Ramps For Dogs
But the fact remains.... just because your dog can jump to access things in high places, doesn’t mean he should!
Our dogs come in all shapes, sizes, ages, and health condition and depend on us throughout their lives to look out for their comfort, well-being and safety.

Ramps For Dogs - Everyday Uses:
- Getting on/off boats at mooring site where the water may be deep.
- Flotation safety devices for pools – some pet ramps convert to multiple uses.
Let's get down to the nitty gritty...
First and foremost decide which assistance your
dog needs: ramps for dogs or steps for dogs, or both. If your pet is arthritic, consider which will be the easiest
for him to navigate. Pet ramps are available with different features. Many are adjustable – telescoping.
Some can be used for both indoor and outdoor uses. Surfaces include rubberized and carpeted tread.
Indoor pet ramps and doggie steps are available with different slope grades, number of risers, and different widths to suit your dog and the intended purpose. Many are designed to fit in with your décor. Some are carpeted, some plastic, some are made with solid furniture grade wood. You can choose according to your dog’s needs and your budget.
Ramps For Dogs - Features to Evaluate:
- Safety – are the pet steps well stabilized and secure? No wobbly platforms.
- Does the dog ramp have a non-slip tread for bad weather or when wet, or stay-put feet?
- What will be the primary use – choose a product to fit the purpose whether for indoor or outdoor use.
Finally, do yourself and your back a favor – lifting a dog frequently can put a strain on you too. Seriously consider the advantages of ramps for dogs, or if your dog pal is smaller, steps for dogs might be another option depending on the useyou have in mind. Either way, everyone will benefit.
