Spanish speaking pup

Really weird question- feel free to delete if it's too off topic, but I thought I'd give it a shot.

We recently acquired a four-year-old beagle. He's purebred so his original owners, I believe, have had him since he was a puppy. My mother recently spoke to his former "dad" and he mentioned that the dog is so obedient and knows all his commands.... in Spanish. We don't speak a word of Spanish. We're slowly teaching him English commands, but he clearly doesn't know any already, and in case we really, really need to get him to understand something.... do any of you speak Spanish to your dog/s? How would you say common commands (I'm mostly looking for sit, down, stay, and come) in Spanish?

Thanks in advance!
