My dog refuses to walk up the stairs

  1. You have to physically show him. You can’t stick a dog at stairs he’s never used before and expect him to know how to use them because your showing him a treat. He’ll need a-lot more than 20 minutes of your time.

  2. If it's possible to pick him up and carry him just a few stairs up, facing down, hopefully he'll be willing to walk just a couple stairs down to "safety". From there it'll just be time. Lots of encouragement and he'll learn. Place HIGH value treats just a couple stairs up. Like get a fast food burger, put it on the stairs just out of reach. So he only needs to put his paws up one or two steps to get it. Repeat.
