Can't get my dog to come inside when called

I have a 6 month old puppy, that I have been working with on training. All in all he is doing really good. He will actually come to me when we are out on walks just fine. However, when he is out in the yard, I am having an issue getting him to come from outside back in to the house. What would be a good technique to use to practice this with him?

Hi Carrielo,

It usually helps to entice puppies in with something excited or something they really want - a treat works well, but also kneeling inside the door and calling them to you excitedly, or running away from them into the house will often prompt them to chase after you. Squeaky toys can grab attention and provide something puppies are interested in.
