In the below video, Michael Burkey demonstrates one way to teach your puppy to come when called. You can use your puppy's daily food ration instead of treats which will make him more motivated to come when called when he has to work for his food instead of getting it for free in a bowl. Hand feeding through training also increases your puppy's bond with you as he or she learns to depend on you for what they want; food, balls, toys, verbal and physical praise, etc.
As outlined in the below video, begin by tossing a piece of food away from you and label it with the word "go" to teach your dog to go away from you. Just before he returns to get another piece of food from you, say "come" and as he comes back reward with a another piece of food.

Michael Burkey, Dog Behaviorist at MDT pulled up a chair outside the kennel to get to know Bear. Very quickly Bear's charging was paired with submissive pawing eliciting affection. His excitable behavior had been misread as aggression. Within five-ten minutes, Burkey was inside Bear's kennel leashing him up for his trip to MDT.

While both dogs are very affectionate, Burkey and MDT Certified Dog Trainer Eric Allport are especially fond of Bear.
