Why do owners or handlers use the word 'Sic!' to instruct a dog to 'Get Him'?

According to Chambers and the Oxford English Dictionary, it's a dialectal variant of "seek."

The command 'sic' comes from the corruption of the German word such, which mean seek or search. In German, sic is pronounced 'sook' or 'suk', but like many foreign words, the pronunciation has been altered over time by those not familiar with the language.
