Many dog owners start looking at dog ramps for beds so that their four-legged friends can still curl up with them even if they have a difficult time climbing into bed. This is particularly true of small dogs or those that develop arthritis and have a very difficult time climbing up into a human bed, especially if it is an exceptionally tall one. The greatest majority of ramps are made for outdoor uses, although there are a few made to use indoors. In general though, if you’re looking for an easy way for Fido to get into your bed, you may have to opt for small stairs instead of a ramp.
The Pet Studio Dog Ramp / Stairs may be the best option for a dog owner looking at dog bed ramps because it offers the best of both worlds. It can be used as a ramp, or the three panels of the ramp fold down to create three stairs. This product gets rave reviews from almost everyone who purchases it.
The Solvit PupSTEP Plus Pet Stairs have side rails to make the climb safe for your dog. It will work well for small or medium dogs and is rated up to 120 pounds. No assembly is required for these sturdy steps either. They make an attractive addition to your home and when they’re not in use they can be folded down for easy storage.
One of the most unique features of the Pet Gear Pet Ramp is the carpet tread, which actually comes off so that you can run it through the washing machine when it needs to be cleaned. The bottom has rubber grips so that the ramp doesn’t move around.
If you’re looking for a thin, foldable ramp that you can take with you, the Pet Gear Small Folding Dog Ramp might be a good option. It’s very compact and has rubber grips on the bottom of it so that it doesn’t move around. The top of the ramp is also skid-proof, providing a safe climb even for arthritic dogs.
