Puppy only does tricks when treats are involved.

My 13 week puppy only does tricks when a treat is involved. He use to do them all the time why not know more.

you have to keep treats on you, but not give them every time.
mix it up, but not enough to where you lose the dogs attention, just every once in a while, make them do 2 tricks, then 3, 4 etc... before praise then treat is given.

I gave my dog a treat EVERY time until she was about 4 months or so(you have to be consistent if you want your puppy to be consistent), then I started mixing it up by only giving her treats some times(you will see that your pup is doing the commands faster and actually understanding the commands)... You can even hold the treat and give them the impression that they are getting it and you don't give it...that way they never know if a treat will be given or not.
