This is Jack. Jack is also a staffie. Jack doesn't have arthritis but we do have hard floors and he too loves jumping on and off the sofa. Jack doesn't like being left out so we decided to do some training to use the steps as a prevention. This is his first go at the steps and is a totally uncut version! You will see he is rather enthusiastic about working out how to earn a treat by trying to sit on the steps! Small steps, no luring but instead, shaping the behaviour and rewarding each step along the way. Time and patience is crucial. We want him to love using the steps and we do that by making it feel wonderful and rewarding to do so.
