Very easy to assemble. I was glad I read the other reviews first, the person who recommended guiding your dog up and down patiently for a few days really paid off. My fat little mini dachshund couldn't make the second step and balked at coming down, however, after three days of holding her by the middle and boosting her up and steadying her down, she now handles it with ease. Treats were the reward, of course! Now she's getting up and down on the sofa without any problem and I don't have to worry about her injuring her legs or back.
I purchased several sets of these pet stairs for my young cat, who has hind leg problems. He uses them religiously and is able to get up on the couch, chair and bed just like the other cats do. He is unable to jump up and without the stairs it would really cut down on what he can do. They have helped him so much and I couldn't do without them. I highly recommend them and they are so easy to put together.

My 16-year-old, arthritic, slightly-overweight cat took some coaxing to get used to these (about 3 assisted lifts), but now climbs up onto the couch regularly--previously I had to lift her onto the couch and her jump down off the couch was hesitant and probably painful (for me it sure was!). The wide stair width and slight incline on the steps is a brilliant design and makes it much easier for her, as does the carpeted step surface. There was no off-gassing stink from the materials, they were easy to assemble, and for me this Easy Step has (almost) given me back the cat I had a few years ago. I can't recommend it highly enough, at least for elderly arthritic much-loved cats.
We have a 17 year old cat. The steps were a bit puzzling to him at first. After guiding him up and down them a few times he started using them. The steps have been wonderful for him. He can now get on and off the bed or couch without us worrying if he will break a hip. The steps are easy to assemble, lightweight to move about, but sturdy at the same time. Perfect for our situation, hope it is for others as well.
My cat suffered an injury and was unable to jump up to her food dish. These steps solved the problem and worked great. It took a couple of days for her to trust them, but now she runs up and down with ease.
These pet stairs are very well made. They were easy to assembly even though I didn't follow the directions. They are shorter and wider than the old stairs we had. The tiniest of our dogs uses them easily. I was pleasantly surprised that the carpeting on the treads is attached with velcro so it can be removed and cleaned.
I purchased these steps for my Yorkie-Silkie who weighs 21 pounds. My dog used them without any problem, but with a little treat coaxing. As she accepted them so well, I purchased another order and use them upstairs by the bed. One is on linoleum with a throw rug and the other on carpeting with a throw rug. The rugs add stability when she runs up and down the steps. I would recommend these pet steps to others. Overstock also has the best price on these steps, by the way.
