Up for grabs is a stair/step that I purchased thinking it would be a good way for my dog to be able to get on and off the couch after her surgery. Wrong 🙂  She just hops up like she used to. These would be better for a smaller dog or senior who could benefit from the extra step up to about couch height. I put it together and she never once set a paw on it.

A few features:

Lightweight so it is easy for anyone young or old to move it around easily (5# or so)

Holds up to 150#

Removable carpet pads on the treads for easy washing

Height of top step is 16″, width 16″, and 22.2″ long

I was just wondering how many of us have pet stairs that we bought for our new tripawd, and are now sitting in a closet or corner, totally unused?  laughing

Otis - 106 pound lab/Dane mix, lost his right front leg to osteosarcoma on Febuary 9, 2016.  Four rounds of carboplatin completed in April, 2016.  Lung mets August 25, 2016.  Said goodbye too soon on September 4, 2016.   Lost his adopted sister, Tess, suddenly on October 9, 2016. likely due to hemangiosarcoma.  

Wherever they are, they are together.

Very cool. Thanks for letting us know.

It's better to hop on three legs than to limp on four.™

Now that you mention it, I have a ramp I bought for my SUV that I never used for Nitro; and I don’t anticipate him ever using it.

Pet Gear Tri-Fold Ramp 71 inch Extra Wide Pet Ramp Holds 200LBS

Paula

Nitro 11 1/2  yr old Doberman; right front amp June 2014. Had 6 doses carboplatin, followed by metronomic therapy. Rocked it on 3 legs for over 3 years! My Warrior beat cancer, but couldn't beat old age. He crossed the Bridge peacefully on July 25, 2017, with dignity and on his terms.  Follow his blog entitled "Doberman's journey"
