I would like to teach my dog commands in Dutch.

I've found a bunch of websites that seem to have copied each others commands or are using dictionary definitions that aren't always correct or actually used.

Like for a "Quiet" command, some websites say Rustig or Stilte or Stil.
The dictionary translates the two commands to quiet or silence but I've only ever heard Stil used.

Would anyone WITH experience in Dutch be able to share a reliable list of Dutch commands that are actually used for training dogs?

You could use google translate. It's free and you just type in the English word you are using like 'Quiet' and ask for the Dutch translation and it's usually pretty accurate and long as you aren't trying to translate a whole conversation.

ETA: people use many different commands for the same action. In my house we use 'quiet'. My brother and his family use 'shush' and my sister and her family use 'knock it off'. But the end result is a quiet dog.
