    He looks like he is worried he is making a mistake and shutting down…
    You totally could put a leash on him and just help him (with light guidance) when he gets lost. Also separating the cues with rewards for each one will help boost his confidence.

    So: “sit” “bravo” with treat….then “come” “bravo” with treat…..etc
    if he needs help you can give him guidance with a leash…. corrections dont have to = punishment
    they can be helpful so the dog feels more sure. He is stunning! I have a girl who also gets bummed if she gets lost….slowing it down now will help it smooth out 🙂
