Dog Ramp FAQs
Where can I buy a dog ramp?
You can choose from multiple options of dog ramps and step in our dog ramp range on our website here. Please get in touch with our customer service team if you need assistance selecting something.
Are steps or ramps better for dogs?
We recommend considering your dog's individual abilities and mobility issues when deciding whether to get steps or ramps. Smaller animals or dogs with mobility issues may find it more difficult to get up steps or stairs especially if they are high so a ramp would likely be more suitable. If you have a larger dog without mobility issues, our pet steps may be easier to store and transport and store.
What length should my dog ramp be?
We recommend our dog ramps are used at a maximum gradient of 1:3.3 - this will ensure they are not too steep for your pet to use. For example, for a height of 450mm we would recommend a ramp length of 1500mm. You will also need to think about your pets abilities and whether they may require a gentler slope if they have any mobility issues.
Are dog ramps worth purchasing?
The Ramp Factory Team firmly believes that dog ramps are worth purchasing! If your dog or pet is struggling to get up an obstacle, they will find it much easier if you are able to get them a suitable ramp. If they have mobility issues, allowing them to use a ramp to get up/down obstacles can also help ease their pain. Even pets without mobility issues can benefit as jumping onto and off things such as sofas, beds and cars can put pressure on their joints which could cause issues in the future.
Do the ramps have safety edges?
The majority of our dog ramps do have safety edges to help guide your dog and prevent them stepping off the ramp, however, we always suggest always supervising when your pet is using the products.
How do I secure the dog ramp safely?
The Ramp Factory specialises in temporary and ramps. So, like all of our other ramps, our pet and dog ramps simply rest in place when in use for a simple and quick set-up. The weight of the ramp and the pet keeps the ramp firmly in place when in use.
