Howdy everyone,

I just recently adopted a rat terrier/ beagle mix. The pupper is awesome, and has done great with training.

Unfortunately, he is having trouble getting back into my apartment after walks and potty breaks. This is mostly because of my apartment being on a second floor outside. After our walk, he will stop at the bottom of the stairs, and refuse to go up (he has been taught his name and 'come' pretty effectively).

In the morning when I let him out, he doesn't have much problem going up the stairs, but it seems like short potty breaks are his worst problem.

Is this an obedience issue? If not, should I be worried about a back health issue? I'm very worried he could be hurt, but not entirely sure.

Thanks everyone, let me know if I can provide any more information.
