I suspect one of two (or both) things happen when you call your pup.

1) "Pumpkin!" Pup looks at you, but doesn't move. It waits. It knows one of two things are going to happen. You will either be frustrated and use a squeaky whinny voice (GAME ON!!!) and chase down your pup!! WHOO HOO!!! Pup LOVES that game!!!

2) "Pumpkin!" Pup looks at you, but doesn't move. It waits. Now you're ticked. You're tired. It's past bed time and the dang dog won't move!! ARGH!!!! What comes out of your mouth next would scare the smirk off a scarecrow. Puppy says, "Oh hec no!" and runs for cover.

Am I close?

Love your take on this Lilie!

Do you play "watch me" game? reward him for looking and coming to you?

My wife and I have taught our 16 week gsd by making a game out of it.
We will take turns holding his leash and then the other will walk up and show him that we have a treat/toy and tease him with it until he goes crazy then run away 10-20 meters.
Then you call him an he will come charging full speed. Then the other will do the same.
In a short amount of time the distance will increase drastically.
I hope that makes sense, it works and your dog will love it and do it.

I would recommend going back to basics, have him on lead till he's doing it right. I would also break it down into the sections. Sit, Then leave, then recall, sit and then your return/ finish.

run away from him! Praise when he chases after you. Treat when he reaches you. Make it fun and worth it for him to come to you. Nothing is more fun to a puppy than having to chase you down. You're playing with him in a sense instead of taking the fun away.

30' lead. Command just for the return, lots and lots of praise. Start giving praise the moment he turns and all the way until he is back.

Restrained recalls are great and doing it often regardless of the age of the pup/dog is always a benefit...especially if you are trying to teach the dog to run to you full speed with enthusiasm.

Yep. Call them, they may run. Run away and they will chase!

I do a restrained recall with my puppy at the end of this video. She's 18 weeks now, but we have been doing this since she was 10 weeks or so. You can see how excited she gets when someone else holds her back and she gets to run after me.
