Dog stairs and dog ramps give our dogs an easier way to get up and down from the bed or sofa if they are disabled, a small dog or an elder dog.
As our dogs get older, it gets harder on their joints for them to jump and/or climb onto their favorite spot on your bed or couch. Jumping down can cause injuries.
I noticed my Toby, a black lab, started limping sometimes, after jumping down off our bed when he got to be older. Now, our Claire is getting older and she’s having trouble jumping down off the bed.
Dog stairs are a wonderful idea to give your beloved dog a little comfort and relief. It helps them keep their independence and continue to reach sofas, beds and more.
After all, what makes our pets happiest is when they can be right there with us.

What To Look For When Buying Dog Stairs
When you set out to get some pet stairs for your dog, it seems like an easy enough job, right?
But soon you realize that there are a few things you need to think about.
It’s not a complicated job, don’t worry about that. But you do want to think about where you’ll be using the dog stairs. And you want to consider the size and age of your dog, too.
Take a little bit of time before you settle on a set of dog steps, to think about your dog’s needs as well as those of your family and your home.
Here are a few questions to ask yourself:
- How much space will you have available for the steps?
- Are they for the living room, family room or bedroom? This might affect your choice of style.
- Will the dog stairs be used outdoors? This will affect what kind of material you want the steps to be made of. There are nice dog stairs for indoor and outdoor use too.
- What material would be better for you? Finished wood or sturdy and easy to clean plastic?
- How much does your dog weigh? Is he a large breed or a small dog? This might affect how many actual steps there should be and how far apart they are, not to mention how sturdy you need it to be.
- Do you want something portable or will the dog stairs be treated as a piece of furniture and blended into your decor?
