To me this kind of situations are actually a sign of learning. When you are working on the mechanical phase of an exercise, basically repetition, repetition, repetition... everything seems to work smoothly, but when the dog starts to really understand what is asked from them they start to look for shortcuts. As Renee pointed, you must be careful not to inadvertently reward those unwanted behaviors. Titan may be "training you" to give the second clue.
I'd also like to know what is the reward and also what kind of alert he is trained to do.
But doing be discouraged, it's all part of the learning process.
