Tiled Stairs & slipping

Post by jessieee91 on Wed Jun 24 2015, 10:23

Hey guys!

In need of some advice. I've just managed to get my 8 week old puppy to go up the stairs and now going to attempt to get her to start going down the stairs!

the only issue is all our floors are tiled, including the steps so i'm just really worried as there wont be any grip that she will slip over/down stairs and hurt herself.

Does anyone know what I could do to prevent this? Puppy socks? Tongues Its a rented house so i cant exactly re-floor the stairs either Sad

Any tips would be much appreciated!! Thanks! Big Grin

Just take the stairs one at a time if she slips she will more than likely correct herself but id hold your hand as close to the collar as possible . Have u thought abt small rubber mats too to place on each stair and can be removed afterwards alternatively a rubber doormat cut into sections would work just as well Smile

Ah yes, rubber mats would be a good idea! For the time being whilst she is learning I dont think it will be that bad but its when she gets a bit older and starts running up and down is when i'm going to worry. I've fallen down them myself and they bl00dy hurt! Tongues

On tiled stairs in particular in wet weather id keep her on the lead i have smooth concrete stairs that are a nightmare in wet weather.

What about that mesh looking underlay that you get to stop rugs slipping?
