Norman, the 150 pound, 9-month-old St. Bernard puppy from Oshawa, Ontario, Canada, is still in the process of mastering the stairs, but hasn’t quite got the knack of it yet.
“He’s scared of them because of all the wrinkles on his head fold over his eyes and he can’t see! Nor does he know where to put his giant puppy paws so he goes up and down stairs sideways,” explains his human.
Carpeting and grips on wooden stairs is recommended to help dogs be more confident navigating stairs as hardwood floors can be slippery. I have a feeling with the proper encouragement and training, Norman will find the stairs are not too much of a challenge! Not to mention that he’ll likely grow big enough to reach any stair he wants to.
