Daisy has a phobia of the stairs she wont go up them or down them anyone else had this???Iv just throwing a ball up but she stays at the bottom and looks
My spoo also had a phobia with the stairs among other things... if you read my post about the snow you would crack up.. He learned that if he doesn't go up and down the stairs, he will miss all the fun we are having in the room without him. I made it a point to wrestle and play with my son. You should have seen him at the top of the stairs whining. (going through dogs head: I want to have fun too!!! What are they doing?? ohhhhh I wanna pllllaayyyyy!!!) He started coming down and up the stairs in a day!:whoo:Our little bloke so badly wanted to come upstairs with us that he has never had a problem with our stairs, it was more of a problem getting him to take it easy and use the last step rather than jumping, and STOPPING him using them when he has his cast on :rofl:.
I would try lots of really tasty treats, start at the bottom and reward as soon as she puts one paw on the bottom step and then just coax her up to the next step and reward and so on. Now if she isn't a dog that works for food this could be a little tricky!
