My Golden Retriever Molly at age 12 is no longer able to jump into my car or airplane. This ramp (72") is perfect for her. It took several weeks to train her how to use it, but now she walks up and down the ramp with ease, even at the slightly steeper angle going into the airplane.
Folded, the ramp fits along the right side of my RAV4's baggage area with the back seats folded, and is held in place with a stretch strap. It will also fit sideways but is less convenient to use. In use, it rests perfectly over the back bumper, resting on the door sill of the baggage area.
It fits perfectly between the front and back seats of my Cessna 172. In use, it rests on the door sill of either door.
Molly has gone everywhere with me all of her life, since she was 7 weeks old. With this ramp, she'll be able to continue to do so for awhile longer.
This is the perfect ramp for getting my 70lb Lab in and out of the truck. She is a little skeptical of going up it but comes down with ease. I just need to work and praise on the up step. It is light and portable and fits our needs just right. We had a plastic one for the last few years and it gave out and snapped in half. The construction of this one will for sure outlast the plastic one. The only downfall to this one is the strap closure to hold it together during transport. It does not hold the unit together tightly enough and it rattles. Other than that, it is a great ramp and serves the purpose of getting my big girl in and out of the truck.
It was just as described and worked perfectly. It was not overly packaged and not hard to figure out. I am quite pleased
Quality is good.
Does not fit the back seat of a Chevrolet Silverado pick up truck
I bought this ramp to use in my outdoor storm shelter in hopes of training my dogs to go down it...after two days some good progress. Only thing I don't care for about the ramp is that the grip is very rough to the point of it scratching up my hands and knuckles and the metal end piece that touches the ground is somewhat jagged.
My wife and I had been looking for a dog ramp to make it easier for her to load our two labs in the truck for their vet visits. We selected the DR-07 aluminum dog ramp based on the posted description. It was spot on. At 19 pounds my wife can easily maneuver the ramp into position for our dog's use, then fold it for transport or storage. The non-slip surface allowed our dog's to master the ramp with ease. Our female was first, but at 65 pounds she had an advantage over our 111 pound male. This is a high quality dog ramp which should give us many years of service. The only reason I gave this product a 4 instead of a 5 is because I would prefer it be 6 inches wider, but of course our male is an extra large dog.
Finally a dog ramp that will last. Other ramps at the same price using plastic material with sliding extensions warp over a year. This ramp is made to last. Sturdy but lightweight. Great ease of use and paw friendly. This ramp will save my back and alleviate the stress and pain on the dogs jumping in and out of the car. I'm super pleased!
We just love our new dog ramp! We purchased it with grant money for our SAR K-9 Team from Puget Sound Energy Foundation Grant. Discount Ramps for your speedy and professional service is superb and of course another outstanding product! Our K-9 Tic has been walking 2 miles on a treadmill everyday and without any hesitation climbed right up on this Lucky Dog Ramp the grip coating on it is wonderful as well! From South Puget Sound Mobile Search and Rescue Captain and K-9 Team we thank you!
Perfect for what we were looking for!! We needed a pet ramp long enough for our dogs to get into the bed of the truck and our truck has a 4" lift on it. The dogs love riding in the back with the camper shell and bed rug. Great product and easy to store!!
Definitely what I was looking for. It looks like it is well made. Lightweight and durable. Makes my life easier than lifting my 90 lb. arthritic Collie into my SUV.
I'm a musician who found another use for this ramp. I'm using it to load up a couple QSC K-Subs speakers into my minivan. I bought the 6' extra wide ramp. This ramp is also perfect for heavy tube guitar and bass amps. Very well constructed and light weight to carry. I looked at several brands and companies before I decided on discount ramps. I so glad I did. Very quick shipping and arrived in perfect condition. Thanks again for a quality product. It's saving my back.
Our 9 year old Siberian Husky recently tore her ACL doing her "happy dance" for the neighbor lady that gives her treats. At first I picked her up and took her outside and back inside, as well as in the vehicle and out of the vehicle to her doctors appointment. She is very independent and active and not one to be confined, in fear of doing more damage than good picking her up I looked to making her a ramp to get in and out of the house. I wanted something portable so that it could be used for the house as well as the vehicle. After contemplation of materials, weathering etc I decided to look to google for answers. It may sound like I am on the payroll however the first site that caught my eye was Discount Ramp because of the aluminum ramp. Being aluminum it solved most of the criteria for the ramp I wanted being: 'weathering' as well as 'portable' for the vehicle and house. Since buying the ramp about 2 weeks ago we are continuing to acclimate her to use it more. She is very independent and still not real sure of it, however with the non-skid tread and training her 'its a good thing' she is coming around. I can't say that there is any dislikes of the product, it's the perfect size (8ft), light weight / portable and fits the needs for what I was looking for. I would highly recommend this product to anyone looking to make life a little easier for their long term companion(s).
I bought this ramp for our 91 pounds Lab to be able to get into our Jeep. It appears this will work very well and prevent me from lifting weights I should not lift. I have already recommended it to friends whom are looking for like ramps.
We ordered this 6 ft ramp for our old red healer who is having problems jumping up into our truck, we have a travel trailer in which he isn't able to get into anymore so we got this wonderful ramp in which he is able to just walk up into the truck or trailer. This is the best and so perfect for our Rusty. We take him everywhere we go and now he's a happy camper. Thank you so much
Shopped all over looking for a light weight pet ramp long enough for my truck and would fold. This ramp is the best we had found and once it arrived, it has lived up to the advertising. Both our dogs are 12 years old, a Yorky and a Husky. They took right to the ramp. It folds and stores easily in the pickup, seems very safe in place. Would highly recommend this to anyone not wanting to lift a Husky (the Yorky is no problem).
Our German Shepherd is almost 12 and can no longer get in and out of our truck due to aging hips. We were lifting his 100 pound body every time but that was getting tough on him and our backs. We wanted a ramp that was long enough that would work with our truck and not be too steep of an incline. We ordered this ramp and were pleasantly surprised at how light it was and the sturdiness. It took a little time to get our older dog used to it but he is getting better. Our younger dog is able to use it as well. We really like how light it is and the handle is super convenient. The only thing we wish is that it was a little wider.
likes- perfect size for use and transport, not too heavy or bulky, sturdy, great non slip traction even when wet. my dog adjusted to it right away, no training to speak of involved!!!!! dislikes- sharp corners, be careful with car upholstery, the hinge bolts for tightness upon receiving. mine were not properly torqued on the nonslip nuts. again other than that great. saves my dogs legs and back jumping in and out of full size SUV, and my back from having to lift an 85# dog in and out. highly recommend it!
We purchased for our Golden Retriever. She recently hurt her leg. The leg is healed but we felt like the stress on her legs when jumping into and out of our SUV was putting undo stress on her legs. We ordered the ramp on Tues and it arrived on Friday. The ramp is light and easy to use. Although at first hesitant within 5 minutes our Golden had no problem using it. The only small negative is the lip that goes into the car is somewhat sharp. In an abundance of caution we put a towel under the lip. We are very happy with the product.
I bought this ramp for my Corgi puppy, Tucker, because his legs are too short to go down our deck stairs to the stone patio below. Tucker is getting a little too heavy to keep carrying down the stairs, but I want to protect his spine and joints. This ramp is great. It's lightweight, so I can carry it myself, but is very sturdy. I was able to walk on it with Tucker, and it didn't feel wobbly. The only thing I would like is for the company to offer a longer ramp than 96". Tucker is able to navigate the ramp just fine, but the angle is pretty steep due to the height of our deck to the patio. This was the longest ramp I found, and I am very happy with it.
I like the cleanness of the design and the quality of the material. The ramp is easy to use and my German Shepherd went right to it into the back of my truck. before the ramp she was too heavy for me to lift her into the truck. Love this product.
I bought this ramp for my 2 Black Russian Terriers. These dogs can weight up to 150 lbs when matured. This was the only ramp I found that can accomodate up to 250 lbs. Awesome product. Sturdy. Durable. And very easy to set up and store in truck.
The DR-07 dog ramp ordered from DiscountRamps.com is excellent, sturdy, lightweight, and easy to set up and use. I would give the ramp 5 stars if it had a rubber coating or other protective surface over the "lip" of the ramp - at the top end, where it will come in contact with the car. It works fine on my truck, where the top of the tailgate is covered with plastic, but on my sedan, it would scratch (so I will make the modification myself). Other than that, this is a perfect ramp for my dogs (Border Collies) to get into my 4x4 truck, and especially - for getting out, where they otherwise put a strain on their wrists when they jump down. Of course they can do it, but I prefer to keep them healthy!
this aluminum folding ramp has changed our transport lives for my dogs . It is safe, easy to use, folds and slides into the back of my jeep no problem . I love the non-slip surface.i use my two dogs in Pet Therapy so we go every day . My Great Dane has no trouble getting in and out of my Jeep now .... I love it .
