Barking and growling.
Yesterday, I practiced Fuss command with my 9 months old pup. We've been doing this for a month and half. I started to drop the line and let her walked close to me by herself. Yesterday, she walked too far forward. So I bent down and grabbed the leash and corrected her. She saw me bending down to the leash. She tried to jump like she knew what coming next. I popped it and she braked once and I popped the leash again for barking. I feel like she was saying what did I do wrong. But after that everything was fine.
Two week ago, she broke position from sit and platz and I corrected her. She growled.

Do these two actions mean that she not stable or something? I'm just worried.

I'm afraid nobody here can tell you what is going on, not without actually seeing the incident and knowing more.

Do you belong to a club? this is something to bring to your TD

Sounds like a dog that's ready to come up the leash at you. Dog probably doesn't have a clear indication of why you are correcting her.

She stops those behaviors and walks close to me on fuss command and even improve her eyes contact after that correction.
