Received this for free from a friend who's dog passed away and I'm very glad didn't purchase it myself. My senior dog was having difficulty jumping off the bed so I hoped he would use this and prevent injuring himself. Despite his ease on regular stairs he was way too afraid to use this (and I don't blame him). Even for a small dog these stairs were not stable, very light and rickety. The worst part of them however was the narrow steps, definitely not as wide as a regular step.
I purchased these for my senior dog, and it was a horrible decision. At first I thought it would be a much more convienient, and safe method for her getting onto the bed, into the car, etc.. It's far from convienient. It would have been a lot better if the steps were collapsible, for one. For two, they are not regular steps. They are build at an actual slant, which makes my dog quite uncomfortable - and she wouldn't even use them alone! Ugh.
What I like about these steps are that they are extremely sturdy compared to most steps on the market. The fabric on the steps is also removable which makes it great for cleaning.
I also found that they were easily put together.
My issue, however, with these steps is that each step is slanted forward. Because of this, my tiny dog could not walk up them without falling backwards, which completely defeated the purpose of purchasing them.
I would recommend them for a bigger dog who is not afraid of heights, but they are very hard to climb for a small dog under 10 lbs.
