Teaching a dog to climb stairs

my Dog (2 years old) cannot climb stairs. Hes scared and when he does try he always keep one paw on the ground (stretches up)

Is there anyway to actually teach him to climb stairs?

Im going away for 4 days in the near future (posted another one about boarding kennels) and my mum would be able to look after him but she lives in flats where theres 3 flights of stairs and no lift.

ive tried putting treats on each step but that doesnt work. the furthest he has gotten is 5 steps up but then turned around and jumped landing hard

Anyway to teach a dog to climb stairs quickly and safely?
