So Mallie doesnt do well with the stairs on the right side of our apartment, but she does fine with the left side... The difference? The left side is carpeted all the way up. The right side, it is metal and the backs are not covered at all, so she can see thru them... so my question is, should i just accept that she doesnt like that type of stairs, or should i work with her and get her to get over the fear, as to my knowledge, she is almost a year old and these are the only stairs she has really been around. Thanks for ur advice!! :)

Lion wouldn't walk down stairs until he was 6 months old... I tried everything to get him to do it, and he wouldn't. One day he decided it wasn't scary anymore, and now he will walk down the stairs.

I have the same type of stairs leading up to my apartment.. They are concrete with no back, and there is a big gap in between each stair. I never taught either of my dogs to walk down them because I am afraid they will fall through the gaps and get hurt.
