Ozzy did the same thing. We'd get to the edge of the yard, and he'd sit down and would REFUSE to go anywhere.

I used treats to lure him around and got him walking on the leash. 'Cause when I first brought him home, the first few walks were easy peasy. After a few though, he didn't want to leave the yard, so I had to convince him with food.

Also, he'd stop randomly in the middle of the sidewalk occasionally, and since I walk him when everyone's asleep (usually), I just dropped the leash and kept walking. He didn't want me to leave him, so he promptly ran to my side, and I gave him lots and lots of praise and we kept walking.

He got over it; he walks perfectly on the leash now. It took me a few days of working with him before he'd leave the yard without treats.

I started having those issues when he was about 10 weeks, he's now almost 5 months.
