At first glance, pet stairs may seem silly. Then, you realize just how high the bed is from Fido’s point of view. Pet stairs can make it easier for pups to get onto high surfaces, including cars. Some stairs are designed to be tossed in the trunk, and some are actually ramps, which can be easier to navigate for short-legged pups. The type of stairs that are right for you depend on how you plan to use them, and what type of pet you have. Like any new experience, you may need to train your pet to become comfortable with steps.
