Dog Couch Ramp

Introduction: Dog Couch Ramp

Greetings! This ramp was made for my "diva" dog, who would rather cry than actually try get up and off of the couch. It's small and easy to assemble, which is what I was aiming for.

Step 1: What You'll Need

1. A Drill

2. A Saw

3. Plywood

4. 2 Boards

5. Screws x 6(.25")

6. Spray Paint (Optional)

Step 2: Cut the Plywood and Screw Onto the Boards

The boards are 26" long (which was a good length for the height of my couch) so I measured and cut the plywood to match the length. I measured the width to be 14" but I ended up with 13.5" instead.

Once the board is cut to length and width place it in top of the boards and using the drill, insert the screws.

Essentially the ramp is completed, but it's rather drab looking. I painted the ramp, but this step is optional.

Step 3: Spray Paint

Spray paint the ramp with a nice even coat of paint.

Step 4: Final Product

I added a white paw print for fun and this is how it turned out. I'm pleased with the ramp and as an added bonus it stands vertically.

Thanks for reading!
