Treats in the pocket. Carry some around and casually give one to the dog every time he comes when called. They learn within, oh, about 2 treats worth of calling them what they're supposed to do.

Try distractions while keeping him on a long lead. When he seems interested in the distraction, call him to come. If he doesn't come, give a bit of a tug.
