Re: Getting a dog (in dog box) in and out of car

Re: Guiding Lily up/down a ramp

Hooligan needs guidance on stairs now, following a vestibular attack that left her peripheral perception out of whack. I'm using her Roughwear harness, the Webmaster with the handle on the back, to 'steer' her as she goes up and down.

The handle makes it easy for me... and my wobbly knees.

Maybe doing something similar, along with Mrs D's excellent suggestions, might help Lily feel less reticent to walk up/down a ramp?


Can Lily do stairs, do you think stairs might be easier than a ramp? If so, there is this:

The three step version, set to the side door, might be easiest for all.

(Although, IMO a ramp would seem gentler on arthritic joints, especially going downwards, once a dog decides a ramp is tolerable.)
