although they haven't mastered using the stairs, my mini dachshunds love it and manage to leap up to the top deck w/o trouble. none of my dogs have used the lower part of the dog house though. the quality of the product is great and has actually held up against the rain we've had recently. one warning... when you're moving it from one place another... pick it up from the bottom... i once picked it up by the top rail and it came off. it was very easy to put back in place, but i suggest adding some wood glue if you don't want it to come apart. anyway, once you train your dog to sit inside or take the stairs to the top deck... i'm sure your pooch will love it just as much as ours.
If you're on the fence on this house.. don't be! Just buy it! This house was perfect for my two pitbull mixes. I bought two of these houses because my little princess Sandy (30lbs) hates sharing a house with her adopted brother Baxter (65lbs) so two houses were a must. Baxter chews up everything! His padding, his toys, and every single house we have purchased for him as well as Sandys. I picked this one because of the reviews and decided to give it a shot. Sandy loved it right away and laid in it while I put it together. Baxter took about about a day or so to accept the new house and we watched him try to take a bite out of the side wall and he gave up seconds later. We've had the houses for a few weeks now and I'm excited to say.... I haven't had had to clean up chewed up dog house pieces at all!!! Hopefully this will be the last time I need to buy houses for a very long time!
