Andie is almost 6 months old now and has yet to go upstairs.
I have put treats and favorite toys on the stairs just out of reach of his stretch with back feet on the floor. Just once did he put his back feet on the first step. I tried taking his food upstairs but he got so upset that II was concerned it would cause an upset stomach.
There are 3 steps to get on the back porch which cause no problem. We took Andie to a park which has some wide steps going down to the river. Andie had no problem going up or down them
Does anyone have any suggestions as to how I can get him to go upstairs? (I have been sleeping on the living room couch for the past 3 1/2 months with Andie in his crate next to me and I would like so much to sleep in my bed again,)
UPDATE April 25, 2021
The stair treads arrived a couple of days ago but we haven't had a chance to install them.
Last night Otis painstakingly coaxed Andie upstairs one step at a time. It took quite some time to get him all the way up but when he was finally there he had a great time exploring. Coming down was VERY quick, so quick it scared me.
This morning Otis quickly coaxed Andie upstairs. : )
Otis leashed Andie for the trip down to keep him from flying down.
