Discount Ramps has been receiving a lot of calls lately in regards to our selection of pet stairs and pet ramps. Majority of the questions being asked to our pet product specialists are regarding the weight of the pet stairs that we offer along with the usability of the pet stairs. Because of this we have put together two articles to help find the right ramp and/or pet stairs to fulfill the requirements of your situation. We will be adding more pet ramp, stairs, and stroller articles very soon. For now, please visit the following two pages for additional information:
We have created a section on our pet stairs and pet ramps page that is specifically dedicated to our pet stairs. See our pet stairs here.
Remember that whenever you are ordering pet stairs, pay close attention to the total height of the stairs so that the top of the last step will be at the level of your couch, chair, vehicle, etc. The reason behind this is a smooth transition onto the other surface. When your pet goes to step off this harder, more stable/firm surface onto, let’s say, a couch — if it is not a very level transition they may get scared or feel unstable. Furthermore, a majority of the pet stairs have a carpeted surface.
If you’re in the market for the most popular and lightest pet stairs we are confident you will find the ultralite pet stairs to be the best option. However, if you’re looking for a more designer-style look you will want to see our wooden bed pet stairs which we offer two models of: a standard and decorative stair.
We have recently started stocking a new eight foot long dog ramp. The part number for this dog ramp is the DR-08. We decided to start selling this 96″ long aluminum dog ramp mostly because of the high demand from our customers for a ramp longer than the 7′, which used to be the longest pet ramp available. The DR-08 has comes fully equipped with all the standard features. For instance, since the ramp is manufactured out of aluminum it is designed to last for years because aluminum does not rust. Not only that but because it is made of aluminum the total weight of the ramp is very minimal(26lbs). The fact that it is so light weight makes this extra long 8′ dog ramp ideal for assisting pets into higher spaces while not sacrificing the ramp’s ability to be portable. Speaking of portable, the DR-08 is a folding ramp too. It will fold the length in half and allow you to carry it with it’s built in “suitcase” style handle.
UPDATE: a New 18.25″ wide, 8 foot long dog ramp has been announced and will be available in mid-May 2007- part # DR-08XW. This will be the longest, widest dog ramp available anywhere!
