After a lot of research I purchased this product for my 86 lb. lab/pointer mix who tore both of her rear ACL's. She no longer could easily get in and out of the car or on the furniture which she loved. I found them easy to assemble but was unsure as to whether they would really support her. Since I weigh 105 lbs. I walked on them first. They supported me with no problem. We don't have steps in the house and I had to show her how to use them but she finds them easy to use and loves them. I was going to order a ramp for the car but there is no need with these steps. They are light enough for me to carry outside and allow her to climb safely in and out of the back seat. What a wonderful product.
The product was very easy to put together. My golden weighs 63 lbs. and easily navigates into the SUV and truck cab. The width of the stairs, the carpet, and slope all make for very good stability. The stairs are light and easily carried and stored. She is so happy to be able to get in and out of the vehicles with ease.
The 2 individual steps may a bit high for smaller,or troubled, short legged pets. Perhaps a set with three, more shallow steps would be better. The carpet could be more coarse, to aid in the pets grip. I cut foam and inserted it into the cavity, to dull the "hollow" sound. Some pets may not be bothered by the sound.
The most important thing when you are looking for steps is the sufficient size of the top (platform) of each step. The second thing is the height of each step. Both my tiny Bijon and my medium size (40-lb.) dog feel comfortable on the platform of the steps. The height is good for each of them. And the top platform is even with my couch's seat cushion. This set of pet stairs is perfect for my family room. It looks attractive and well-made. The top of each step is firmly carpeted, so there's no tripping. The weave is very tight, so spots wipe off easily. It's attractive to look at. The color is neutral. It's sturdy. And it is very reasonably-priced.
It was easy to put together, I was surprised has strong it was. It supports quite a bit of weight. I've bought others and they all got broke. It would be difficult to break this one. All 3 dogs us it. Lhaso apsos about 20 - 25 Lbs.
