In a perfect world the OP would not have lost his job and had to pull the dog from the trainer so soon. I know when I send a young dog off to a trainer there is a week or two adjustment to the new envrioment before formal training even starts. Then you don't just jump into FF, so who knows how much time this trainer had into FF. I feel for the OP, he wants the best for his dog, can't afford a trainer right now and doesn't understand why this is so complicated. My best advise is to find some experienced person who can help him hands on. This is hard to describe to a newbie over the internet.
