Guest posted a topic in Training and Behavior discussionHi Greyhound lovers, Help:) Looking for some advice. I recently adopted a beautiful 5 years greyhound, Pluto, brought him home on Saturday to where I live on the beach directly off Pacific Coast Highway. He had been doing great the first few days, adapting to the condo, the beach and everything new. Until yesterday. He learned the stairs that go up and down to my condo entrance right away, but since yesterday, all of the sudden, he refuses to go up them. And its the only way in and out of my condo. And the only way he can get to the street (PCH) or anywhere else to the go to the bathroom. I help him up one foot at a time, but once we get to the top he immediately pulls hard to get back down to the condo. I really don't think it is the stairs, I think he has become terrified of the traffic on PCH. As he will gladly go up and down the stairs to the beach on the other side of my building. But now he refuses to go up and down from the condo or relieve himself alongside the road on PCH where the cars are driving by. He is super afraid. If I could take him to the beach every time to go to the bathroom, it would be fine. But I can't as the tides are not always low enough. Which means if he does not go alongside the road, he does not go. Its been since yesterday at 6:30pm since he went to the bathroom. I'm worried. Any advice on this? Any thoughts welcome. Thanks so much. Joe
