12 month old not happy during training

Dexter and I are doing an intermediate behavior class. Positive and some corrections. I have learned to correct properly, even though hes a really soft dog. He isnt completely shutting down now, but he seems just to be going through the motions and not engaging with me like before. Even his sits are now more to the side and not facing me. He listens well at home and has fun other places but the moment we get to class, he looks depressed . I need some help on what to do. Im trying to make the class more fun, but theres no time to reward his behavior with his tug toy, as the class is already going into their next exercise.
