Around the inside of your house walk around with small bits of hot dog in our hand. EVERYTIME he touches your hand with his nose praise like crazy and give him a piece! Make it a game when you see him start to look at you scoot back while whistle, as soon as he catches your hand treat him!!! Do this until he associates the whistle, and your hand and a treat. Next? Stand in the room, whistle, let him get your hand and treat. Slowly start facing with your side to him, your back to him, around the corner and he will learn that the whistle means "touch my hand and get a treat" and it will work from anywhere
To learn his name, sit in front of him and say his name, hold the treat next to your face, as soon as he looks at your face repeat his name again, and give the treat. You have to be fast. You want the name to be almost at the exact same time he makes eye contact.
If you're frustrated with training, so is he. Have you ever had to communicate with someone who doesn't speak your language? It's hard!!!! Make it all a game! Training should be an around the clock fun thing- games of chase (when he's chasing you) perfect for learning recall, games of tug perfect for learning sit/wait/down/easy.
Take a breather!!!! It will be ok!!!!
