My 15 month old lab has been doing ladder drills and piles successfully, progressed to handling drills and that was going well then I started to whistle sit on the back pile and he was taking the back cast. But this week when I was doing lining drills he showed confusing on deadbird good back sequence. He wouldn't go, I tried different training areas and unless I took a step forward when sending on back we won't go.
Suggestions?

Assuming that you have forced to a pile.....you can use pressure for the no go. Make it more uncomfortable for the dog to no go, than to put forth the effort and go. You can do this with the healing stick, collar, or walk and fetch with the ear pinch.

You didn't say which program, if any, you are following. The Lardy method for no-goes is to say "heel" take a step forward and nick as you move forward, then sit, then resend on back. It works.
