Dog ramps are a convenient way to ease your dog’s access to certain areas of your home – or even your car. Whether you’re caring for an aging pet in need of extra support, or a small breed dog requiring help with elevated areas, dog ramps alleviate canine mobility issues safely and effectively.
Dog ramps are excellent aids for our fur babies who needs support going up and down. These ramps are especially useful for dogs with limited mobility due to injury or old age. When you see your dog struggling to get up or climb down, it’s time for a dog ramp.
Buying a dog ramp will set you back anywhere from $40-$120. These are pre-made so you don’t have the option to customize. Your dog will simply have to make do with whatever the manufacturer made.
But why buy when you can build one? You will have the full freedom to customize the size, height, slope, and colour. Plus, you’ll be glad you did something really special for your furry friend.
