    Although this episode was enjoyable, I've had a hard time with the "commands" supposedly in French given to the dog.

    As a native speaker, I know of no trainer that would call his dog the equivalent of -thee-, none... You just don't invite respectfully a dog to sit with "asseyez-vous": "Assis!" (sit!) is what you say. A 5-year old would know that, Google translate apparently doesn't.

    All the French used is grammatically correct, I don't mind the pronunciation, but it's so not idiomatic at the same time that it's making it hard to believe the dog's story...
