Hi tenniskitty, you're not alone. Lots of dogs go through the same thing. It's not that Onyx won't listen to you, it's partly because she's so distracted she just can't do her tricks, and the other part of the equation might be that now you're asking her to do something totally 'out of context'.
You've trained her to do tricks in the house. Now you need to essentially train her to do them outside. You don't need to start over, but start with simple things in a quiet area outside, good treats, just you and her, no distracting toys around, make sure the neighbor's cat isn't sitting on the fence, and just ask for things she knows without thinking ... sit, down, stay, walk on a leash. Treat her generously for doing all those wonderous things. Get her used to 'working' outside. Give treats like you would during a normal training session. Once she's comfortable with a training session outside, then ask for a really simple trick - maybe shake? Oh, good girl, and a treat. Back to a few basics. Get her totally comfy with working outdoors then move on to another trick, then back to a few basics. She'll give you what she can, when whe can. It won't take long, she'll soon realize she can do all the same things outside that she can inside. But - move her from the back yard to the front, it's possible the same thing could happen. Quickly, tho, she'll get comfortable doing all her tricks no matter where she is - it just takes some dogs longer than others. The main thing is, don't get frustrated with her, just go slow. I bet it will go faster than you think. :dogsmile:
