Introducing your Greyhound to stairs
If your home has stairs, they may pose a challenge for your greyhound, as many greyhounds have never seen stairs before and have no idea of how to negotiate them. This can be a daunting experience, and it can take a while for your hound to become confident enough to safely walk up and down them.
Every greyhound is individual and you will find that some hounds like to go up the stairs and some hounds like to go down. Some greyhounds may go halfway up or down the stairs and then freeze, and refuse to move in either direction, and some simply won’t attempt the stairs. Whatever your greyhound’s response to the stairs, you can help them adjust to the challenge.
