10 month old pup playing tug of war on lead when walking home

Recommended Posts

My border collie puppy has been going on walks every day. On my days off we go for a 1 hour walk up the forest where she roams free - general, sniffing around, no ball play). then in the night we go to the park. After work I take her for a walk Around the park, where we play fetch with her ball which she loves for about 30 minutes. She would go on for longer if I let her but it’s continuous fetch which can’t be good for her joints. Then we make our way home. 
Then I had a week off work, Chance was very ill with a bug and I spent all week looking after her. We went on a short walk occasionally. Then the trouble started when I went back to work. On our way home from the park she has now started to pull on the lead when we try to walk home. If I walk off, she jumps up on my back and legs which hurts like s*** and I get really annoyed. I try telling her no. I’ve ignored her only to start walking and she does it again.

point is she’s NEVER done this up until about two weeks ago. I feel so pissed off on the walk back home I feel guilty because she’s my baby. I adore her, I give her the world. But this new bad behaviour is ridiculous. 

Can anyone help/provide advice please?

TLDR: puppy has developed bad walking behaviours after playing fetch for 30 minutes in the park. Tugs on leash, jumps up. Never done this before until two weeks ago.
