Useful Product -

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.

Steps as described portable and neat. All I need now is for my unwilling Westie to learn how to use them! Any suggestions?

I was apprehensive about ordering these, because of the price. However, my 8 pound dog is having spinal injuries from jumping off of my tall bed. I have to remind him to use the steps, because he has been jumping off and on the bed for 8 years now, but he is learning to use them. Even though they are expensive, they look better than cheaper versions, and they won't hurt your toes if you run into them in the middle of the night.

We've had the steps two weeks now, and my Cairn terrier has taken to it like a duck to water. A little worried look on her face the first time she tried it, but after that, golden. On and off, on and off, on and off. I like its light weight and the graduated bumps as opposed to the three-step ones I've seen. This makes so much more sense.

...with anything and everything I've purchased from Orvis. I have a Dachshund and I feel good knowing I'm doing all I can for his loooong back..thank you, Orvis!
I have three Cavaliers of varying size and age. These are terrific for them to access my bed which is quite high. They tootle happily and comfortably up and down. I much prefer them to steps which would be jarring and from which they could slip. They have good grip on it, so much better than a smooth ramp. The foam is firm with a small amount of give to absorb any shock. I have it over a year and it is like new still. Cannot recommend this enough.
Perfect for small dogs not so good for large breed -

I ordered this around Christmas time for my Golden Retriever who has a bit of arthritis but loves to sleep in bed. This indeed was tall enough for an average size bed and like all things Orvis the quality was there. My issue is they are so lightweight that they lack stability and my dog feels very uneasy on them. Another thing is they are not that long and he is a tall golden making it difficult for him to make the incline. I have been working with him on using them for the past 6 months with no success. On the other hand our smaller dog (20lbs) uses them with no problem, but he doesnt need them so they are sitting in the box. Hoping I can still return them!
