The stairs are beautiful, but get the runner. As our beloved pit max aged, he slipped down our hardwood stairs twice (like the whole way down). After the 1st time, we bought a runner, but didnt get it installed before the 2nd accident. After that he wouldnt go near the stairs and about a year later his hips went and he passed. Granted, he was 13, but those falls down the stairs didnt help an old dog.

How to Build Dog Stairs for Beds
Before purchasing dog stairs, you should first measure the furniture (sofa, bed, etc.) your dog needs access to, which will help you determine the correct size needed. We recommend purchasing dog stairs that measure slightly lower than the desired piece of furniture your dog will climb onto.This month only, we are also waiving shipping fees for dog stairs and ramps customers never pay sales tax. So cruise through the store and select the perfect product for your needs. If you need some extra help, for advice!As with most new tasks, it may take some time and positive reinforcement to help your dog become accustomed to using the stairs or ramps. Gently coax your dog up and down the steps and ramps with appetizing treats. With regular practice, your dog should become more comfortable using the pet ramp or stairs. 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.
