    My neighbor has a border terrier but does not take him out for walks. I offered to walk him but...

    when I put a leash on his collar he just rolls over on his back or lies down and will not get up, even when I give a tug on the leash. How can I motivate him to walk with me?

    I will probably be frowned upon by pet lovers for this answer, and I am one too, but you can always bribe him with a treat smile

    Well, it seems you have found out why your neighbour doesn't walk the dog.

    Yes, I must admit I'd go for the treat approach, tends to work very well with my Border. I'd use some to get him out and walking and then look to find some good walking area where there are lots of interesting smells, maybe a dog park if there's one nearby, try some games with a ball or some other throwing toy and generally try to get him into the midset that being outdoors = fun as well as some treats.
