star is an unknown quantity at this point
Just not Getting it.

Good morning to all! I'm new to the forum and I have a three year old Pit Bull named Star and she's a very good dog. I have trained her with consistency, but it seems she just doesn't get it. Before I let her out of her crate, I make her sit-stay so that she doesn't just burst out of the cage out of control. I can't understand why I have to do this every time I get ready to let her out. When I tell her to lie down, she lies on her stomach and inches forward, and if I leave the room, she gets up. I need any tips on how to get my dog to be more obedient to the commands that I know that she knows. I don't exercise her like I should. When is the best times to train? How can I get her to catch on to the daily routine? She's also aggressive towards anything unknown.

You're going to need to step up her exercise.
Train after exercise. A tired dog is an obedient dog.

Welcome to the forum.
Made me smile when I read about the belly crawl, so typical. Not saying it's the best way but when I'm training a dog to learn basic commands I kind of use intimidation when the refuse to obey. A loud commanding voice, a tall presence and an authoritative demeanor to show them that I am not asking them, I am commanding them. When they do as told they get rewarded either with a small treat or and "atta girl/boy".
I agree with the exercise, it is vital to training.
How about sharing some pictures of Star, we love pics here.

I agree with Joe and Ecko. My Nala girl does the belly crawl, she is too stinking cute. The keys are lots of exercise, lots of consistency, reward/praise when obedient and correct when necessary. You could try some leash work with her as well just to reinforce the commands.

Plus the more you exercise her, the less likely she is going to want or need to "burst" out of her crate.
