I have a 7 pound Yorkie with a ton of energy. Our house has hard wood floors and our bed is pretty high up so we have pet stairs by that and the couch.
Probably about 3 out of 4 times he just jumps right over them. I've even tried moving the steps out a little further, but he just jumps further.
He's actually made a crying/whimpering sound when hitting the ground a few times and I know that this breed often has hip problems. He's still young but I want to keep his hips healthy and I don't know how to get him to use the steps. He's not afraid of them or anything, he just doesn't think.
Does anyone have a suggestion for how I could get him to use the steps when he needs to get down off the bed/couch?
