    I have a low night stand table that Tate climbs up on to reach the bed; Finn can pretty jump up very easily. I also have an ottomon near the bed that they can use.

    My daddy made some stairs (carpeted no less!) for Samson and Petunia....but I have seen some really sturdy ones for about $50 that can handle the weight of a full grown bully.

    Dually is 58lbs and I have to lift him in and out of bed every day. On occasion he will jump off the bed but its to high for him to jump up on. If I leave him on the floor at night he will wake me up around 1am or 2am by whining and scratching at the side of my bed.

    @Kross225 is so right, the doggy stairs they sell are terribly flimsy and don't support much weight at all. We've got an ottoman at the end of our bed but I think your bed maybe to tall for that.

    I have a set of doggie stairs from walmart. They weren't that expensive and they are well made. Make sure to check what they are made of, I don't think the foam ones will be good for our tubby little guys. The one I purchased, the internal stuff seems to be made of a milk crate type of material. Very thick and sturdy and pretty light for me to handle and move around.
    Always in my heart and never far from my thoughts. See you at the rainbow bridge my sweet little Monkey. R.I.P. Raven.

    We had a ramp for a while, but then I went out and bought a nice bench that is the width of the bed and just the right height for them to jump up on the bench then a little jump onto the bed.

    HRH wouldn't use the steps we got for her (she was afraid of them), so we got rid of them. Now we are discussing looking for more for Amy because once her hips start to be an issue for her she sure can't be jumping up and down the way HRH does.
