I may be purchasing a trinity style house in Manayunk. The price and location are right, and it has a big backyard (for the city, that is). My only issue is the trinity style curved staircases. They aren't "spiral" staircases, but they do twist a bit.

I have a corgi and he is fine with stairs (he tackles the steep stairs at my apartment no problem). I was just wondering if anyone has any experience with this?

The stairs are carpeted so I know that will help for grip.

I mean, if need be I could always carry him up with me when I go to bed at night because he only weighs 25 pounds, but I would rather not.

People find trinity stairs awkward and claustraphobic because we are big and tall but a dog that is only a few inches off the ground probably wouldn't notice any difference. It's a shame you have to keep them carpeted but i guess that is a must for your dog's sake.

We lived in a trinity in CC with our 90 pound German Shorthaired Pointer, he never seemed to care, but he was a little slow and cautious on the way down!
