What can we do if our dog only walks with me, but not my boyfriend? Can someone help?

We got a sweet, 4 year old Perro de Agua Espanol (Spanish waterdog) last week. She has been very shy from the beginning, but every day she opens up more, especially on the walks. The problem is: she won't walk if my boyfriend goes out alone with her. She just lays down and looks back. He has tried with sausages, waiting for 15 minutes and recently we have started to go together and then I let myself fall behind. That works for a couple of meters until Duna stops and waits for me. Do you have any experience in this situation or some creative ideas for us what to do? She doesn't seem affraid of him, because in the house she cuddles with him and he is trying really hard to improve her trust in him, but it doesn't seem to work yet. Unfortunatly we don't know much about her situation before, just that she lived with an older lady.
