in a few months it wouldn't be uncommon for all of his training to seemingly go out the window and you'll wonder who swapped your sweet obedient puppy (don't worry, it comes back).
as others have stated - continue to proof - no 99%, most of the time, except, unless, if, only, but, etc...
increase distance, distraction & duration (but only one at a time)
if he knows "sit" have him sit inside, outside, on concrete, in grass, in sand, on a platform, in a puddle, on a grate, on stairs, in a tree (obviously not at this age)...
simple tricks - shake, speak, spin, roll over, retrieve/individual toy recognition (different than fetch)
a friend once told me, unless your dog can *insert command* off leash, in the middle of union square, then your training isn't done. attainable or not, it keeps me on track.
