    Emily,Yes! One shelf will easily support your 15 pounder with little concern. Your dog will takecright to it!

    But of course!

    Good idea! There’s no use in doing work twice! Good job!

    I’m sorry to hear that. I know that you can also make a ramp using woven wire mesh with edges bent to create the ridgity you need.

    This ramp can easily support 125 pounds. My Shar Pei weighs 70 pounds and he doesn’t affect it in the least. Try building one, you’ll see that your big dog can easily be accommodated onnit with no issues.

    Easily! My Shar Pei weighs 70 pounds without any problem. The ramp can support way more than what your dog weighs.

    Boo ya!

    I feel so blessed knowing so many people comfort in providing their dogs and cats with this alternative method of getting up on the couch, bed, or shortcutting a stair... freaking amazing!

    What a great looking dog!

    It's simply magic how many dogs and cats have benefited from this easy-to-make ramp!

    That's so cool... simple, relatively easy and less expensive than the professional models... what's there not to love?Lou and Boo

    Use a glue gun!

    Good for you! Don’t forget to ask someone close for help if you need it. In addition, you can make it lighter by removing every other price of wire on the shelving pieces. Good luck and post a photo!

    It worked for Boo, it will work for yoo!

    First off, we call that type of dachshund a spotted cow (affectionately) from where I come from. We used to get our pair all giddy with excitement by softly saying, "Weenie" over and over again while raising the volume until they were going crazy. Some of those little guys take a little more of a learning curve due to their perceived height issues (fear of heights). I would suggest lining each side with a piece of cardboard to a point above his/her eye level. Once the pooch gets use to using it, simply crop the cardboard lengthwise by one inch every three days until it's gone.

    Your second dog will catch on soon enough. It’s like teaching them to use a doggie door. They learn by example. Your idea of using a trail of treats will eventually work! I’m glad it turned out well and at such a killer price, what dog can complain?

    It sure looks functional! Hope your dog likes it. So far, everyone is gappy with their build results.

    Try propping it up with a stool, box or something similar, then use bungy cords to tie it between the box spring and the mattress. The other way is to slip a piece of plywood between the box spring and the mattress about half the length of the ramp and poitionbit so the ramp come up to the same height as the bed top. Zip tie and bungy cord it in place...

    I'm glad tou like it!

    Tou're more than welcome!

    Home depot remanent!

    Use a hot melt glue gun and you'll be fine! Or draft a strapping young lad in the neighborhood to help you push the awl through the carpet for your zip ties.Also, if you clip the zip ties off, you will leave a very sharp edge. Use a lighter to round off these edges.ci hope this helps.Lucien

    Good for you and your pet!

    Oh, heck yeah! Doubled-up shelving Is extremely strong.... It is a very tough assembly.

    My dog weighs 70 pounds and another dog whose owner made a ramp weighs 167 pounds... I would hate to have his food bill!
