Carpet the Stairs
If your home has slick wood stairs, consider carpeting the steps to make it easier for your dog to get up and down.
“Carpeting the steps is a really great thing,” says Monteiro. “It’s not practical for a lot of people to do a full carpet runner, but there are definitely less expensive things you can do.”
She recommends the following if a full carpet runner isn’t in the budget: no-slip strips, stair treads, or even just buying carpet squares and using double-sided carpet tape to lay them down. Anything that can be securely attached to the stairs, doesn’t present a tripping hazard, and makes the floor surface less slick will do.
