For training, this web site is an excellent beginning. Has articles and video tutorials. Training Positive | Dog Training Explained

Keep in mind your are working with a baby. Like all babies, the attention span is tiny. Keep training sessions very short and fun. Keep training treats small, you will be using a LOT of treats right now. After 2 days of training a sit, he will still needs treats - normal. Later you will be able to begin phasing out the treats.

Post where you are located, someone may be able to recommend a good trainer close by.
Thanks friend, I will read the useful links you wrote and try to get more information. I live in Kars, Turkey where the nearest trainer is 700 kilometers far I will be making treats smaller, sessions short. When he succesfully gets leash training I can start socialising him.
