I taught Piper "off" (4 paws on the ground), and she pretty consistently listens to that. I reward her when she listens, no matter what. I want to make sure that she is 100% with off before teaching her "up", because I want her to understand that even though I've told her she can be up, she has to 'off' when I say so.
Perhaps you could try in this order?
