Default Dog stairs

I'm getting upset by daisy jumping off the sofa when someone knocks on the door or if there is a noise outside and it's not good for her already crap knee so my uncle who is a carpenter is going to make us some steps for the sofa!!

Could someone let me know how wide steps they have on theirs obviously the height will be exact to my sofa

Thanks

My stairs are 14" wide, and each step is 7" deep. There are only 3 steps. However, if I was to have them custom made (you lucky duck) I would make the whole thing wider, as when 2 try to use them at the same time, one will usually push the other off. lol.
Lo had a bad habit of jumping off couches and things before we got the stairs, and it took some time for her to remember that she was to use those instead of jumping. But now she doesn't jump off, and seems to like taking the "lazy way". Finn doesn't know any different, I swear that boy doesn't think he is even capable of jumping. lol. (I'm very happy for that!)

Be sure to share pictures when they're all done! Are you having them covered in carpet or do you have a plan yet?

I have steps for my sofa, but I'm back at work now. I'll let you know the measurements on mine when I get home, if no one gets to it first. \

Actually, just checked the site where I got mine, they measurements are:

18" L X 14" W X 12" H
Step: 4" Height

Sarah you're lucky you have your own carpenter. lol
My question is even if someone has the stairs will the dog take the time to use them or keep jumping. I guess it would just take training.

Lo took some time getting used to it. I say she wasn't stubborn about it, she just "kept forgetting" lol. Now she uses stairs exclusively.
