|In my experience, the best way to get a young puppy to come to you is to move away from them. Chasing is one of the worst things you can do. If you move toward them, they'll move away from you. If you move away from them, they'll move toward you.
Also make sure you're not recalling her to do anything she'll view as negative, such as going back inside, scolding, getting a bath, ect. Always make coming to you a good thing. Call her, give her a yummy treat or play with her, and let her go again.
Since she's already in the habit of running away when you call her, you may want to use a long line for a little while. Then you can gently reel her in, treats/play, let her go again, to show her that coming to you is actually a good thing. You can also try playing hide-and-seek in the house where you sneak out of her view and she has to come find you. Then move the game to the yard.
