Dog Ramp : What is it?

Dog Ramps

A dog ramp is an inclined plane set on the ground used by dogs for going up or down an elevated area. It is useful for older dogs who have decreased physical agility and those that are finding it harder to climb stairs, board cars, or climb onto beds. It can also be used by small dogs or puppies that cannot climb or jump onto higher surfaces by themselves. It is also an exercise equipment, helping dogs stay more active and healthy.
