This ramp might be ok for other dogs, but our dog is a Shih Tzu and he would not come down at all - it was too steep and he would jump rather than use it. He would not go up it either; he would jump half way, then jump on the bed.
I bought this for my elderly Border Collie mix, who is about 71lbs. Her legs have been giving out on her. She wasn't so sure about it upon first use. Had to use a treat to lure her back out of the truck. My little dog, once she was used to it, ran up and down to show how it is done. I prefer the artificial grass for her comfort and grip. She had a hard time balancing, but my husband helped keep her on the ramp. It is one of the wider ramps out there. He took them on their first trip and said she did well. The ramp is a bit heavy for me, but he had no problem with it. Probably better a bit heavy than too light. Overall, very pleased.
I have been looking for a free standing ramp for almost 2 years for my little Sophie...and she loves it! due to smaller dogs being prone to problems with their joints as they age, the ramp is much better than steps or stairs...it's somewhat light in weight and very sturdy along with the carpeting which also makes it easier for the dogs to go up and down without sliding!
