Haha yep you need to give it time. I've had my foster dog now for 6 weeks as of tomorrow. While I've made great progress on his confidence and overcoming some fears in the home and allowing me to handle him I've made almost zero progress on any obedience training with him. Granted I've focused much more effort on the other things but I have put a decent amount of work into getting him to learn 'down' with zero luck. After 6 weeks I'm just getting to the point where I think I can shift my focus much more towards obedience basics. Really all he knows is sit and he will rarely do that without a treat and a loose grasp on "off" to stop jumping up on people.

Tell your wife 5 days is nothing and she needs to relax.
