What did it for my pup when she was younger was going on a "pack walk" with another older dog. She just naturally followed and associated it with great fun. This was basically just up and down my driveway but she seemed to "get it" from then on. As far as steps, I've always just carried mine on and off the bed, but I placed one of my sofa cushions on the floor in front of a sofa with the legs removed, and she uses it to hop onto the sofa. I didn't have to show her. Maybe you can transition to the steps from that. I put throws and sheets on both the sofa and the cushion to keep them from getting too dirty.
