into obeying commands. Only the ones that suit him, like "Cuir ort do chóta" "put your coat on" for "walkies".
my dog understand sentences. Ok he doesn't the syntax and meaning of individual words in it. But a group of words togethers has a particular meaning to him.
Níl mé ag goil in aon áit. (to him "don't bother getting up")
Tá duine ag an doras.
Fear an phosta.
Cat (we say "cut")
Mada deas (to him "don't fight with him")
Coinigh do bhéal dúnta (to him "there is a dog approaching, where is he?")
Ná bí piocadh (stop picking at his leg)
Tá Mairéad ag tíocht (Mairéad is comming) he knows peoples names well.
If I see a car pulling up and say "Tá Cóilín [or whoever] ag tíocht" he won't get up barking. (A variation- Níl ann ach Máirtín= It's only Máirtín)
"Fanfaidh mé anseo leat" -"I'll wait here for you" -this is for when he goes out and it's a windy day and hes afraid of the wind rustling the trees. When I say that to him he knows I'll wait at the door for him as a bodyguard until he's ready to come in.
If I think of more I'll add them later.
People may think I'm joking but this is totally the truth.
