It took him a few days to realize that he could actually go down them all by himself now he's a pro Good luck
Same thing here, Lucy would not go down them. Just bark and cry at the top of the stairs. I started from the bottom and took her up 2 stairs and back down with a treat. Then 3 stairs and back down with a treat and so on. I just had to give her a gentle tug on her leash to get her to do it. Now she's fine with them.
