I think if she is still little it may be too high a jump down.
When Henry was a pup, I blocked off all the stairs, and discouraged him from going down. The couch had the little staircase for him to use to go down.
A few times that he did go up the stairs, he would wimp and bark cause he could not get down.
Even today at just over 2 yrs he's always very careful going down the stairs.
I trained him this way because I had read in a dog book that these little guys will sometimes blow off the last 2 steps for a big jump and can get hurt.
So it was really my doing.
Get her a little staircase, it'll be better in the long run.
