If what you are saying is that that your dog only does this when he sees the house, this is normal canine behavior to increase speed when home is in sight. As your dog starts to pull, STOP WALKING, and wait until he is calm then start walking again. You may have to repeat this several times. Also change the route back to your home often to throw him off a bit. This should curb the anxiety of needing to get home fast. Good luck.
