Play Safe Pet Stairs - Frequently Asked Questions

Q. WHY SHOULD I USE DOG STAIRS WHEN MY DOG CAN JUMP?

A.  Lots of Reasons!  Dog stairs minimize the impact on your dog’s paws, legs, and back that can cause serious injury over a lifetime of jumping. You may see a happy, jumping doggy now but internally the joint and back strain is taking a toll, eventually resulting in arthritis and large medical bills.  Limiting jumping minimizes injuries and is one of the best ways to prevent an early onset of arthritis.  Proactively using dog steps can save your dog and your wallet! 

Q. ARE PET STEPS AND PET RAMPS BENEFICIAL FOR HEALTHY, YOUNG PETS?

A. Absolutely! A little forethought and planning can reap huge rewards down the line.  Preventative measures taken in your pet's youth can decrease the effects of joint diseases as your pet ages.  Your pet can safely and easily access beds, couches, and cars, eliminating risks and promoting superior bone, muscle and joint health. Plus our steps improve the quality of life for pets who normally couldn’t reach higher places.  Using pet stairs or extending a ramp could actually be extending your pet’s happy and healthy productive years.

Q. CAN MY CAT USE PET STAIRS?

A. Yes, pet stairs are a great way for cats to access higher locations with minimum strain to their back and legs.  Just because a cat has 9 lives and always land on their feet, doesn't mean they don't do damage to their joints each time.  Pet stair access for your cat provides great preventative measures to keep them safe. 

Q. WHY WOULD I USE A DOG RAMP RATHER THAN DOG STAIRS?

A. A dog ramp may be a better solution for post-surgical, aging, or injured pets that have difficulty climbing stairs. In addition, dog ramps are designed for portability and easier for access into cars and trucks; saving your back from the strain of lifting your heavy pet!

Q. CAN ALL PETS LEARN TO USE PET STAIRS?

A. We don't see why not!  With patience, you can teach any animal to use their pet stairs. It will be worth the training effort to give them a lifetime of wellness.  Watch our video "How to Teach Your Dog to Use Stairs" for dog training tips.

Q. ARE PET STAIRS REALLY WORTH THE MONEY?

A. Definitely! Using pet stairs is a very cost-effective way to keep your pet safe and reduce the number of trips your pet may need to the vet's office. A pet ramp is a great solution for aging, post-surgical, or injured pets that have difficulty climbing stairs. In addition, pet ramps are designed for portability and easier for access into cars and trucks; saving your back from the strain of lifting your heavy pet!

Q. ARE ALL DOG STAIRS THE SAME?

A. No; there are dog stairs for small dogs and dog stairs for large dogs.  Dog stairs come in varying widths and heights for different dog breeds and sizes.  The article "How to Find the Best Dogs Stairs" gives great information on finding the best dog stairs for your dog.
