Dog will not walk on grass in backyard

Hi, I just purchased a new house with a small fenced in backyard. My dog will not willingly walk out on the grass on his own and will run back to the deck when I use treats to lure him into the grass. I have tried playing fetch with him out there but it does not last long before he retreats to the deck. Has anyone else ever had this issue? He does not hesitate on any other grass. Could it be something the previous owners treated the lawn with? They had a dog as well. Thanks for any suggestions...

Not sure which country you live in, if australia there could be snakes toads ants etc Yes there could be pesticides, is there any way you can find out what the previous owners used? Hose the lawn lots if you think its pesticide & put socks & or boots on your dogs feet. Theres quite a range of dog socks available.
