English term or phrase: sit, lay down, go away
We recently got a dog that was raised in Czech and only understands Czech commands! We can't get her to do anything. All the phrases are just as dog commands.

Go away!


Explanation:
I don't think Czech people really use "Go away!". I've never hear that.
Here are a few more commands:
Wait here! = Cekej! [chekei]
Bring it! = Prines! [prinnes]
