Both our Bassets and our Miniature Pincher sleep in bed with us but all of them have trouble either getting up or down or both. So I ordered these dog stairs and we just love them. The dogs have the freedom to get up & down when they want and I do not have to get in and out of bed to assist them. They are light weight enough for easy moving to make the bed but durable enough to hold the weight of the dogs and stay in place when using them. The last picture is of Sadie, she decided to go back to bed after breakfast this morning. It's a rainy gloomy day, going back to bed sounds pretty good to me I just might join her.
