I have a slat wood landing on my outside steps that my bulldog refuses to walk on, so I have a problem getting him to use the steps to go out.Any ideas that might help?

you might consider encouraging her nicely with either toys or food, whichever it is best motivated by. that method works with many dogs.

Overcoming resistance for anything takes times and patience. You might have to just sit down on the slats and wait. Encourage your dog to come to you with treats and praise. Keep doing this over and over and for as long as it takes the first time. Also try putting a towel over the entire wood so as not to see. If your dog will walk over, leave in place for many days. Then try folding back just a very small corner to start and keep folding back more of the covering. A heavy towel is good to not be able to feel the wood either. Good Day~
