My almost 1 year old German Shepherd has a fear of steps, and he has to use them to get in and outside.... I have tried everything I can think of to get him to be ok with them... but I dont know what else to do, so any suggestions would be greatly appreciated! I have tried bribing, carrying him, helping him up and down them, etc nothing has worked... he is refusing to come up them right now, it is freezing cold and both other dogs are in and he keeps barking to come in, but I open the door and he peeks his head in, but then darts away...almost like a game... I usually get the leash and walk him up them, but he usually runs from the leash too (again I think a game) because once he is on it he is fine but I don't feel like chasing him around out in the cold and snow. And this gets hard to do when the kids are up. There are only 1 step up onto a small "platform" and then 2 steps up into the kitchen... I don't know what to do, I am at my wits end! Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
