Well, in that case, he's certainly telling you that he is not finished with play time! I'd probably put a harness on him and just gently walk him inside. (pulling just on his neck could be harmful.) Certainly when he is full sized, it will be problematic if he refuses to come inside when you need him to, so getting him in the habit of complying now is probably a good idea. Make it as positive as you can by giving him a treat when he gets in the door.
Also, make sure he is getting enough outside play time as well, so he feels more satisfied.
