If you have a pup that will not heed to command “come,” do not chance them. This will only make your puppy runaway farther. Instead, when they look at you, call their name and immediately you run away from them. Soon they will be chasing you and will associate command “come” as intended. They will come to you.
Remember this always, a puppy should only be scolded when they are caught in act of doing something they should not be doing. Never scold a puppy when you have not caught them in act. Use command “shame” when looking at evidence but do not look at dog when vocalizing this. Over time, they will associate command “shame” with your disapproval mood. They may never associate it to their act unless you catch them in it. Leave it at that. No other scolding will help, in fact it will do just opposite. It will make puppy loose trust in you rather than want to correct their error because they do not associate act with your mood and commands.
