hello and thank you for teh welcome

we are getting there slowly, as i have found out the poor big lad has never seen stairs before, he went up yesterday and wouldn;t come down, the wife isn;t big enough to help him either. he was stuck there for an hour. but we'll get there.

he still isn't answering to his name, so i may change it I prefer Hamish, but we will see how he goes over the next few weeks

Hello and welcome, we have re-named a couple of dogs ( rescue dogs that had names similar to our dogs ) and they get the idea very quickly.

We adopted a German Shepherd years ago who had been owned by a Patistani family. He couldn't understand a word of English when we got him but we renamed him as we didn't know what he had been called before. He also soon learnt basic commands in English. He was thought to have been about 6 years old when we rescued him so not a young dog. It didn't take more than a few weeks and I don't remember it being a major problem. Hamish is a great name.

About the stairs thing, although non of our own dogs have got marooned upstairs a friend's dog did. I was looking after her and she went go upstairs and was too afraid to come down. She lived in a bungalow. Unfortunately she was so scared that she peed all over my landing carpet. I got her down by putting her on her lead which must have given her a sense of security and she followed me down again.

Can we see a photo of the lad?

Good luck

Welcome to the forum shuttlep. You've a lovely big boy there. If any of my deerhounds won't do stairs I kind of sling him over one hip and hold tight to the handrail as I carry him down. It doesn't look very elegant but it gets the job done. :cheer: They seem to prefer stairs with carpet on them but as luck would have it mine are all bare wood. I hope Punch-Hamish gets the hang of it soon.

he is slowly getting the hang of stairs, but i am now thinking it isn;t such a bad thing if he never goes up stairs. he's big and if i find him on the bed there just won;t be enough room for anyoen else
