Dogs don't quite get it ... -
By: doggiemama46 from Dallas, TX
Dogs are hesitant to use the pet steps. Cats, one of which has only three legs, do seem to get what to do. Problem for dogs, I believe, is the fabric, which is somewhat slippery. I expected it to be a tightly-fitting and substantial knit, but dogs can't be sure-footed on it, so they're not as likely to use it.

Not good for a big dog, too soft . It sinks and scares the dog, steps should be wider.
Not Workable for Large Dogs -
By: Gr8saboo from Muskegon MI
In the picture the steps seem larger and my Boxer/Lab could not feel steady on it. It may support 100 lbs but I found it unworkable with my large dog. The return was smooth and it may be very workable for small and mid-size dogs! I would not recommend for larger dogs
Stairs To Steep -
By: ARVCRV from San Diego, CA
These stairs were advertised as good for older and small dogs. The are far too steep for small dogs and especially small, older dogs. Orvis carries many great products and I am a consumer of their dog products.
Not suitable for 70 Lb dog -
By: MyDogRocks from Northern California
I do not agree that this product is suitable for dogs up to 110 Lbs. I bought these steps for my 75 Lb lab mix, and placed them next to my bed with web netting below the steps to minimize slippage on the hardwood floor. The steps are foam and the structure is not rigid enough to support my dog's weight, and she is extremely reluctant to even try. The two times she did with my help, the steps folded and moved, and she got caught between the steps and bed. So I am returning this. I am disappointed because I really like Orvis products; my dog's bed is an Orvis, and she absolutely loves it!!! But these steps are a bust for her.... I can see where they would work for little dogs though.
Good product -
The pet steps are user friendly and it took my dogs only a couple of days to adjust. Had previously used an ottoman. My only suggestion is that that make a taller version. I have a high bed and could use another 8 to 12 inches in height. Other than that I am very satisfied. Another quality Orvis product.
smashing steps -
By: KarenCruickshank from Aberdeen
These steps are just perfect for my little schnauzer. She took to them right away. It has made a big difference to her mobility.
Useful Product -
By: Fugglebug from Klamath Falls, OR
I purchased this item for my German Shepherd who has developed spondylosis in her spine and can no longer easily jump on the bed. The fabric is very good quality for providing purchase for the dog. I only wish there was a larger model as this one is not tall enough and I will have to make a base for it.
We had tried other steps for our 2 Havenese to get up and down off of our high bed, but they kept jumping... until these lightweight steps. The angle is great and it is more like a bumpy ramp causing no impact. Thank you!

I bought this for my elderly arthritic cat with some doubts about she would use it. Happily I am able to report that she took very little time to learn how to use it and access the bed, her favourite spot when she wants some peace and quiet.
