Why would my Pomeranian not want to walk away from the house?

My Pomeranian loves to be out and go for walks. We go in a circle basically around the block and he doesn't like to walk away from the house. He refuses to walk and sits down and will not stand up. On the way back towards the direction of the house he will walk as quickly as possible. How can I get him to walk nicely with me?

Wow when I got my pom she did the exact same thing. It was frustrating how she would just sit and cry and then try to pull me toward my house. Just the other day I walked her and for the first time we actually did walk! Not stop every 5 seconds!

Let your dog wear his leash around the house so he is used to it. And let your dog out as much as possible. Let him walk around without you holding his leash (of course stay very close to him so he won't run) but all you really need to do is expose him to the outdoors. He sees your house as security when he's afraid. It will take lots of time and patience but he'll come around and eventually you can go on nice walks together!

Your House is ALL the "Security" your little dog KNOWS…- & it's a BIG WORLD out there- to a little Dog! Unless You want to Drag Him all over (an Option OTHER Dog Lovers won't love YOU for), your only Alternative- is to carry Him wherever You want to go…..
