    Default Bed Stairs for Bullies?

    My bed is very very tall, and Matilda is getting sooo unbelievably heavy to pick up!

    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've been wondering about those stairs also, I wanted to get them for Diesel & Molly to get in the truck. Hopefully someone has tried them and will be able to give you advise

This is a live shot! Sorry it is rotated.and geez I don't even have those ones you are thinking of....mine cost $25 and snapped together with a fleece cover over them. I have seen the ones you want in- store...they are totally sturdy, don' t worry -image-jpg

    Where did you find yours for $25? The only ones I've seen for cheaper are basically pillows and the steps would never support a bully!

    I have the same ones as @Momma2Bullies and Remy is the only one who actually uses them. He weighs over 60 pounds so I would say the ones you want will be fine. Oliver will go up to the 2nd step and then want to be picked up and put on the bed, Sebastian won't go near them.

    they were at Petsmart, and they were in an area called " as seen on tv", the pedi- paw thing was there too.... They came in a flat box. The brandies literally " doggy steps"....

    Just a warning.... Brutus fractured his tibia and got a diaphragmatic tear because of steps very similar to these. Not because they couldn't support him, but because he fell off We almost lost him, and then spent the last month in out of the vet. We took them out of our bedroom.

    We have the telebrand steps for the couch than Tank has used since he was a puppy, BUT I wouldn't even think about using for my bed. My bed is much taller and the steps are not super stable. If he missed (as he has before) and falls off the couch it's not too far, but off the bed would be bad I am also looking for a set of good steps for my bed, as he is getting too big to get up or down and would love some feedback. The extra large wooden ones from PetSmart look nice, but they are only 24" tall. I'm not sure that is tall enough.

    Yes, for sure....I am only using these for my couch. I have a high bed also, but the dogs aren't allowed on the bed. These steps are definitely nowhere near high enough for a bed.....
    i am so sorry for injuries and I hope everyone is ok

    Thank you all so much! Well shoot... now I'm worried about Matilda falling off. What else can I do? She's getting harder and harder to lift!
