Sorry guys! I have been busy and forgot to update the thread
Brody's injury is healing well. It wasn't infected as I suspected and it is much smaller than it was.
Tricia, he still isn't using the steps without us putting his feet on the bottom one first. I couldn't find the sticky carpet pieces you mentioned, but we did buy a piece of carpet and covered the steps in it. Brody wants to get into the bed and we sit up there and call him, but all he does is move around his steps and keeps trying to jump without them. He can't make it that way
The only way I can get him to climb up the steps is if I get off the bed and put his feet on the bottom step, then he will climb up to the bed. Je just won't do it on his own
We were even using treats to tempt him up, starting with a treat on the first step, and then the second, and then the bed. He just doesn't get it
