Pet Stairs for Small Dogs

Updated on March 13, 2015

Pet Stairs for Small Dogs to Climb Onto Bed

Pet stairs for small dogs allow your puppy or older dog to climb into bed or onto couches and chairs with ease. Pet stairs for beds keep your dog safe by preventing him from straining to join you on the furniture. My mother-in-law uses a set of steps for her little Shih Tzu. She has two sets; one for the living room and another for the bedroom. They work great for her small dog and keep her from injuring herself. I even used a set of pet stairs for my toddler son to help him safely climb into bed when we first moved him to a big boy bed.

Here you'll find a variety of pet steps for your dog or cat. All of them will help your pet to get on and off the furniture safely, giving you peace of mind. Browse these pet stairs for small dogs and choose the one perfect for your household.

The benefits of pet stairs

Sometimes small dogs can get severely injured when they try to jump on and off the furniture because their tiny bones are so fragile. Also at risk for injury are older dogs and even cats. If you have a pet that's having difficulty getting on and off the furniture, then pet stairs are an inexpensive way to keep your pet safe and healthy. A small stair allows your pet to safely step up and down to get on and off of sofas, chairs, and beds. Pet stairs are also very portable so you can easily move them to what ever room your pet needs at the time, even the bathroom to help your small dog climb in and out of the bathtub.

My mother-in-law uses pet stairs in her home for her tiny Shih Tzu to safely climb on and off of the sofa and bed. We have a set of pet stairs in our home to help our three year old son safely climb in and out of his bed.

      Such a great idea for our beloved doggy fellows. Ours stills hurls himself at anything he wants to climb up which at 12 with a slightly creaky rear hock is not always the best idea - part Labrador, part bulldozer! Pet stairs are definitely the answer. Thanks for sharing.
