If your doggie is having problems getting on and off the sofa or bed, or maybe he can’t get in and out of your car like he used to, then you should consider getting him some doggie steps, or maybe a doggie ramp.
Of course, if he does suffer from joint pain (or hip dysplasia, canine arthritis, etc.), then we highly recomend our Liquid Glucosamine For Dogs. (In fact, it’s great for dogs of all ages.)
Even if he’s not having trouble yet, it’s still a good idea to have him use these mobility aids for dogs from an early age, as it will not only prevent possible injuries, but also save all that wear and tear on his joints, which he’ll thank you for when he gets older.
So, let’s take a look at some of the most popular doggie steps first:
|Pet Gear Easy Step II||Solvit PupSTEP Plus Pet Stairs||Brinkmann Pet Deluxe Pet Steps – 3 Step|
Let’s move on to some ramps for dogs now:
|Mr. Herzher’s Smart Ramp||Solvit 62320 Deluxe XL Telescoping Pet Ramp||Petstep PetSTEP Folding Pet Ramp|
Both steps and ramps have their advantages and disadvantages, which is why it’s often best to buy a set of each.
However, we realize this can be an added expense, or may you don’t have the space to store both, so we’ve also found a great product that can be used as both steps and a ramp.
It’s called the Pet Studio Pine Frame Dog RampSteps, 3 Step and it may just be the solution you’re looking for.
What we suggest you do is check out each of the above products and:
- Read the product details carefully to make sure that it is rated for your dog. And remember to allow for his ultimate adult weight, and not only his current weight.
- Read the reviews left by other customers, as these may well give you a better idea of whether the product is suitable for your particular doggie.
And finally, if you have a black belt in DIY, you might like to build this charming and practical doggie steps and bed combo.
Seriously, isn’t this cute?
