Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to use We have a 65 pound older dog who had trouble getting into our mid-size car. This ramp works well for the back seat and is easy to maneuver even for short trips where our dog is in and out of the car several times. Ramp is a good weight, fits behind front seats when folded or in passenger seat so we don't have to store it in the trunk all the time. We do have to stabilize the ramp to make sure it doesn't wobble with our dog on it and we use a yoga mat on the ramp for extra grip. Great product for keeping our dog mobile as he ages.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I am impressed Just got the Solvit bi-fold dog ramp for my new vehicle....Dodge Journey. Have an 85 lb greyhound who has arthritic "wrists" and jumping out of the back was miserable for him. Easy to use, light, I secure it in the rear seatbelt against the side to store. Took 2 tries with a high-value treat, and he's got it down pat. Love it! Only takes about one extra minute to haul it out, unfold, get the hound out, refold & back in vehicle.

Questions

What is "high traction material" for footing?

Asked by: brwndog
You keep saying the traction material is water resistant, etc. but so far you haven't said what the material is! One company said theirs was a sandpaper type. THAT says to me it is something that will always need replacement. seems many of us would like the answer. What is it?

I have a 100 lb., 10 yr. old Golden retriever that I have to pick up to get her into an older Chevy Suburban whether into the back or the back seat. This is not easy for a 60 yr. old. Will this be secure enough for her to get into the back?

Asked by: Jim S
Thank you for your question. The Bi-Fold Dog Ramp can support over 200lbs. To help your pet feel sure footed and confident using the ramp, there are four rubber feet on the bottom to help the ramp grip surfaces, and its walking surface is made of a high-traction material. The Bi-Fold Dog Ramp is long enough when extended to help your pet easily reach heights of up to two feet.

I have a large dog 120 lbs. What is the weight limit of your product? Does it fold for storage or transport?

Asked by: Bo Bo
Thank you for your question. The product can support over 200lbs. It is easy to fold and unfold when you need to use or store it. The ramp also has a safety release latch meant to prevent it from opening accidentally.

We have a travel trailer with 2 steps In to it. Total height to cover trailer to ground is about the equivalent of 3 steps total. Can we use this OVER THE steps or in place of the steps?

Asked by: Rowdy1
Thank you for your question. The dimensions are 62" x 16" x 4". If it can fit over the steps, you can do so that way. If not, may want to remove the steps for a better fit.

Is the ramp waterproof? Can it be used in a pool?

Asked by: AngieM
Yes, this ramp is waterproof as it is all plastic. It is not recommended to be used in water however, as it may not be the safest idea for your pet. Hope this helps.

What is PetSafe Lightweight Bi-Fold Dog Ramp?

The PetSafe Lightweight Bi-Fold Dog Ramp is the lightest full-size ramp currently on the market. And though it weighs only 10 pounds, it can still support over 200 pounds. The all-plastic construction is designed to be durable and light, and as a bonus, it's easy to fold and unfold when you need to use or store it. The ramp has a safety release latch meant to prevent it from opening accidentally. To help your pet feel sure footed and confident using the ramp, there are four rubber feet on the bottom to help the ramp grip surfaces, and its walking surface is made of a high-traction material. The Bi-Fold Dog Ramp is long enough when extended to help your pet easily reach heights of up to two feet.

For:

Dogs and Cats

Benefits:

  • Lightweight, yet strong and sturdy
  • Great for helping your pet get to high places
  • Folds and stores easily
  • Rubber grippers for traction

How it Works:

Position the ramp on the ground and on the surface your pet wants to get to so he or she can easily walk up the ramp rather than jumping or struggling to get up.

Cautions:

The PetSafe Lightweight Bi-Fold Dog Ramp is designed for use only by pets such as dogs, cats, and small animals. It is not intended to carry humans or heavy loads. Using the ramp in this way voids the warranty and creates an unsafe situation. Please follow this guideline strictly. When the safety locking strap is not engaged, it is possible for the ramp to swing open unintentionally. Always engage the locking strap when the ramp is not in use. When using the ramp in your vehicle, make sure your pet stays inside the vehicle until the ramp is deployed. Only then should you walk your pet down.

Directions:

The PetSafe Lightweight Bi-Fold Dog Ramp should come packaged with the safety locking strap engaged (on side of ramp). To disengage, pull on the finger tab, which will remove the bulb end from the opposite ramp piece.

To use the ramp, follow the steps below:

  1. Unfold into a straight shape
  2. Set the angled, upper end (with the logo) on the surface your pet is trying to climb to (car, couch, etc.)
  3. Set the angled, lower surface on the ground.

When your pet is finished using the ramp:

  1. Fold it into the closed position.
  2. Engage the safety locking strap.
  3. Stow in a convenient place.

To protect your pet's safety, make sure the rubber feet on the upper and lower ends of the ramp are resting firmly on a stable surface (car bumper, sidewalk, etc.) before using. If the rubber feet are not in contact, the ramp could shift during use, risking injury to your pet.

Cautions:

The PetSafe Lightweight Bi-Fold Dog Ramp is designed for use only by pets such as dogs, cats, and small animals. It is not intended to carry humans or heavy loads. Using the ramp in this way voids the warranty and creates an unsafe situation. Please follow this guideline strictly.

To Train Your Dog to Use the Ramp:

Many pets will begin using the pet ramp with no hesitation. However, if your pet is unsure at first, you should be able to train him or her to be comfortable using it. Lay the ramp flat on the ground, and allow your pet to become comfortable walking on it before using it in an inclined position. It may help to hold your pet by the collar and offer praise, reassurance, and/or treats as your pet gains confidence using the ramp.

Tip:

If the plastic parts of the pet ramp get dirty, clean them with any standard household cleaner. The tread material can be cleaned with mild detergent and a stiff brush or a strong jet of water.
