Dear Mad­die, There must be a rea­son why Franky loves go­ing up­stairs. I won­der, what does Franky do once he is up­stairs? Does he usu­ally fol­low some­one up the stairs or is he go­ing up when no one’s watch­ing? Re­ward-based train­ing is a good place to start if you want to set some rules down for Franky. Re­ward-based train­ing in­volves tasty food treats or ver­bal praise such as “good dog!” when Franky performs the “good” be­hav­iour, for ex­am­ple stay­ing down­stairs when he’s told to “stay”. Train­ing takes a lot of per­sis­tence and con­sis­tency so it’s def­i­nitely worth­while speak­ing to your vet­eri­nar­ian or a Delta ac­cred­ited dog trainer for fur­ther ad­vice. Ef­fec­tive train­ing will be a highly re­ward­ing experience for both your fam­ily and for Franky!
