I agree with everybody doggy steps are invaluable, I have two sets for Bella and she uses them all the time. I live in the UK though and I didn't pay half as much as others have, only about 15 from our local pet shop.

I had a cedar chest at the end of my bed that Midgie used to get on my very high bed. We just tore out all the carpet & put hardwood flooring down. I didn't want her jumping down from the cedar chest & slipping on the hardwood & hurting herself. I had a nice set of plastic pet steps that I got a yard sale & put them right next to the chest. I showed her how to use them once & she's been using them ever since with ease. She's been using them for about 2 months now & I don't panick about her getting hurt. Definitely recommend them. My couch is low enough for her to get up on.

I just found another set of steps at cvs yesterday for $20. They claim to hold up to 70lbs (but i doubt that lol) You could also build them yourself if you're handy, but they are a definite "must" with the little guys.

We were going to buy a set for the living room and bedroom when we first got Jaxx but from the very beginning he could jump up on all the furniture in the living room with ease.
There is no way he can jump up on our bed on his own because it is too high, I have trouble getting into it myself sometimes. We decided that we didn't want to get a pair for the bed though because it is a easy place that if we need to put Jaxx up for a few minutes he goes on the bed and we know he won't jump off. He has only jumped off the bed once and even though he didn't act hurt or anything he has never done it again. I love the option sometimes if I want to take a nap I take Jaxx to bed with me in the daytime and I know he will wake me up if he has to go outside.

Thanks everyone. We will look into either buying some or making some for Zee.

I have 2 sets of stairs. Well, 3 but my sister is borrowing 1. 2 sets of homemade, and 1 we bought from Petsmart. One for our couch and one for our bed. Our couch and bed are VERY low.. but Izzie has LP we don't want her jumping. She is so spoiled now she rarely even tries to jump anyways, just lets us know she wants up, even though she could get up herself if she wanted to. But jumping and different stuff CAN cause LP, so I think every Chi shouldn't be allowed to jump up on furniture, however low it may be.

How can I stop a Chi from jumping? Emmie doesn't use stairs and just jumps up!

One of our neighbors builds kitty condo type things and pet steps, we asked him to make Twinkie a ramp. It's very convenient... Our cat tries to use it sometimes too when she's being lazy
