I bought the 3 step for my 60 lb dog when she was injured, paralyzed temporarily and had to learn to walk again. She thought she was a lap dog and slept in the bed. Unfortunately I could never train her to use them but stores them for years. Now my Jack Russell is 13 and cannot jump up onto the bed anymore because of severe arthritis. I remembered the steps and he learned immediately how to use them. Now he can get up and down as he pleases from the
bed. So they were well worth paying for and keeping!

I purchased these steps to go beside my couch for my 14 year old cat to get to his spot. He took to them right away, no hesitation. They do slant forward quite a bit really and I was afraid that he wouldn't use them because of it. But I was very wrong!
If you're buying for a cat I don't think you can go wrong.

This is a great product for able bodied dogs.
I bought it for my arthritic pug and she can't use it.
Our small spaniel breezes up and down the stairs.
We also have a short legged shih tzu that can climb
up but still cannot go down. We will work on this.

Recently purchased the three step product. Have a 15 year old beagle that was using the four step one, but was having difficulty coming down. The 4 steps were too narrow for him to balance himself going down. Thought the 3 step with wider steps would help him. But the one we purchased is angled in a downward position, so he cannot get his balance going down. Plus, the plastic around the carpeted step is slippery so he seems to be struggling to even go up the steps. NOT HAPPY at all with this purchase.

Perhaps if trained to use these steps as pups, the stairs would be useful and beneficial in a dog's later years. However, both my dogs, 10 and 11 years old were too afraid to use these steps to go up onto the bed. Even though I tried to entice them with treats placed upon the upper step levels, they would not go on the steps. If lifted up and placed on the steps, they were too afraid of them and immediately jumped off to the side. I am afraid I just wasted $50

Tips for Use
I purchased this to help my 12 year old Border Collie onto the bed. She was an agility competition dog so I thought this would be easy. Turns out that she would not use the stairs as they were not wide enough for her to stay on easily. I made side rails using the cardboard that this came packaged in and attached them to the sides of the stairs using double sided foam tape. Abby now goes up easily as she can run her side against the rail and can't fall off the sides. I'll probably make a new set of rails from luan as they would look better, but she doesn't care.

The Lhasa Apso's love them they run up and down like nothing the dachund won't go up but comes down with ease, which is most important. They are wonderful I don't have to worry about them getting hurt by jumping off the high bed.

We purchased the 3-step dog steps for our 14 year old cat so he could get onto our bed. It has worked SOOOO well for him, and given him such joy to be able to get onto the bed again. We are impressed with the quality of the dog steps and would highly recommend them. From our perspective, the product is precisely as described. We really consider this to be one of our best purchase ideas.
