Deluxe Large PetStep Ramp
I bought this for my aging pups, one whom has a bad hind leg. I use it in the house, for them to easily go up and down the few steps from our kitchen down to the dining room and family room. I also use it to get them in and out of our SUV when going to the vet. They were reluctant at first, but after coaxing them with some treats, they took to it quickly. As one reviewer mentioned, if you aren't careful, you may accidentally pinch your fingers when unfolding the ramp. However, it takes no effort whatsoever to use it safely. I highly recommend this to pet parents with kids that need help on stairs.

We bought this ramp years ago for our black lab with bad hips to help her get in and out of our boat. It worked great! We still use it with our healthy dogs, makes it easier for them to get in and out of the boat without our assist. The hinge in the middle makes it adaptable to any dock.

Good but not great
This ramp folds in half and most of the time will pinch your fingers. It is good in theory and poor in application so if you want a really great dog ramp, buy one that extends out or telescopes. Even the telescoping dog ramp has a caveat though and it is that you must be cautious when you allow it to telescope otherwise it will telescope apart and break the pieces that keep it from becoming two pieces instead of one.

Our lab, Gracie, is older and needs a ramp to get in and out of the back of the Suburban (we can't lift her!)... At first she was timid to be on the ramp, but it has a soft rubbery surface with ridges that she can sink her claws into. Plus the ramp is really sturdy and doesn't bend or move a lot when she steps on. We've seen other ramps that don't seem as durable. This one sure has come in handy!
