With time your dog will find the cross braces and learn to use them.

Our ramps are available in black and white for most sizes. White is more expensive then black. If you want 500 blue pet ramps. We can have material made to order. If you only need one or two spray paint will work.
Can I use your ramp for something besides pets?
Sure! Just don’t exceed the weight limit, or use it in an unsafe manner (They are NOT designed for skateboarding stunts, etc!). All ramps are made for use up to 125 lbs animals.
Can I use a ramp in a pool?
Absolutely! We actually have a customer who purchases our ramps for her ducks. Duck feet are made of delicate cartilage that can be damaged by rough surfaces such as gravel, concrete or metal mesh. Once damaged, they develop the duck equivalent of boxer’s cauliflower ear. In some cases crippling them for life.
The end of the ramp does have a tendency to float. We recommend filling a sport sock full of clean aquarium gravel or sand, tying it securely and laying it across the bottom of the ramp to prevent floating.
Is the ramp waterproof?
Our ramps can be hosed, washed, rinsed, left in the rain and tucked into the pool. Exposure to chlorine and direct sunlight over time will eventually discolor the ramp.
How do I clean the ramp?
It’s 100% waterproof! Just hose it off or give it a wipe with a damp rag, and you’re good to go!
What if the ramp is to steep?
It may be best if you don’t use it. If you need just a little less angle you can bolt a 2 X 4 or a 4 X 4 to the end.
