Does he feel it is worth his while to give up what he is doing to come when you call? For the most part, my dogs will come when I call them but if they have found something they find fascinating or irresistible to sniff or watch in when they are out, it's more like "Yeah, yeah, hang on a minute". I went back to basics with giving them treats when they come as I did when I was first training them, but I uppped the value of the treats (milkbones or carrots they know. chicken is a "I'm coming right now" treat) and that got great response. If they need periodic refreshers I will do the same thing... and hope I never get to the "sirloin steak"!
