    I will let you know if I find anything, because my boy is 50 plus now, too. He can jump on the bed (when he really wants to) but I don't want him jumping off, high bed AND wood floors :0 . Hubby hurt his shoulder last week picking him up, so I need to find something. Do you know any one that does woodwork? I'm beginning to think about building a set...

    I have the plastic ones with covers on the steps for the couch and they work great. For my bed since it is high i have steps tht r deeper and higher. The boys have used them since they were puppies. The r actually covered in carpet and i will take a pic when i can and post

    Kinda funny, with Mimi and tyler we never even thought about a step for the couch. When we got Rudy we had to put a step stool in front of the couch until he was about 6 months old. Mila a little over 5 months at the time jumped onto our very high, waist high, bed. We thought Tyler the spring legged bulldog was the only bulldog that could do that. He would use all 4 legs and jump up like a spring. Mila mastered the couch at about 12 weeks. She is currently, 6-1/2 months, working on her table surfing skills. Our kid found her on our bar table, round glass on top of a full size wine barrel, a couple weeks ago. Never underestimate a bulldog. LOL

    We too have a very tall bed, so what I did, was built a simple box (Rectangle) that is 1/2 the distance high, and then we put fabric on top, stuffed it with an old comforter. So it looks like a cedar chest. VERY Simple to build, I am not a carpenter at all. Gizmo bounces up on 'the chest' and up onto the bed. Hershey does the same - I think its about 18 inches high or equivalent to 2 steps?

    I'm thinking of purchasing these, but since they're online only, I'm not sure if they're sturdy enough for a full-grown bully.

    Do you have any recommendations? Do your babies use doggie stairs?
    I have a super tall bed like you. It would take two or three of those stair things stacked to get them up there.

    Has anyone ever thought of applying rails to the side of the steps or possibly a ramp with rails on it. Also it would be perfect once the dog is on the bed or couch to then just lay it down and slide under bed until further use or you can just leave it out. But my brother who was disabled had a ramp built and they applied rails to it and I thought that would be a great idea for steps or ramp for a dog which I am going to have built for my doggie door when getting it.

    Steps or a ramp with rails would be great! I custom did the steps we had for our JRT's and they worked great for them, but just not so great for Brutus.... still being a puppy he is a little on clumsy side

    My sister has a very very high bed and she has a dashund dog and her boyfriend applied the rails after meister decided to basically run fast and so I told her about the rail so meister wouldn't fall off and my girl when visiting did very well going up and down it once the rails were in place. Only one dog at a time though. My girl doesn't go up on my bed so I don't need them for the bed I will need a ramp with rails for doggie door I am getting (in and out) because I have a step and I don't want them to use doggie door an fall flat on their face so I came up with a doggie ramp with rails design just because of my brother ramp and how his dogs use it very well. Once it is done I will post pics and if I should get to my sisters house soon I will take pics of her steps with rails as well.

    Obtaining a dog license should require more than writing a check.
