I will be getting my first GSD in a couple of months. I know it is kind of soon to be worrying about it but i'm trying to do as much research as possible right now so I will at least have a good foundation to start on when I bring him home.
His crate will be in my room upstairs and I'm sure I will have to carry him up and down them for a while so he can go outside. Is there any tips on how to help him get used to going up and down the stairs? Or should I only carry him a few times and just let him figure it out on his own time?
