My dog does not like walking too far from house

Hi,

I want to take my Australian cattle dog on walks near my house but she seems very stressed out if she can no longer see the house. Almost every day for the past few weeks i have tried walking walking her a little bit further, but we haven't made it very far and it just turns into me dragging her. This means that we have to get in the car and go somewhere else, like a hiking trail or the dog park for her daily exercise. when we go somewhere else for her walks she is completely relaxed and loves being there, she also really loves being in the car though. I would like to be able to go on longer walks closer to the house with her? Is there another method that I could use to approach this? Also does anyone know why she might behave this way?

This was exactly what happened with my puppy yorkie, she initially would always stop and turn her head around at the house like..."wait a minute, home is over there!!!"...she has an incredible memory too...i can walk her anywhere around the neighborhood for the first time and she would instantly remember how to get home.

During the first few weeks i got really tired of stopping and going, eventually i just pulled on her harness and slowly she started following...once we lost sight of the house she was completely relaxed and running around enjoying the sights and views. It was day and night once the house was out of view. Now she loves going out.
