Sometimes they do haven an anxiety type feeling when leaving their home - they love coming home.
Walking is essential, not only for physical exercise but also for brain exercise (all those smells), so if he is showing anxiety about leaving home, being so young now is a good time to try and get him to trust leaving because you will always return home.
Maybe start with baby steps, go for 10 minutes then return home, slowly increase your time.
You could also use distraction whilst walking, eg gently kick a soccer ball in front of you so that his focus is on that and then when you get home you could give him some off lead ball play in the backyard as a reward. (Make this soccer ball special - he only get it when you go for a walk and gets to play with it at the end of your walk - put it away otherwise)
if your GSD is eating and eating and eating and losing weight - please consider testing for EPI.
