Dog puts the brakes on and won't walk forward much of the time, sometimes she just lays down.

I end up coaxing and tugging her (gently and sometimes it's a long, slow process)

Advice?

4 1/2-5 months. Toy breed (a puppy but I understand they are 'mature' at 6 months in toy breeds)

She will walk for extended periods, she just has 6-10 stubborn moments in a 30 minute walk

How long have you had her? What else is going on when she lays down? Is there traffic, other dogs, loud noises, lots of people?

I really doubt she's being randomly stubborn. Something is going on that scares her. I would get some really high value treats and just keep feeding her treats to keep her walking. Try to figure out what is bothering her and work to desensitize her to that.
