Him technically coming was a joke. I can either be sour that my 5 month just hit puberty puppy isn't an obedience master and pull my hair out or I can find some humour in his antics as we work them out and save my sanity.
Yes, I know he wants to play. Which is why I don't play with him when he does this. Usual out come is I take the toy, he gets put in a place command for 5 to 15 minutes, then put in his crate while I do chores. Before we go to do what ever it was I originally called him to me for. I figured after a few times of this he would realize bolting to go get a toy not only didn't end up in play but got really boring for him.
Long line in the house isn't an option, tried that was a total mess. He got tangled, furniture got tangled, I got tangled. It was way harder to manage him on than just having him on a leash and I would have to go get him anyways because he would be stuck on himself. He has a 6 foot leash on when inside or a grab tab depending on his behavior so he isn't just free ever.
I use the long line reel in play/treat when working him outside. Inside he's never far enough out of reach to justify having a 30 foot leash on him. I call him to me all day for anything from play, feedings, grooming, pets, walk, and praise him anytime he comes to me on his own/is polite and when he doesn't come I get the leash and reel him back to where ever it was that I called him from. We also play a recall and place command game where I have him ping pong between his 3 spots and me from different rooms since we have smoke problems from wild fires right now and outside exercise just isn't an option right now. So it is not as if he isn't getting recall work we just had to take a step back from him being trusted to come outside/ catching up when I walk away/going to find me when he's not paying attention and instead is back to being realed in when ever called and micromanaging him.
