We previously had steps for our bed for our three dachshund/dachshund mix dogs. Our old boy, who is 14, is losing his sight so he was having trouble navigating the steps (which were steep) and he kept falling down them. We quickly decided to get the DoggoRamp and we are so happy that we did! We love the fact that it is a longer ramp so it has a nice, low grade. So easy for the dogs to get up and down! The railings are a fantastic safety feature and such a tremendous help. Our old boy uses the rails as a guide when going up and down -- it has been so helpful for him. I can't recommend this ramp enough! We love it so much we decided to get the couch ramp too and just ordered it today. DoggoRamps are the best!
