start basic training again. if you need help find a trainer.
be consistent in your training. try training in short sessions
but train alot. keep your dog leashed and close to you when
training. train in the field and high traffic areas. stop yacking
his ears off, lol.

Thing is I talk TOO much during training so now he really doesn't respond much at all to it. <<<<<
At home, indoors, in the parking lot...he's a rockstar at focus and ob.
On fields that have lots of doggy scents or in high traffic areas he isn't. <<<<<
The transition is what we are having trouble with.
So, being that he's 20.5 months old I think he still has a lot of maturing to do and my expecting too much too soon may have been too much for him. He will shut down if I ask too much of him so I think going back to basics may be what we need to do.
