how to make dog stair for bed | Puppy Stairs pet steps and ramps give animals the boost they need to ...
I have an old dog who has a hard time going up and down the stairs. Your ramps look good but I don't need portable. I need a ramp from the back door down four steep steps. It will probably need a turn built in or the slope will be too steep. And I would like higher rails because she wobbles and might fall off with short rails.
Any thoughts? Oh, I'm not very handy either - needs to be easy to make. Thanks!
We have a fixed ramp idea on our site at . You could add thin plywood barriers to the sides by first attaching a piece of lumber along the underside edges of the ramp.
To add a bend/elevate the ramp, you could perhaps combine that with the ideas which involve a platform and triangular sides. If you do some sketching and put some thought into the slope and lengths needed, you will likely be able to figure this out. Just remember to not get in a hurry and measure as many times as you need to before you cut your lumber. (P.S. One way to become handier is to just do it - you will learn from any mistakes you make, as Stan and I have done. Also, remember that dogs do not expect perfection, just something that works...)
Visitors, have any of you made a ramp with a bend in it, or do you have suggestions for Laura as to how she could easily make a ramp with such a bend? Simply add them in the Comments section.
Good luck! Please let us know/send a photo of your results if you can. Jo
So what makes these stairs so unique? First, the foam density is an exemplified feature. Royal Ramps offers 1.5 pounds per cubic foot of Industrial-Grade, high-density foam. This allows for extra firm support, with 50% more density than many other products; however, the foam itself is still lightweight enough for you to move the dog stairs around. Furthermore, the life cycle of the foam has been constructed to last the lifetime of your pet. Other products typically only have 1 pound per cubic foot, commercial grade packaging foam. When constructed from this material, your stairs will break down faster, as this type of foam is not intended for long term, repetitive use. It will crush down more easily, and once this has occurred, the stairs cannot provide safety or security for your pets. Furthermore, many other brands of stairs use materials that are cheap to produce, but overly flimsy and lightweight, so that they too easily shift around, which could be dangerous for your pet; or, the materials are so heavy that you could hurt your own back or neck moving them into place.
