We have a 4 month old Basset and her name is Daisy. Daisy is a joy. I have read alot about Bassets in the past few months, but I missed something. I recently read that i should not let my puppy tackle the stairs because it can cause problems later in life. I recently started letting her take on the stairs because she is starting to get too heavy to carry in and out, we live in a bilevel so stairs are inevitable. Could i have hurt her by letting her walk the stairs. I don't know how long your supposed to carry them up and down the stairs. Any info would be appreciated.
