Q&A: What dog breeds are good with climbing stairs?

Question by : What dog are with ?
My mom has always wanted a dog. The problem is, we live in a townhouse with three floors, and we've heard that all those can hurt some kinds of ' hips.
So, are there any breeds of dogs which are okay with stairs? No teacup breeds, please. (We have young kids in the house, and while they aren't ill-meaning, they are a bit clumsy.) Also, if possible, dogs who are known to have calm dispositions and long life spans.

Best answer:

Answer by mithaca
medium to large mixes, this will take the genetic side of hip problems, and medium to large dogs are for stairs. buy a lab mix 10-13 years of pleasure, smart, calm disposition, if a mix not as many gene problems. do your research that's all. the worst thing is to buy a dog and then get rid of it

    My dogs do just fine with stairs.
    The only concerns I would have is a large breed *puppy* going up and down those stairs (could possibly harm their growing joints, but should be fine with stairs later on in life).
    Or long-backed breeds -Basset Hounds, Dachshunds, Corgis etc.

    Other than that, I’d say you’ve got a pretty wide range of breeds that’ll be just fine with stairs.

    -btw, there are no “teacup” breeds. Anything labelled as teacup is an ill-bred runt. AKC has no listings for any “teacup” dogs. You may have meant toy breeds?

    I did not say that you cannot teach a long-backed breed to do stairs. I simply stated that they would be at higher risk for harm from excessive *improper* use of stairs. I have met my share of doxies that have little to no use of their back ends, it is simply precaution.
