If you talking about teaching you dog a takes a lot of time and work. Initially, when you call your dog, reward him for any attempt to respond, even if it's just him looking and turning toward you. Make a big deal out of it. Lots of treats and praise. If he runs away and wants to play...punishing him when you finally catch him is going to make him not want to come. Don't make a big deal out of it...just catch him and quietly go inside.

If he likes to run away like it's a game...don't play....ignore him if possible. The more you chase him, the more he'll do it. Instead, find a way to make him want to chase you instead. Until he starts to listen and shows a good recall, dont' let him loose outside of a confined area.

Spend short periods of time teaching him this too. A long session is also bad. Spend time teaching him other things too....Sit, Stay, Down, Look/Watch...and so on.

Another good thing...keep treats with you...when ever he comes over to you...or see him coming over, give him your command, such as "come", and when he gets to you, give him a treat. If every time he comes to see you, he gets a treat, he'll be more likely to want to come to you.
