What, exactly have you done?
He is at a quirky age and it sounds like some training issues and possibly lack of self confidence. You at least owe him finding someone knowledgeable (maybe ask if there is a schutzhund club nearby who can give you referrals) and work one on one with someone. They can also evaluate whether he is having a fear response or is just being a punk.
I have enrolled him in a puppy obedience class at around 5 mo of age. Then I went out and seeked a trainer which I won't go into detail cost a lot of money for a college student like myself. It's like he did awesome with the trainer then a few weeks after the training was finally done its like he completely forgot about it. It's just been hard I read this forum all the time look for tips in training and practice them. I just don't feel like I am giving him what he needs when he acts like that.
