From an early age, a dogs natural instinct is to curl up within the litter in order to keep warmth whilst their fur coats are at their thinnest. You would think that this would be something that they grow out of, but warmth through body-heat is ingrained in their DNA, so a snuggle on your bed is absolute heaven to your dog!
Allowing them up may be a challenge though, as some beds rise far higher than their little legs can manage. Unfortunately, larger sized dogs will have trouble with these varieties of ramp, smaller breeds of dogs only i'm afraid! We have reviewed a collection of ramps for dogs of all shapes and sizes! Read on to find out more!
Solvit Wood Bedside Ramp
The Solvit Wood Bedside Dog Ramp For Bed is the first up on our list for review, it is an incredibly long ramp that sits at 70 inches in length which would provide the most ideal fit down the side of a regular queen sized bed with a nightstand at the head of the bed. With the ramp being this length, it greatly reduces the incline that your dog would be expected to ascend to get to the top of the bed, and with a generous sized landing surface at the top of the ramp, it gives your pet ample room to pivot and walk onto your bed.
This ramp is 16 inches wide which results in a large surface area for your dog to climb onto and reduces the risk of them toppling off of the edge. This ramp is ideal for pets who are unable or not willing to use stairs as it creates a far more approachable surface, in late 2016, Solvit upgraded the model to facilitate thicker carpeting as there were some customers who were unhappy with the grip that the old carpet provided. The new carpet implemented provides incredible levels of grip and support and gives your pet something to dig their claws comfortably into.
The Solvit Wood Bedside Dog Ramp For Bed supports weights of up to a maximum 150lbs, meaning that it is ideal for smaller/medium breeds of dogs but would struggle under the weight of larger dogs so we would recommend a different ramp if your dog weighs around anywhere over 110lbs.
Overall this ramp is an exceptional all-rounder and very appealing on the eye in it's beautiful cherry gloss, with its generous landing area and incredibly lengthy design coupled with it's thicker carpeting for better traction, this ramp meets the criteria for almost every scenario. The ramp takes approximately 15 minutes to assemble so your pet should be up and running in your comfy bed in no time!
Pet Gear Free Standing Dog Ramp
Up next is another variety of dog ramp for bed from Pet Gear, however, it differs greatly in shaping and height to the other products in their catalogue. The Pet Gear Free Standing Dog Ramp is actually a multi-purpose ramp that we have reviewed on our home page for being one of the best available ramps for loading pets into the back of an SUV/Car.
Since it is a free-standing ramp and supports it's own weight with the folding dense plastic backplate, it can also be used comfortably indoors as well as outdoors, which is perfect news for those who are looking for a ramp that works with their vehicle and one to access greater heights of furniture like beds and couches.
The ramp is extremely compact and folds incredibly easily, so if you have a raised bed with space underneath it can easily slide under once the backplate has been collapsed and can fit underneath your bed for use in the morning if necessary. The ramp measures 56L x 16""W x 23""H and is ideal for pets weighing up to 200 pounds. Which makes this ramp the only variety of ramp that larger breeds of dogs can operate without the ramp wobbling or collapsing.
