Wally was going up stairs (I have 4-5 stairs at either end of the house) at 7 1/2 weeks. Down took a little longer. We started by me setting him on the very first step, so all he had to do was go down one. Not too bad, right? So lets try two. He was OK with 2 steps for a few days, then he was ready for 3. Once he was comfortable with three, it just took him a few days to be confident on all of them.
I do have one long set of stairs (12 or so) to the bedroom and he goes up them (slowly) at the end of the day, and then down (slowly) at the beginning of the day. Then its just the short staircase the rest of the day. He is 12 weeks old now and 20lbs.
Missing my sweet Howie every day. See you at the bridge, my love.
