You will need to take it slow and work on getting the dog to trust you and focus using calm consistent positive training methods. Try working on the watch me command with lots of praise and rewards until you get your dog to look you in the eyes. From this point I would work on all commands that come easy to your dog and build trust and keep things fun. I would not push the sit command for now b/c there may be past abuse issues associated , and , you have plenty of time to come back to this later.

It is going to be very important to get the wife on board with compassion and understanding that work with an abused dog. may require a little extra time.
