One suggestion I have is NEVER call unless you can enforce the 'come' command. That means practice it with a long line attached to the collar. Call your pup and reel it to you if it doesn't obey. Give it a treat. Also, play a game with two people. One person holds the puppy and the other runs a bit away and calls the pup to it. Give a treat and lots of praise when it charges to you. Then you hold it, and have the other person call and give treats and praise when it runs back.
