Gentle Rise™ Dog Bed Ramp|
Help your Senior Dog Access your Bed Safely
Many senior dogs are physically unable to get up and down safely from your bed and most cannot use steps due to joint problems and vision loss. Our Gentle Rise™ Dog Bed Ramp provides a gradual slope, making it easy and safe for senior dogs to go up and down from your bed. Help your senior dog continue to enjoy the comfort of your bed and avoid the risk of serious injuries that can happen when dogs try and jump down.
The Gentle Rise Bed Ramp hugs your bed, minimizing the amount of space it uses in your bedroom. The ramp's side rail, wide walking platform and sturdy frame help your dog feel secure using the ramp. The side rail can be installed on either side.
The walkway of the dog ramp is covered in non-slip rubber flooring made in the USA from recycled materials that provides maximum grip and cushion to help reduce the pressure on sore joints.
The dog ramp's frame is crafted with pine imported from Finland and the platform (under the rubber flooring) is a finished plywood made from poplar, creating a lightweight, yet strong base. This ramp can easily handle up to 120 lbs in weight. The ramp measures 26" tall from the ground to the platform. This allows it to be safely used with beds a little higher and a little lower. The total width including the trim is 17" and the walkway, with the rubber flooring (not including the trim) is 14". The ramp including the platform measures 74" in total length.
Big or small, your dog will love the ability to easily access one of their favorite places in your home - your bed.

I am very impressed at the quality of this ramp. The hardware and wood all seem to be sturdy and made to last. It came beautifully packaged in a sturdy box. My dog is about 85 pounds and it will very easily support his weight. I climbed up on it and I'm over 145, and it didn't so much as wobble. I put it together alone, and it took maybe an hour (I'm not as flexible as I used to be!) Unfortunately I have not yet been able to train my dog to use this. He's an anxious dog and when I first introduced him to the ramp, I had it on the wood floor. He was concerned and hesitant, but put his front legs on the ramp (urged on by a piece of yummy meat). His hind legs were still on the floor. His hind feet slipped out from under him (his hind legs are weak, that's why he has difficulty jumping on the bed) and he sprawled onto the floor on his stomach. Ouch! Now he's terrified of the ramp and won't go near it, despite high-value treats and lots of loving encouragement. Be careful when introducing your dog to the ramp; if you don't have a fully carpeted surface, put a non-skid mat at the base of the ramp to give your dog some grip on the floor. Love this ramp, hopefully I can use it and won't have to donate it.
Very, very pleased. Nice people to work with.
We have a large dog. She's older with arthritis. This ramp is a really sturdy construction. The side rail keeps her from potentially falling off. I highly recommend this ramp to anyone.
I don’t know how I ever got along without it!! Sellers and ramp are super!!!!!
We are ordering a 2nd one for the spare bedroom! Just wish it was a bit wider for my great dane.
