This is Dakota, a husky pup trying to master the stairs, but this time, unfortunately the stairs won.
Though props to this little husky pup for at least getting her front paws on step 2!
Dogs and Fear of Stairs
Some dogs have a fear of going up and down stairs. This is fairly common, especially in young dogs who may not have encountered them while they were puppies.
Distract the fearful dog. Rather than making a big deal of trying to force your dog up and down the steps, you can try tricking him into going up or down by distracting him a little. Pat your hands against your legs, talk to your dog in a happy tone, and give him lots of attention.
Take a step up one step and then back down as you continue the happy talk. Sneak in a few of your dog's favorite treats here and there. Next time go up a few steps and back down. For a mild phobia, you may be able to get the dog to follow you up and down a few steps without even realizing it. If you manage to get the dog on the steps, be sure to give lots of praise and some treats. Gradually work on coaxing the dog a little further each time. (Source)
