Give older pets a break from steep climbs and jumps with this durable folding pet ramp. A rubber grip on the bottom keeps the ramp in place, while the skid-proof coating keeps your pet stable, and it folds down so you can take it on vacation....more
I searched 3 pet supply stores and about a dozen online sites and found this one to be the best value for the money. Many pet ramps are designed for cars and are too short to work for getting a dog into the back of a pickup. This one works great, is lightweight, and folds for easy storage. I have a very timid 11-year old collie/shepherd and the first time I had her use it I put her leash on and guided her up. After that she went up on her own. I'm very pleased.

Please tell us about the quality of the product. I can see that sandpaper might wear down over time but I would think you could just glue more down if needed.
This is perfect for our older dog getting into our SUV. It is compact and quality seems to be good. I have only used it for about a month, but it doesn't seem like it will fall apart easily. I practiced using the ramp on a flat surface with the dog first. Hesitant at first but got the hang of it.
Good - Compact, works as intended, light, sturdy enough for my 65lb dog.
Bad - Not anything significant - Uses skateboard grip on the surface, pretty rough, have to be careful if you have leather. I wrap mine in a blanket. No carrying handle...but it still light enough so u can grab it on the side.

This ramp is easily deployed and stays in place when it's used. I like the tri-fold feature too. The squarish space it takes up in the back of the car is far preferable to the elongated space needed for a bifold. The grippy surface has the texture of a very coarse sandpaper which my dog doesn't like walking on for some reason. But what really freaks him out is the bounciness of the ramp. He gets halfway up and jumps off when it begins to sag under his weight (he's 60 lbs and I use it on the rear deck of my Subaru Legacy wagon). So while this plastic ramp's hollow construction makes it light and portable, heavier dogs might push its limits. It seems wide enough, though.
Aside from the ramp itself, online ordering was easy and it was shipped immediately. I got it within a couple of days - thank you for the prompt service!

My 10-year-old golden retrieve has trouble getting up on our bed where she insists that she sleep at night. Although she doesn't like to use the ramp, we can lure her up with dog treats. It has prevented her from injury plus it's very sturdy and has a rough surface that gives her good footing. We also use it for our SUV where she has difficulty. The only reason I gave this 4 stars is that it's a little heavy and has no carrying handle which would really help since we take it from the house to the car with some frequency.
When the item arrived, I was somewhat prepared for the abrasive non-slip surface from reading other reviews, but it would have been much too rough for my senior cat's paws. I came up with an extremely easy (and inexpensive) fix by purchasing one yard of 72" wide felt. Cutting it into one foot x 72" strips makes three covers for the surface for under $5! And the felt adheres securely to the abrasive surface without any fasteners necessary. I did purchase a strip of sticky back velcro, which was used on the back side at the top and the top of the felt just so the felt wrapped around and was even more secure. When you fold the ramp, you just need to lift the felt off, fold loosely, and place between the folded sections (next to an abrasive surface so it doesn't slip out . . .) Now it's absolutely perfect!

Please tell us about the quality of the product. Good quality other than I can hear particles rattling around inside the plastic
Could this ramp be used to place over steps on a deck to prevent the dog from having to use the steps to get into the yard?talkinglikeacat on Mar 3, 2014Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Thank you for contacting us talkinglikeacat. Placing the ramp on top of steps could be slippery. There is nothing to tether the ramp to, and it could move while your pet is using it. Please let us know if you have any further questions.overstockcustomercare1 on Mar 17, 2014
