When it comes to choosing the best dog ramp for labrador, there are some things you need to look out for. The most important being that it need to support the heavy weight that is typical of the labrador. In this article, I am going to do in depth to review the different dog ramp models and recommend the one that is the best fit for a labrador.
Petstep dog ramp review
One of the biggest benefit of Petstep’s dog ramp is its strength which I think is the biggest consideration for a labrador owner. While it can be a bit heavy, the weight is needed to keep the ramp steady when big dogs can on top it. Hence, I am sure pet owners, in the name for the caring of their pet labrador, would not mind carrying the slightly heavier ramp.
Besides being able to support heavy dogs, the Petstep ramp has a rubberized walking surface that allows the dog to have more friction when walking. This helps the dog to better adapt to the ramp and use it.
In terms of assembly, it is very easy as you don’t need any special tools to set it up. The whole ramp can be folded and then stored away easily at the back of your car. However, when you are folding it away for the first time, please be careful. Most people will get their fingers pinched as they weren’t now aware of how the ramp will fold. As long as you pay attention, you can avoid this first time pinch 🙂
Is there any weakness to the product besides being heavy?
For one thing, this ramp will not solve the problem of the labrador jumping off the ramp. Fortunately, labradors are not typical jumpers as they like to walk down steadily so this shouldn’t be an issue. If it is for your dog, you must try train it not to jump when on the ramp. This can be done via the steps I have outlined in this article on best dog ramp under different scenarios.
After much research, Petstep is what I considered to be the best dog ramp for labrador. This is mainly due to its ability to support heavy and large dogs as well as their slip proof walking surface. If you own a labrador which is either old or injured, get this dog ramp. It is totally worth the money.
