remember that if you make yourself a sort of moving target he'll most likely follow you. practice in the house or in other places where you know you'll get good results so that you can reward a lot and build up to other places where he is less likely to come when called.....
it may be a good idea to have some practice sessions just outside of your work shed that do not end with him going inside...just some short sessions...so that he doesn't associate the cue given there as an end to fun...maybe take him out let him go a short way then call him back, reward heavily, let him go a short way, call him back reward heavily...then go off and do your business, come back and have a few repeats of calling him to you and letting him go again....then going out and about again...mix it up at different intervals of coming and going from the shed.
you may want to schedule his feeding times around his shed/kennel times too if that is possible...that way he is a little more excited about going in. if that doesn't work you can try stuffing a kong with something that he likes and only giving it to him at those times...a really good chewy/toy/treat may make him want to go in to get it. in the mean time, you may want to pick him up before he wonders and just carry him into the shed if you are rushed...that way he isn't associating your cue with something unpleasant.

you are correct, he is doing quite well for 14 weeks ...keep up the good work...
if you can, there are some really helpful videos on youtube that demonstrate clicker training and different techniques to get a desired behavior....

A couple of exercises we did with Mikey (his recall is 100% in all situations now!)

1) in the house, two of us sat opposite ends of the hallway with treats, and took turns calling him back and forth, and giving treats for coming.

2) at the park on a long line-similar exercise. We started at opposite ends but so the line reached (50ft line) and called him back and forth, treating and making a big fuss

3) Same exercise at the park, off line.

4) The 'follow me' game It just sort of happened one day. We had him off leash in a fenced park (not a dog park, technically not an offleash park, but no one ever goes there so we did use it to teach off leash). We walk in one direction and when he went to far ahead, we recalled, and spun the other direction. As soon as he passed us, we turned around the other way. Eventually turned into silence and just changing direction, rewarding him for following. This taught him that it is his responsibility to watch us, and follow us. It's worked wonderfully.

those are great games that help to build a good recall...another good one, that takes two people, you can do it in doors or out, one person holds the dog and the other hides...you start out by calling the dog, then you are quiet...my sister and i do this with clover...he's learned to try to keep us in his sights when he is off leash....

hi guys, to update. clicker training has gone in the bin, the dog pretty much ignored it and i probably did not enforce it enough and lost faith.
so went back to old method of treats and praise. now if i need him back he does come not everytime but progress is good. very pleased he is becoming a great dog and a good hunter.
