|Body language is certainly a huge part of this. I use "here" as well, but it is more just alerting my dog to pay attention back to me again. You could just as easily call your dog's name to encourage them to turn back to you so you can cue them with hand signals and body language.
I also use "in" and "out" for threadles and serpentines, etc. Honestly though the words are more just for me to talk it through. When Mya is paying full attention to me we can run a course without words. Sometimes in a distracting trial saying things might help her keep her focus on me, but it's the body language, not the words, that matter to Mya.
