13 week old afraid to leave my property

We have had Oakley now for just over a month and despite my best efforts (short walks up the block, changing direction and going up the other way, and lots of praise and treats) she still seems terrified to leave my property line... She does well going up the block but the minute we turn around or get to the end of the block she turns and runs back to my front door.... I have dealt with many different issues over the years but this is a new one on me... Any advice on what to do to calm her fears would be greatly appreciated....

She also has done well the couple of times we have taken her to the pet stores....No fear of anything or anyone....

Whats in the environment that could be overloading pup?

"Runs back to front door"
is pup off leash?

Have you tried being matter of fact and not buying in to anxiety? Not making a fuss?
If pups nerves are sound - id plough through this barrier and come out other side unharmed. Reward on other side of barrier.

We live on a dead end street in a very quiet neighborhood so there is very little stimulation (that I am aware of)... Pup is on a leash at all times, but she tries to pull (with all her might) back to my front door. I usually keep to a steady pace when walking, then stop and completely ignore her when she starts pulling {till she calms down} then I start walking again... Takes about 20 mins to make a 5 min walk... because I repeat the process several times...
