This item works. It is strong enough for a pretty big dog. It only took a few times before my dog was not afraid to use it. However, it is cumbersome. It is light enough, but the hinge where it unfolds is stiff and it takes two hands to push it open and level it out. Sometimes it is an issue, like when you are holding on to a leash. The little plastic tab that holds the two sides together when folded snapped in half the first day of use. It is not really needed because, as I said, the hinge is very stiff and doesn't unfold easily.
I found this ramp to be just like the reviews said. I think it is very sturdy and lightweight. The surface is rough but I didn't find it too rough - good traction. Now I am using it for my tall dog who recently had a front limb amputated. It is so he can get to the back seat of my sedan so the slope is not that much. I don't know how it would be to get up into an SUV. It is a little narrow for my amputee dog but it works because the car door serves as a wall and I stand on the other edge, keeping him on track. A non-amputee probably would be fine. Overall, I find this a good product at a good price.
We like our ramp and the nonskid surface. We began training in house, laying it flat on the floor. We then transition to using the first step to our front porch, at all times using training treats ( small ones) to encourage Snickers to walk on the ramp. Again, once she was comfortable, we transition to the second porch step and then to the back of the car. The angle is steep if you would begin with our car first, so her training did the trick. Snickers weighs 60lbs, and no problems with the ramp sturdiness. She now uses it consistently!
My old boy refuses to use it. Will continue to try to train him to it for just 1 stair step, and maybe try the car again later.
I like that this product is sturdy and well designed. My dog has been having trouble going up the back stairs, and I thought this would be a good alternative, however, she is deathly afraid of the ramp, and will not go anywhere near it! after multiple attempts to coax her, she was unable to use it.
Received this package for this and finally got it out and the safety latch on the steps is broken
The advertisements foolishly only show the ramp being used in the back of big SUVs. They err by failing to show that it also works fine in side doors of smaller cars. The ramp works well for the rear passenger door of my Toyota Camry LE. It probably would work on the front passenger door, as well, but I haven’t tested that because I have never allowed my dog to sit up front. My beloved dog is an elderly black lab, so I can safely say that it is plenty sturdy. I am so glad that I bought it!
In training my lab to use the ramp, it collapsed off the trunk and she fell with it. After more attempts we saw that the ramp was slippery and now she found it very hrd to stay on it without firm holding by two people. I am now shopping for sticky carpet squares to line the ramp. We have to suceed because she is loosing power in her hind-end and cannot jump out of the car any more. Wish us luck.
We measured before we bought this in large, but somehow we did not calculate how steep the angle would be up to the back of our SUV. Our dog found it far too steep. Fortunately, we can use it to get him to the back seat area instead as the door frame edge is lower. So measure AND consider the angle that results. It is sturdy and there is a rough sandy texture for grip. Also lightweight for its size.
I ordered this ramp for my almost 10 year old Pit Bull who suffers from moderate to severe arthritis in both back legs. He has been having difficulty getting into the car for his doctor visits. Chewy ALWAYS has what we need with a GREAT selection and price ranges to choose from. This ramp is very sturdy yet not too heavy for me. It is solidly constructed and easy for my little guy to use and easy for me to lift and set up. Always very fast shipping from Chewy and as always thanks!!!
