I don't think the problem is she doesn't like to listen. i think the problem is she doesn't fully understand what you want, nor that you are actually telling her to do something. Perhaps work more consistently (5 min a day or three times a week) with her basic obedience. LOTS of positive reinforcement, don't get stressed out.

Remember, it's a little like adopting a foreign child. They don't speak your language or understand your culture and dogs (even the very smart ones) only have the capability of young children. They are trying to learn the language and we have to be kind and patient.
