Yes, he goes everywhere with me.

" He " is in the pub, therefore the dog ( presumably ) does go everywhere with him.

We can't use 'nowhere', because it doesn't make sense to say 'yes', and then indicate that there is no movement.

'Yes, we go nowhere' is contradictory in meaning. The phrase reminds me of the song lyrics "Yes, we have no bananas". :)
