Sorry about the frustration you now have to endure, but that's hilarious!
I wonder if you could "un-train" him by going through a different pattern on a regular basis...? Just practice each part of the test separately, in a different order, then bust out the actual pattern at the show again. Not sure if it'll work, but maybe it would throw him off enough to make him think and actually wait for your cues.
