I have an elderly Akita who can no longer jump into my SUV. This ramp was perfect and arrived very quickly - just in time to get her to an urgent vet visit. The ramp is very lightweight so quite easy for me to maneuver - important because I am not very strong. Because it folds, I am able to put it on the front seat of my car after my dog has loaded, so it doesn't have to be in her way in the back of my vehicle. Most importantly, this ramp is wide enough for a large dog, and the tread provides great traction for an old dog who isn'the as steady on her feet as she used to be. I had some other dog ramp years ago for my previous Akitas and they wouldn'the use it because it was too narrow; they surely did not feel safe on that other ramp. This extra-wide ramp, though is wonderful. Great ramp, great price, great service from this company. If you have a big dog, get this ramp!
seems to be a sturdy ramp. had to put an outdoor carpet on top of the non skid. dog did not like the feel of the non skid. seemed to slip a little even with the non skid. carpet fixed that problem for her.
I found this on the web site and had not problem ordering it. It was shipped and arrived on time.
My dog immediately was able to go up and down the ramp with no problem. It is quality built and easy to use. No assembly required.
Thanks very much.
We just purchased the 7' extra-wide ramp so our 12-year old lab can navigate the front steps. Our dog has always been hesitant on steps and now that old age and balky hips have taken hold...it finally came to the point where he couldn't make it up or down the stairs. Lifting, boosting, pushing an 80 lb lab up the steps is no fun so we decided to try a ramp from discount ramps. Taking some tips from the other reviewers (especially the hot dog treats) we had our dog going up and down the ramp comfortably in the first couple of days. The ramp materials are high quality and it looks like it will stand up to New England weather. The lip of the ramp keeps it firmly in place on the top step. If you're looking for a sturdy ramp to support a large dog, this is a great choice.
The ramp arrived quickly after ordering it. Came in a good package and already together. Good and sturdy. My mastif's will use it getting into my truck. Now all they need to do is learn that it is safe and easier getting in and out. Going to make a carry bag for it. Shame there is not a carry bag for it or part of the package. Now all you need to do is train them. Need to have a quick guide on teaching in the package and it would be a complete set.
This ramp works perfectly for our older heavy dogs to get into the van.
My Husky/Shepard mix weighs about 65 lbs and is 12 years old, getting in and out of the truck has been tough on both of us, the extra wide ramp is great, very sturdy, quick to set up and easy on both of us! Great product and well made, highly recommend it. Thanks as it has made all the difference in the world to him, no more soreness from jumping down out of the floorboard of the truck.
I'm so glad that I bought the extra wide ramp. My 120 lb Lab went up and down nicely. Construction was pretty sturdy. Like the other reviews, I feel the edges are a bit sharp. Overall, a great choice!
Bought this ramp because we have 2 older dogs. A 13 yr old Pit/Lab who has mobility issues, and an 11 yr old Lab with hip and tumor issues. Neither could get up in the car any more. After purchasing a truck and knowing we would not be able to lift our 100lb gentle giants in the car, we decided to buy a ramp so they could continue to travel and go camping with us. With hot dogs as a treat both dogs went up the ramp with very little assist. They were so excited to be going for a ride in the car/truck again. Both exited out of the truck with no issues.
The lightness of the ramp is great and the grip tape helps them from sliding.
Should have measured the door for our 2002 Chevy Silverado we can not open the door to get the full width of the ramp but it is wide enough even with the door in the way for the dogs to get into the truck.
Ramp arrived quickly, very satisfied.
We bought this ramp from Amazon and feel we made an excellent choice. This is our second ramp as we upgraded our truck and needed a longer ramp. Our two aging Siberian Huskies were used to the old ramp so this one worked out really well. We are avid RV campers with a 34ft tow along travel trailer. This Ramp works well on the tailgate of the truck and the dogs ride under the camper shell. We are happy that we went with a wider ramp this time too. Fantastic product.
This ramp was just what I was looking for. My dogs are getting pretty old with the one starting to have hip problems. I was looking for a ramp that wouldn't bend or wobble as the dogs climbed the ramp into my x-terra. These ramps don't budge an inch.
The construction is solid and the no-skid surface shows no sign of lifting after two years. The only teeny tiny complaint I could have is that the strap and buckle system to secure the two halves of the ramp when folded don't pull very tight. If the ramp is in an SUV (inside with you) it rattles mercilessly. However, a bungee cord takes care of this and it certainly isn't enough to take away the fifth star of this review. I will (and have) recommended this to others.
This review is of the 96" extra wide folding ramp.
The review is going to be slightly different than most because unfortunately I had to return it.
The product was very sturdy for a 100 lb Lab. It's heavy. The wider width was accurate. I wouldn't have minded an even longer length for my very apprehensive and overly cautious dog who basically did not want one part of it after numerous attempts to train him in that return period timeframe. We probably should have bought this when my dog was a pup and he probably would have taken to it better than try to introduce it now at age 10.
Customer service is fantastic. The woman I spoke with to notify I'd be returning the item (and obtain and RMA) was very efficient, so helpful and really pleasant to deal with - a rare thing in customer service these days and for that I'll buy other items from this company again and recommend them.
I purchased the 8 ft ramp for our Dobie. The ramp looks well constructed. I like having the carrying handle. The only improvement I would like to see is if it would close tighter. I have the strap as snug as it can go, but there's still a little gap. It's not enough to say 'don't buy it' though.
Great ramp. Nice design. Light weight, but very sturdy. Great for travel. Extra wide is perfect for our 100+ German Shephard.
Mofius is my Lab. He is 9 years old and occasionally has problems jumping into the Explorer. I bought this ramp and when it arrived it only took me 3 dog biscuits to get him to use it like a pro. He hates new things and this did the trick. This ramp is excellent and build extremely strong. No shaking or bending as he walks up it. So sturdy. He feels safe and loves it. Thank you so much and anybody interested in a dog ramp should buy this one. I bought the 6 ft one which is perfect. You won't be sorry if you get this at all.
I live in a 35 foot fifth wheel the steps are really steep and my toy fox terrier had a problem getting up and down. This is the perfect fix for my problem and she learned to use it right away. THANKS discount ramps
I am using this ramp for my 14 year old lab. It is great when taking him out because he can no longer maneuver the steps as well as when he was younger. I really like the longer length because the ramp is not too steep for him. My only suggestion would be that since the ramp is so long and folds in half that there would be some kind of locking mechanism so that the ramp would not be as bouncy when your pet first steps on it. Having an older dog this can be a little scary.
My gal and I have 3 old Labs. This ramp is solid and stable. It took a few tries to get the dogs to use it. But now they trot up and down it and save me from the back strain of lifting 3 x 100lb dogs into the bed of my F250. truck. The unit is well made and I expect it will outlive these dogs and their descendants!
This is perfect I am a truck driver with a 100 pound lab he has no problem getting up and down in the truck. Thank you so much for offering this product its perfect.
This is a sturdy easy to carry ramp. Our Golden had knee surgery and we needed to him in and out of the truck without lifting and risk injury. This ramp is solid without giving under his weight. Highly recommend -
100 pound Black Lab. Absolutely the best asset you can have for your Lab or Big Dog. Will save trauma to those hips from jumping. Purchase now you will never regret it.!!!
Great product. Light,Wide and Strong.I have a 160 lbs. Boerboel and it's easy for me to load him in and out the bed of my Dodge Ram.
This ramp is welded aluminum and is long and wide enough to load my old Labs into a tall 4x4 truck! It folds in half and has a sure grip surface. I am very happy with the product and the ease of purchasing.
I don't have a dog. I bought the ramp to help me get my tennis ball machine in my SUV because I am unable to lift it into the car at the moment. It works great for my purpose. It had a couple of scratches that are noticeable because they were on the black top, but I kept it anyway because of the shipping cost to return it and I needed to use it now.
