- Ruff Ramp® has cleats that your dog can push off of when going up the stairs for better traction, and use going down the stairs to prevent sliding. Each cleat has been rounded so there are no sharp corners if your pet is a tenderfoot.
- A guide rail runs along the entire length of Ruff Ramp® which discourages jumpers from leaving the ramp early. The bottom rail is raised which assists old dogs in keeping the hind legs over the ramp, and the upper rail provides a visual clue as to where to walk on the ramp. If your best friend is visually impaired, the upper rail can be installed to give them tactile guidance as to where to walk on the ramp.
- Ruff Ramp® has stabilizing posts at strategic locations to take the “bounce” out of your dog’s traverse of the staircase. Ruff Ramp® is rock solid so your pet feel safe and secure when on it.
Once you assemble a Ruff Ramp®, gone are the days of trying to carry a 50, 70, or even 100 lb dog up and down the staircase, replaced with the joy of seeing your family member regain their independence and enjoying getting outside again on their own.

Ruff Ramp® Reviews
Ruff Ramp® was exactly what we needed for our senior dog having trouble going down stairs. He is fearful in general but it only took going down Ruff Ramp® twice for him to learn how to use it. It made it easier for us when letting him out and allowed him to keep his independence. The product is amazingly well made and withstood the wind, snow and rain of a Northeast winter without issue.

Dr. Anita Soucy: “We really need something to help these old dogs. Just the ability to get in and out of the house without pain is huge…especially the big dogs, they can’t get up the stairs without pain and eventually they’ll stop trying because it hurts so much and that can be a limit to their lifespan…”
