I just wanted to tell you not to worry about HD and stairs. HD is genetic disease and stairs have no influence on HD. My dog had grew up on stairs and his hips are great. And now I have a puppy that is 5 months old and he's on stairs from his 8th week. I just watched him few days to make sure he learns how to go up and down and make sure he doesn't fall. As Spun Gold said, just keep him from jumping from high places and jogging.
My advice- don't be so protective to him. Play with him as much as you can, not all thing will be ideal. Enjoy with him and don't worry so much! I bet he's going to be one great and happy puppy! Past things we can't change we can only do our best for the future... This puppy is whole new person so forget all about others and concentrate on him! I wish you all the best and can't wait to see this gorgeous fellow!
