Quoting Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum | Boeing B-29 Superfortress "Enola Gay":
Boeing’s B-29 Superfortress was the most sophisticated propeller-driven bomber of World War II and the first bomber to house its crew in pressurized compartments. Although designed to fight in the European theater, the B-29 found its niche on the other side of the globe. In the Pacific, B-29s delivered a variety of aerial weapons: conventional bombs, incendiary bombs, mines, and two nuclear weapons.
On August 6, 1945, this Martin-built B-29-45-MO dropped the first atomic weapon used in combat on Hiroshima, Japan. Three days later, Bockscar (on display at the U.S. Air Force Museum near Dayton, Ohio) dropped a second atomic bomb on Nagasaki, Japan. Enola Gay flew as the advance weather reconnaissance aircraft that day. A third B-29, The Great Artiste, flew as an observation aircraft on both missions.

You should give enough time to the dog to learn one basic command before you move on to the other. You can allot at least 30 minutes every day for the training. Make sure you follow it like a routine so fix a time for it. This is will also help your dog to become disciplined.
When you want to teach your dog to sit then you can gently pat the rear of the dog which is signal for him to sit down. Whenever the dog performs a command make sure you give him a treat.
This will encourage him and will also make him happy. You should repeat the command again and again and help the dog practice this for at least a week. Always make sure you are not impatient when the dog fails to perform the command correctly.
If he fails to do it then you should not punish him or scold him. Instead be gentle to him and talk in a firm voice. If you are rude to him and punish him then it might have adverse effect and the dog might refuse to learn anything.
