    Buy some dog treats and start to give her commands (I would start with “sit”). As your giving the command hold the treat up where she can see it. Most likely, she won’t sit the first time you tell her to. Say it clearly about 3 times. If she still doesn’t sit (which she probably won’t) push her butt down gently until she gets the clue and sits. Stand up with the treat if she stays sitting, say “good girl” in a soft, friendly voice and give her the treat. If she doesn’t stay sitting when you start to stand up, keep pushing her butt down until it stays down. You might want to say “sit” again every time before you push her butt down. Well, that’s a start.

    You can read books and watch videos, but nothing is nearly as good as a training class taught by a professional trainer. It will help socialize your puppy as well as tell you if you are making a mistake – something no video will ever do. The cost of a good training class is worth every penny your will spend.
    If you are on a budget, check with local shelters, many offer good training classes are reasonable prices.

    You just have to be consistant, but patient, with the dog. A dog will learn it’s name and basic commands over time, if it is something it is used to hearing. My dog will answer to several names. His name is Bojangles, he will answer to Bo, Bobo, Jangles, or he will come running if he hears a spoon tapping on a dish. It shouldn’t take long for your dog to answer to simple commands.
