I'm pretty rusty, and my spelling is prolly off (I didn't often write out the commands for my dog. ) but to add a few... "suche" for search. This would be a fun skill! And "bleib" for stay. And "sitz" or "sitzen". That one's prolly self explanatory.
I would recommend kenneling the dog before trying anything. But, honestly, I don't know that any dog would respond to an attack command without proper context and a "bad guy" present. I know I'd be a little confused in that situation, if I were the dog.

With Rottweiler's, Pit Bulls, Dobes, Shepherds, it is often the Thug mentality. My dog is tougher then your dog, thing. People think it is funny to have a dog that they can Sic on their friends or scare people with.

I have admittedly had dogs trained to do this

But keep in mind this "noise" is just noise and the dog is not being trained to attack, just verbalize. This is a command no different then a "sit" or "down" or "high five" If you were a bad guy thinking of breaking into my house at the door and a dog was doing this, would you still push your way in? Likely not. This dog however, is perfectly safe around people of all ages and sizes as it knows nothing of attack work. It is just a game for treats.

I have an 8 year old american bulldog (scott, looks like a pit) that is super highly trained in a variety of tasts...

Sit - he just looks at you, unless you have treats.
stay - he actually does.. if he wants to
speak - he just looks at you
come - he just looks at you, unless he wants attention
attack - he just looks at you
paw (or high five) - he sits, because he thinks youre going to give him a treat
roll over - he just looks at you
play dead - he does just fine, but while looking at you

hike, and ride, gets him into a frenzy

funny thing is other dogs on the hiking trail or at the park wont let their dogs near him because he looks like a big beast. My 2 yo nephew lets buster drag him all over the house by hanging on his harness :)

No more seizures, at least nothing major. We have wondered about his leg shaking when he plays with his friend "Fuzz" during the play dates. A couple of times, he would come by me, sit down and then his leg would be shaking like crazy. He was also salivating so... wondered if it was a miniature seizure? His meds are at the right level according to last Fridays blood test so.. we will stay here for some time and see how things go.

Now I am dealing with his digestive issues which seem to have gotten worse again. So frustrating. His father is the number one Rottweiler in the US. Mother a champion. Scary... IF it is epilepsy, how many others?

Aww I hope he is doing better. With such a bloodline like that you wouldn't expect these kinds of problems :( Best of luck!
