Just keep taking him outside to do his business. No need to take him for walks yet. Let him right back in when he's done. Gradually, he'll stay out longer and longer. He'll eventually love to go out. My puppy was the same way. It took him 2-3 months before he decided he loved it outside. Just be patient. If he shows fear of an item outside, it helps to walk up to it and touch it yourself, while telling him how cool the item is. He'll then have more courage to investigate the object himself and become comfortable with it in time.
