Some other telescoping ramps use a low-pile carpet for tread material. This tread is best suited for skittish dogs as they can get a better grip on carpet as they walk up and down. The downside to a carpeted pet ramp is that it tends to retain odors and is slightly more difficult to clean. Some manufacturers sell replacement carpet tread. On the other hand, PetSTEP ramps are made of a corrugated plastic material. This tread appears to be the most durable as it wears the best as it ages and is easily cleaned.

Practical slanted ramp intended for smaller, older or disabled dogs. It is made of grey plastic covered in a beige snaps-attached machine washable carpet tread. This ramp is lightweight, easy portable and has anti-slip rubbery feet.I received my dogramp, and felt compelled to write you with my results. My large old dog easily followed me up the ramp to our bed. It holds a lot of weight easily. The raised sides and wide ramp with no slide carpet made it very user friendly. I didn't need to buy a long and a short ramp, as this one is so easily adjustable and light weight. And last, the handle makes it easy to move from the house to the car. In short, I think this is the best ramp on the market for large dogs and their owners.

Sincerely,The ramp's carpet is often understated ,but we use only plush, residential-grade carpet for our indoor pet ramps. Not only does it look the best in your home, but also it is important that the ramp be covered with a "non-loop" carpet to avoid the painful result of catching a tiny toenail in a carpet "loop". The plush carpet is also important in providing a dense gripping surface for your dog or cat to grip as it ascends the ramp. Larger, heavier dogs also enjoy the added benefit of the nylon "grid" below the carpet fibers. Their larger nails can often reach that surface for even greater traction. (And, still, there's no risk of catching a nail!)If your dog has hard times with reaching higher places such as beds or sofas, this doggie ramp will be a perfect solution for him. It's handmade of sturdy wood, painted in yellow, and covered with nice-to-touch carpet for easy climbing.
