"train your dogs commands" It seems to sound bad to me. Am I right? I've seen this on the Internet.

I've found one use on the "internet" in a review of Sims Pets, by an anonymous reviewer dated 2006 (not the most carefully written form of English). . . It's wrong, should be "teach".

Unlike "train", teach takes two objects "teach your dog commands". With "train" you'd have to say "Train your dog to obey commands".
