When I had to add a Box Spring to my bed it added 9" of height. So the 3 step stairs I had were no longer high enough for my fat little toy chihuahua to get into bed. I've always just purchased those horrible 3 step plastic or thin wood pet stairs with the faux sheepskin covers. Always fixing them putting them back together after patching them up. Impossible to vacuum all the pet hair too. I read the reviews on these one stood out the most they're foam if you trip over them if you fall they would soften it because they are foam. The Suede cover is beautiful while being simple to vacuum. These will last forever all my dogs use them all there way up to a Lab. I'm going to replace all the other stairs with these. Well worth the money.
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.
While a useful item, my dog is terrified of the ramp. He's a big dog, under the max weight limit for the ramp, but it bows slightly when he steps on to it, so he jumps off afraid its going to give way on him. I don't think it would, but he's not taking any chances!
