Sylphide was fearless about our stairs, Shrek was terrified of them.

We encouraged him to go both up and down by carrying all the way except:

first for the last step, having him take the last step up or down himself
then, making that two steps,
then, three
all this over about a week or ten days.

Suddenly, one day he did it himself and races up and down since then.

Thanks you. That sounds like a great idea. I will try again first thing tomorrow morning when he is really hungry.

Your idea is working. Topper went down the last three stairs to the staircase this morning. You could see the struggle deep within him, but he was able to do it. Then he went back and then back down and then back up and then -- well you get it. Just 3 stairs but a very big step. Thanks.

I'm so glad you found the right little guy for you and your family! Congratulations!! 
 
As for stairs, Beastie goes up stairs, but refuses to come down. 

I guess we've got some work to do.

Thank you. I am really delighted with our new family member. And so happy the two malts really, really like each other.
