Originally we purchased the Zinus dog stairs in X-Small for our miniature Dachshund. The stairs worked well for our dog to climb to the sofa. Soft, so not jolting, but firm enough to dash up and down the stairs (and he does). However, the x-smalls were not tall enough for our dog to reach the bed, not be any stretch. So I purchased the large stairs and they work perfect to provide our mini dachshund access to our bed. He easily climbs up and down throughout the day and night.
I have two cats who need a little bit of help getting up on the couch/bed/chair. I figured I’d start with one and if they liked it, I would get one or two more. Unfortunately, I overestimated the intelligence level of my cats. They cannot figure out how to use the steps to get onto the couch! One will sit right by the steps, and then jump up onto the couch without using them. The other one won’t go anywhere near it. I tried putting treats on the steps, figuring they would walk up the steps to get the treats…. Nope! But even though I can’t get my cats to use it, it seems like a good product. It was simple enough to put together. Its sturdy and the foam is thick and durable. It’s definitely made for cats or smaller dogs.
On the good side, steps are easy to pick up and move to different locations, cover removes easily for washing. On the bad side, the foam in the steps is quite soft and my dog seems unsure of them, even though I’ve spent a good amount of time working with him. The bottom step is also quite narrow and there’s not room for all four feet. So if you dog takes it step by step these won’t work . My dog is a senior and takes things slow. He’s around 13 pounds and about 10 inches high at the shoulders.
I have 2 of these little stairs now and I think they're great. Lightweight, easy to assemble - just plop the top stair on top and zip together. Much more affordable than some of the other pet stairs out there. I bought it for my 7lb chiweenie and 6 cats (various sizes from 7lb to 13lb)
The best I can say is that these little steps are the right height to help Marigold get onto my platform bed, but she has yet to use it. I think it's poorly made; the top step unfolds and the cover needs to be pulled up to fit over it. The spongy material is wimpy. I think ltiile wooden steps would be far better, similar to the kind you get for a toddler to reach the sink.
Easy to assemble and the perfect height for my little pup to get up on the couch. Material is very soft, too!
My 15 yr old cat has been using since we got them. Bed is high so he still has about a foot to jump up but has learned to do it. It is sturdy even though foam which is good for his arthritic legs. Very happy with purchase. Would buy again!
My cat has trouble jumping. This is perfect for her to climb into her favorite chair.
I love my new stairs. I used to have to use an old ice cooler with a towel so I didn’t slip. Now I have my own way into bed without worrying Daddy will stub his toes.
Just as described. Easy to move, soft. Helps my older cat get on and off the bed
