I too agree with the bonding priority. You 'taught' your dog that you can come into and go out of her life at a very impressionable age. You need to make her feel like she is important to you and you will become more important to her again.

You may be pushing too hard, expecting too much too soon. Back off on your demands and expectations and make bonding and friendship your priority.
I don't expect my dog will ever learn 25 tricks, or even 10, because her performance isn't my priority. Her companionship is.
She is my friend and I don't expect my friends to perform for me on command.
However I do admit that her safety is important and so is that of others so she should obey the basic commands.
