Yes, Doganjo, that's true.

For a non working dog a really good stay command would also be a good substitute for the stop whistle/command. When you think about it that is all you want the non working dog to do so teaching a separate stop command might not be worthwhile.
In our pet training classes  - when they were proficient, a test was to ask them to let the dog off lead to wander around the room(command Go Play or Free or soemthing similar, then to call their dog's name and say STAY in a very firm voice.  If they had been practicing at home it worked instantly. the dog sat or lay down wherever it was
Always have been, always will be, a WYSIWYG - black is black, white is white - no grey in my life! But I'm mellowing in my old age

Sounds a good method, Doganjo.
