With a soft dog verbal corrections can be enough.

Are you sure he knows what is being asked of him before he is corrected into it.

Him going into shut down is probably a form of avoidance of the training methods applied.

You could be better off watching the class with your dog and using your time at home to complete the tasks using the tug or other reward system your happy with.
