First off where did you all learn it? I want to learn how to speak it, hopefully without a class(my schedule would make it hard to attend a class) Also, I wanted to teach my new dog with russian commands. If one of you could give me the pronunciation of the words - sit - stay - down - come - up - no - good boy - that would be excellent!! Thanks

A class with a competent teacher is really your best bet for learning a foreign language, especially one that has strange pronunciations like Russian. Otherwise, you can give yourself bad habits and misunderstandings that can make it pretty much impossible for you to communicate with speakers of the language.

Personally, I'm taking it in college now.

As far as the commands, I don't know Russian dog commands. Though, may I ask why you want to teach your dog with Russian commands?

ETA: I learned it while living in Kiev, Ukraine for a couple years. Find some native speakers in your area. They should be able to help you with pronunciation better than anyone can over the internet.
