San_d:Is it safe to use staircase for gsd pups?
 
Does using staircase weaken the pasterns or wrist angulation of a growing 3 to 4 month gsd pup?

Can the use of 40 to 50 stairs (each of say 6 inch height) lead to bowed leg or joint problems?

While I wouldn't run a pup up and down stairs, they should be able to handle "normal" use of them without any concern about skeletal issues.
