Pet Gear Soft Step III Pet Stairs, 3-step/for cats and dogs up to 150-pounds, Oatmeal -
The wood 4-step pet stair offered by Solvit is solid, well-designed and useful for old or disabled pets. Users love the sturdy construction and the fact that it’s foldable and easy to store. However, some do note that the steps might be too small for big dogs.
With a size of 20"x 16" x 24" and a stair rise of 4.75 inches, this pup wood stair has a wooden frame, brass hardware, built-in side rails and carpeted steps. The weight capacity of the Solvit pet stairs is 200 lbs, and it can be folded for transport or storage. As a whole, it seems like a good, reasonably priced product, but not very suitable for bigger dogs.
