Dogs can't get traction on anything slippery its just wing it and run. Try laying carpet down of they are carpeted. And work with your furry friend on overcoming that new found fear. My baby has the same problem. I try to make game out of it.
I'll run up the steps because I know she will playfully chase me. When she successfully goes up and down the stares i reward her so she knows its okay to be on them
