We just adopted Hazel and she is a sweetie. She is two and has been in a kennel for a year and half. She is attempting well, but doesn’t know how to jump in the bed. I’m not sure if steps are the answer or a ramp. Sorry first day so really open for some guidance.
Hi Hazel & Family, welcome. We left your post here because it relates so much to this topic, but please consider starting a new topic here so we can help you better and follow along with your journey on 3. Congratulations on adopting her!
I think the answer really depends on how much room you have. Stairs are a more compact solution but she’ll likely need more training than a ramp. See our posts about this:
See you in your new topic, and thanks!
