Every Tale Has a Beginning

Our recent family addition, ‘Archie’ the Dachshund, has found it very frustrating that he never gets the best seat in the house and the size of his legs (shh! don’t tell him, he thinks he’s a Great Dane) means that he can’t climb onto the sofa to watch his favourite TV shows, ‘Dachshund Abbey’ and ‘Silent Woofness’ (sorry!)

To make it easier for Archie we decided to build him a ramp. After a little tempting with some tasty treats and once he’d realised he wasn't being made to take part in a crazy indoor carpeted ski jump contest, Archie can now climb up when he’s looking for some comfy sofa time and likes to slide back down on his belly when it’s time for food (a strict diet of German sausages of course).

If you have a vertically challenged hound or perhaps a cat who is far too dignified to leap up on anything then perhaps you’d both like a ramp to make the route to your lap a far simpler and safer one.

Dimensions

Made in four different heights and two widths, our pet ramps are designed to fit your pet and the furniture in your home. This ramp comes in two sections which can be placed in a straight line or angled to take less space. This height is suited to high sofas and chairs or beds. Hannah originally asked us to make this model for her dog Theo, to help relieve the strain on his joints when climbing to the sofa.

  • Height: 18” (46cm)
  • Length: 50” (127cm)
  • Width: Either 12” (30cm) for cats and small dogs, 15" (38cm) for medium dogs or 18” (46cm) for large dogs
  • The high sides extend 6" (15cm) higher than the ramp height stated above for our 12" (30cm) wide ramps, 8" (20cm) for our 15" (38cm) wide ramps and 10" (25cm) for our 18" (46cm) wide ramps.

Gradient

Most pet steps and ramps available to buy have a climbing gradient of between 37 and 56 degrees. They're made this way to take as little space as possible. This does however sacrifice the comfort of your pet and with continued use may lead to greater strain being placed on their joints.

Each of our pet ramps has a gradient of 30 degrees which is towards the lower end of UK staircase design guidelines (30 to 45 degrees). This is ideal for the majority of pets. If you do however think your pet would benefit from an even gentler gradient then please contact us before placing an order and we'll let you know the difference this would make to the ramp length and price. 

To get an idea of the 30 degree gradient, take a tape measure and measure up the front of your sofa or bed to a height of 12" (30cm) and then from that point measure diagonally down to the floor to a distance of 21" (53cm).

Colour

Each pet ramp is covered in quality household carpet to help blend with your decor. The deep twisted pile has been specially chosen to prevent claws from becoming trapped whilst providing essential additional grip during use. Your only decision is which of the six colours to choose. If you're struggling to decide on a colour then we can send carpet samples free of charge.

Bespoke Service

If our standard ramp design or size doesn't quite fit the bill then we can help to bring your own design to life. Send us a message with your idea and we’ll get ramp designing.

Optional Additions

We have a range of options to customize your ramp. If you'd like to choose any or all of these then please contact us after placing your order and we'll let you know of any additional cost.

  • Go Bold

Why not mix and match the carpet. We can create your ramp at no extra cost in two of our carpet colours. Just choose one colour when placing your order and contact us afterwards to tell us you'd like to go bold!

  • Bottoms Up

To keep things as lightweight as possible, our ramps come without a base. If you'd like your Pet Ramp to include a fully carpeted base then please contact us after placing your order.

  • Tag It

Add your pet’s name to their ramp with a beautifully carved wood name plaque.

  • Hideaway

Why not go for an open-sided ramp and give your pet a cosy place to hide away. We can cut away one or both sides ramp and line the underneath in matching or contrasting carpet of your choice.

We received your ramp this morning and couldn't be happier (and neither could Boo). The ramp is extremely well made, perfect size for our bed and matches our carpet exactly. Thank you for the quick service, communication and amazing product.

I think the ramp is lovely and much more elegant than the ones I've made.

Gary & Dash

Just a quick message to say the ramp arrived and is fantastic. Very high quality and sturdy. A real piece of quality workmanship.
