I need to know how to safely teach my puppy how to walk down stairs. My biggest fear is that he may injure himself.
Baron is almost 5 month’s old he weighs 50 lbs. Any suggestions?
Rottweiler puppies are big and heavy, and they can definitely be clumsy while growing!
The earlier they learn to deal with obstacles such as stairs the better. As your pup is 5 months old he’s probably a big boy, so you want to start with the shallowest, widest steps that you can find. Let him go up and down them regularly and then graduate to more, and steeper steps.
Most pups manage just fine as long as you give them time to build up their courage and tackle them their own way, so I wouldn’t worry too much about this.
Best of luck!
