Is It Safe to Own a Pomeranian in Two Story House?

I'm seriously considering buying a Pomeranian and I live in a two story house. Is it safe for small dogs go up and down stairs?

I'm sure your dog can handle the stairs, as long as you're not making it run up and down all day.

Everyone I know lives in a multistory house, and though the dogs dont normally get to go upstairs and into the bedrooms, their animals are all fine

    A puppy of any breed of dog needs to be watched on stairs until they "get the hang of it". Otherwise, stairs are generally safe for dogs (unless, of course, they insist on being underfoot when you're on the stairs). Being four-legged, they rarely if ever lose their footing. However, going up and down the stairs is a lot of work for a little dog, so try to plan things so that using the stairs is mostly optional (i.e. try to keep most of their things on the main level of the house). That way they can decide if it's worth the effort, but don't feel like they have to if they'd rather not.
