Top 5 Dog Stairs

Sometimes our dogs need a little assistance – perhaps they’re too small, short, elderly, injured or just not that graceful and as a result you’re looking for some dog stairs so your dog has better access to the couch, bed or some other higher level. We’ve noticed a lot of really unattractive and poor quality dog stairs on the market, so we decided to search for some stylish options that we think our Dogsized fans will enjoy. Here are our Top 5 Dog Stairs:

The innovative design of these dog ramp steps by Pet Studio converts dog steps into an easy-to-use ramp. So depending on what your dog prefers you have either dog steps or a dog ramp and it also folds flat for storage.

We can’t resist the modern design of these dog stairs by Pets Stop. While they are sleek, they are not slick, as there is a non-slip sand coating on steps to give your dog secure footing. They’re make of beautiful, real maple wood mounted on a wrought iron frame and there are plastic non-skid tips at the bottom to protect your floors.

The Dog Crate – An Essential Part of Your Home

Dog Crate Kobi

Kobi in his Dog Crate

At first, I wasn’t sure if we would be pro or con dog crates, but the dog crate has turned into a very positive part of Kobi’s life, so we definitely recommend them. Kobi’s dog crate has become his apartment in our apartment. First, we put the crate in a good spot in our apartment so Kobi can still look out and see what’s going on in a variety of places. Secondly, we feed our dog in his crate and it’s a place to him to escape to when he’s tired. We made his crate comfortable and have it covered with a blanket on all three sides and the top.

As stated by the Humane Society, “crate training uses a dog’s natural instincts as a den animal. A wild dog’s den is his home, a place to sleep, hide from danger, and raise a family. The crate becomes your dog’s den, an ideal spot to snooze or take refuge during a thunderstorm.” This is exactly explains how Kobi’s dog crate works in our home. Of course, we also used the crate to help house-train our dog. Kobi was a bit slow to adapt to only “going” outside, but crate training helped a lot and he’s housebroken now.

If you’re looking for a great dog crate, there are a variety of options from:
