I would say the recall command and quickly tug to get em started my way and when they were coming mark and reward. Do that several times where you don't give the dog time to beat the negative reinforcement and then after a few of those you make a slight delay btw the command and the -R and then see if the dog can beat the -R. If yes you mark and reward with jackpots. If you get blown off after that you mark with a no and punish. The dog clearly knows it at that point and is making a decision to blow you off. You discourage that with positive punishment.
