Is the dog used to steps?? Maybe that is the issue.
We put carpet on our steps so our dogs wouldn't slip nor catch their toenails in the holes in the steps. They do well with it. Old dog thinks she can jump from the top step to the ground. We encourage her to come down slowly.

Your dog will get there. Just takes time. Maybe one step at a time.

Definitely cover the steps. I made removable tread covers out of 1/4" plywood with carpet on them so there was a smooth and solid footing. Didn't bother to cover the open back. Our Springers could care less about that aspect. They just want in their house.

Mine would not go on that ramp so I finally built her a plywood ramp with carpet double the width of the camping world one for travelling then I purchased the aluminum one with the deck at the top and had 7" stairs when we get to the park for the winter.Finally it worked shes 14 now so we all just take our time with her. Just pure LOVE.

Our mail greyhound was not a fan of going up our stairs either, especially
when it was dark.
I added some marine grade white anti-skid tap to the stairs and that
helped him. I think he had trouble making out the stairs with just the black
anti-skid tap on them. Once I added the white, he is having no problem.
