Can teach my pup to "come" :(

I've tried everything! Treats, toys, and nothing works. He sits, and stays on command. But getting him to come to me just isn't happening. My other dogs do it with no problem. What gives?! Any help will be greatly appreciated!

well i got an older dog that i hada leash train. is he leash trained? when i was leash training her i would give a light tug and say "Stoney" (her name) come". I did it every time she would slow down or any time she wasn't by my side. eventually i no longer needed to say it but she also learned what come meant. So when it was time to go outside I would say her name and say come. she learned it without treats of course she is mature whereas your guys just a pup plus every dogs different so who knows. just be patient im sure he'll get it.
also whenever he's running to you get extra happy and say his name and come that could help as well

The way my trainer taught us was to make the dog sit stay go to the end of the leash and face the dog. Then say your dogs name and come very happily with lots of emotion then quickly bend over and walk backwards as fast as you can between 3 to 10 steps. When the dog gets really close or you are ready stop and stand up. The dog at this point should be quite close and almost forced to sit on his own since he is that close. You want to take a different amount fo steps every time so they dont get used to it and he told us to do it 10 times a day. I had the same problem now he comes perfect with this technique. We never used treats but you could if the come and sit are done perfectly. It takes practice for you and the dog to get it timed right but it works. dont try off leash to soon though a good month of this every day he should be ready for this off leash. Another important thing is if your dog is doing something bad never ever say the word come and then scold them use a different word or go get them and do what you need to do. Otherwise they will then assoicate come with something bad. I hope this isnt confusing as it dose work good. Good luck with your pup.

yeah something like this! start out small though. like just a few feet, then gradually go further away. eventually he will get it. the other thing i did was i noticed what noises got his attention. Odins favorite sound is a crinkle from a bag, like a bag of chips or something like that. so i would make the sound and say come (which he was on his way already) and now hes got it (mostly).
