My husband built the stairs going up to our rice bed and put carpet on them. Babies love it! They wouldnt be able to get up ir down without them. We have store bought ones at our couch

She doesn't understand what the stairs are for. She has to be taught to use them. I just started using stairs for the first time with my chi. I got on the floor at the bottom of the stairs & placed Midgie on them & pat the bed. She was a little uneasy the first time, then I did it again & patted each step & she was a little more comfortable. It only took 2 tries & now she uses them with ease & never jumps down anymore. Don't forget to praise while learning as this reinforces what you want them to do.

I got a little ottoman/footstool thing on special from Target that stands almost exactly half as high as my bed. Butterbean immediately figured out how to use it, and since then gets up and down with the greatest of ease.

One thing I've noticed is that if you have wood floors sometimes the lighter weight steps slide a bit when the pups are using them, and it can really freak them out. A little rug underneath will fix the problem.

I have 2 sets of doggy steps and even though 2 of my chis are good jumpers they use the stairs all the time to get up and down off our furniture. It is safer for them and gives us some peace of mind. Our little one Ginger uses them all the time and never tries jumping thank God. I highly recommend them to anyone with a small dog!
