Try to work on new trick to keep his interest.
Keep training session short, somewhere away from to much distraction.
After a short walk is a good time for training.
And try other treats...they get bord of it after a well. Something new that smell really good.
My dogs go nuts for the Zuke's Mini Natural peanut butter...

Puppies are all about playing. Keep the training short, maybe 3-5mins to start.
Even training an older dog you shouldn't go beyone 10mins because they
lose interest. A few minutes from time to time adds up and before you
know it you will have a little smartie on your hands.

Jackson does that sometimes where he will lose interest. If I can tell that he's getting restless or bored, I will stop, but I always end the training session on a good note by making him do one last thing and then he gets the treat he wants. I started the training at night, just me & him, in my room. He would either sit on my floor or on my bed. I switched up the treats too!

Yes ... it's very important not to do any training where there are distractions of any kind
Think of a dog having severe ADD
anything that comes by that has the least bit interest will grab their attention
always make it a fun
and even gauge their enthusiasm level
make the training session when they are awake .... happy and well fed
