The Ergo Dog Steps are made with foam, easing the strain on your pet's joints that may come with traditional stairs. The gradually angled slope, slightly rounded edges, and wider landings help any dog, young or old, safely go to high spaces in your home.Pets with shorter legs, mobility issues, or old age can climb higher with ease using these stairs.
While most dog owners purchase stairs as their dog ages to help them with their back and leg problems, it's equally important to get them early in your dog's life. Many young dogs with known back issues due to their longer backs such as dachshunds, bichons, corgis can prevent injuring their back by having stairs so they don't jump up on couches and beds.
The steps are made with lightweight foam that makes carrying the stairs from room to room a breeze. The micro suede cover comes in 4 colors, making it easy to match most room decor, and zips off conveniently allowing machine washing and easy maintenance.
These steps are lightweight but very stable which is critical for dog stairs. We recommend you have a set of dog stairs wherever your dog tends to jump up. Vets recommend the best remedy for smaller pets is to train them early to use dog stairs.
The steps are nice, but the site not specify dog weight until the steps were received and the weight was noted on the packing sheet.
Our dog had back surgery and we bought these stairs and put them everywhere he used to jump. He was easily trained to use the stairs by putting treats on them.
Wrigley’s vet explained that if we had used the stairs from when he was a puppy everywhere he jumped up and down, we might have avoided the back injury.
We love this product and since we have placed them everywhere- there hasn’t been a back issue. We highly recommend these stairs.
