Default Jumping off the bed!

Hi all,

Beverly is pretty small, only 5 pounds, and is very dainty. I have a staircase for her leading up to our bed and she always uses it to get up. But she refuses to use it to get down. I don't blame her, it looks really scary from her perspective. I am so afraid she is going to hurt herself leaping off the bed. We do have carpet, so that at least helps. She hasn't had luxating patella issues, but I want to avoid it or other injuries. Do any of your dogs use stairs to get down? How can I help her?

Thank you!

I'd get her up on the bed, with some yummy treats. If you need to, get a leash on her,and gently lure her down the steps. Do this several times over several days and maybe she'll get the message?

I know this thread is old, but I just wanted to chime in. I surrounded all sides of my bed with those foam floor tiles that go together like puzzle pieces. I just ordered a solid neutral color. This way there is cushioning if someone jumps off the bed.
