Short dogs, arthritic dogs and elderly pets often need help to get around safely. Shop our selection of dog ramps for climbing into cars, trucks and SUVs.
- As with stairs, make sure the ramp reaches high enough for your dog to get onto furniture or into the car or SUV.
- If space is an issue, choose a lightweight ramp or one that folds up. This makes storage easier.
- The ramp should have an anti-skid surface, so your dog can maneuver on it securely.
- Whether you choose stairs or a ramp, you may have to teach your dog to use them. Use positive reinforcement and rewards to train your dog. Your goal is to help him feel confident on this new apparatus. So confident, in fact, that he’ll use it even if you’re not around.
