Unhappy Buddy has a small issue, is it me?

Hi all, as you buys know I rescued buddy from Texas cattle dog rescue. He is a great dog & we are building a wonderful relationship, he has been with is since march 31 & even in this short time I already can't remember what it was like without him just thinking or talking about him makes my heart swell with joy . He really has bonded with me as well & has become my shadow . I hope I am as important to him as he is to me, I feel like I am

Anyway, we still have one obstacle, when I try to teach him a trick, even with food (anything beyond sit & down... I was trying to yeah him to play dead lol) he seems to get intimidated & goes & hides when I ask too much of him, I know it's an appeasement gesture, I just want to know why & what I'm doing wrong to make him feel that way . The last thing I want to do is make him uncomfortable. I'm not overbearing when I'm working with him, I avoid looking him dead straight in the eye & I always talk quietly to him, so what is it? Does he not trust me? I don't think it's that because when a sudden thunderstorm moves in (in tx the weather can change suddenly during this time of yr thanks to heat storms) instead of running & hiding he runs straight to me for cuddles, then I put him in thr barn office wher he can hide under the desk.

So, any insight, guys? Thanks for your time
