Back when I used to take my 2 dogs to the dog park they'd always come to me when I was ready to go, 100% success rate. The reason for that was that they knew that we were going for a nice, long, interesting, walk. I walked to the dog park and to get home I walked so for them coming to me was always great.
That's what everyone means about making coming to you very rewarding for your pup. Years have passed since I had those 2 dogs or went to the dog park and I'm once again working on Come with another dog. What I do now is arm myself with high value treats, head out for a walk and randomly call him to me and give him a reward. I make sure he's not too distracted when I call since he's just learning the cue, and so far he's doing very well. The reason for practicing on a walk is that he's learning come means come no matter where we are instead of only in the house, or in my yard, etc.
