Dog Steps Reviewed: Pet Gear Easy Step II Pet Stairs
Mom is always trying to make me be careful and not run and jump on the furniture…..at least without steps! Mom bought me these portable dog steps in November 2012 so I can get on and off the sofa without injuring myself.
The Pet Gear Easy Step II Pet Stairs measure 14” wide x 14” and were easily put together with a few snaps. They are extremely lightweight and easy to move from room to room. They are the perfect height for me and getting on the sofa. Even my brother Nutter The Cat uses them! Mom’s big bed is very high up, so these would be too short for that.
The website says they will hold 75lbs (I’m 27lbs), but Mom doesn’t think they would hold up to that kind of weight. When I run up or down them, she says she does see them give a little and the snaps holding them together are a bit flimsy. However, it’s going on 21 months, and they are still holding strong for me!
All and all Pet Gear Easy Step II Pet Stairs is doing the job nicely, and is very inexpensive for dog steps (approximately $25). I think Mom should pick me up a couple more sets of dog steps for other pieces of furniture, especially her big tall bed!
Pros: Great for small dogs and cats, easy to put together, easy to clean and affordable ($25-30)
Cons: A bit thin and flimsy.

I have a Chihuahua mix and I have stairs that he used to get on the bed but he jumps off the bed I’m starting to worry about his front legs, I’m trying to get him to use the stairs to go down but he won’t and he jumps up on the stool to get on the other bed in the other room and jumped off the bed ( carpet floors )I’m worried about his front legs how can you help what can I do to get him to go down the stairs I try but he won’t do it.
Thanks, for your message Grace. I would most definitely talk with your vet. It’s hard saying without an image of your room. I would look at possibly eliminating the foot stool, adding a few different steps or ramps in those locations. I would also work on teaching him to use the steps by rewarding him for taking one step up and one step down. Work on the floor and work on the top of the bed. A little treat trail up and down the steps might help. I do offer phone/Skype sessions if you need personalized help. ~Tonya
