Bet he is afraid. It can take a lot for a dog to show overt fear. Balking is showing fear. If you showed a behavior expert videos of his behavior with fireworks and such perhaps he would see signs. Sometimes dogs seem to be ignoring things that terrify them.

A baby dog needs very short walks anyway, try walking him down the driveway and home several times in a row practicing good leash manners. Once that is easy go a few feet further each time in every direction.

My dogs behave better going home too but it's because they have to smell and see everything new that's happened since yesterday. Going home it is old news. Haven't tried the drop off walk!
