Default How to train dog not motivated by food or praise

Our new dog Honey (will post pictures and info later) is now home with us. She knows no commands what so ever and is a year old. She is not food motivated at all and has no interest in treats or really even eating for that matter. Wrigley is absolutely food obsessed so it took us a day at most to teach him a new trick or command. He is also motivated by praise and loves to be petted and get praise. Honey however does not know her name or come or sit or like food or want pets or get waggly butt when we praise her. How do I even start the training?

Will clicker training help if praise and food do not matter to the dog?

With recall for Wrigley (the first thing I want to work on with her is come)--I tied a long line to him and did it that way with treats and praise and he got it pretty well right away. I quite frankly think with Honey this would probably traumatize her as she just wants to hide and cower when we go near here--and she is not used to a leash what so ever....
