When coming back from walk puppy is mad to run forward

It's like as if she gets her main energy then or something, she just wants to run freely but she constantly pulls the lead and needs a decent tug back to get her to listen, only to do it again.

my pup has done that too, she is growing out of it esp now that we have a heel down pat and she now knows Im the alpha. But before, we would round any corner to come back towards home and thats when she would literally try to sprint forward and dig deep trying to dash back home...just keep working with her, maybe try a little bit of a longer walk but focus a lot on the Heel... keep stopping and make her sit and then start again, if she keeps doing it turn around and walk the other direction (annoying I know) and also just practice walking back and forth in front of your house, or coming back from a walk just walk right past the house and do that a few times she will get the hang of it
