I have an older mastiff who is Mr. Popularity at the local feed store. Everyone was so disappointed to hear he couldn't climb into the truck anymore, and I didn't like the sad look in his eye when he couldn't pull himself up into the truck. He weighs nearly 200#, so I needed something substantial and this ramp is IT. I like the non-slip surface. The wider area makes sense for my big boy, so he isn't as nervous climbing up it. I also like that it has its own supports and doesn't rely on clamps to stay in place. This is the safest best choice for my big hearted fella. It isn't exactly light weight, but I'd be afraid of something too flimsy, but it folds up neatly enough to fit in the truck. Hercules is pleased with the purchase, too. We just got it, so I can't speak to the durability of the product yet, but it looks sturdy enough for the job it has to do, and that usually means a longer life.
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.
I bought this ramp after researching it and many others on other websites. This ramp was the best value with the weight rating I needed. It is sturdy enough for my 64 LB Olde English Bulldog, but light enough for me to handle by myself! It is very easy to clip in and secure so that it remains steady while my girl climbs in and out. She climbs the ramp easily after some practice runs with lots of treats for encouragement! I am very happy with this ramp!
Sturdy ramp that was fairly easy for our ailing older Yorkie to learn to use. The carpet needs to be a little thicker because she does still slip and you can feel the problem due to the slope of the ramp. But we are using it and it is helping. This was the best choice of the ramps due to having carpet, which should be slightly thicker. I would still buy it again for our needs. It stays in the bedroom so she can get on and off the bed but we can easily move it where it is needed.
