Name of various objects?

I've been attempting to teach Smokey the name of different objects for the last two? maybe three weeks now. We are starting with phone and shoe. I put both in front of him and say 'phone' and he's supposed to paw it. Then I say 'shoe' and he's supposed to paw that. He gets it...But if I switch places of the two (put one on the left when it was on the right; and the other on the right when it was on the left) he doesn't get it. I think he's looks for a pattern. If I touch the object, and say 'phone' he'll copy. But I don't think understands the concept.

How can I teach him the name of different objects?

I'll post a video later of us practicing later...

Any ideas?
