Having a dog ramp for bed in your house can be very helpful to your dog, whether your dog is small and can not climb some stairs, or if he is disabled or is already very old. Inner ramps for dogs allow small breeds or toys access to higher surfaces, without causing tension in their small joints. Adult pets with joint pain or arthritis may need help to get to your bed or couch to snuggle with you. The correct dog ramp for bed for your pet will allow you more freedom. It is very easy to build a ramp for your dog, and here are the steps to do it.
Get on a bedroom scale and weigh yourself. Hold your dog and weigh yourself again. Subtract the combined weight of you and your pet to achieve your pet’s individual weight. Multiply the weight of your pet by two to choose a dog ramp for bed that supports double its weight. This rule is important, especially if your pet is loud. The idea of the ramp is to help you in areas of difficult access and avoid injuries, not jump over it with all your strength and break the ramp.

Secure a 12-inch-wide dog ramp for bed for small or medium dogs without balance problems. Choose a larger 16-inch ramp for larger dogs or a dog with balance problems. No matter how wide you choose, it’s important that your dog’s ramp includes side rails to prevent his four-legged friend from sliding off each side of the ramp.
