Rise Height & Number of Steps

Select from 4", 8", 12" or 16"...whatever you need ~ even a 2" rise with optional Short Steps™
The average rise between human steps is 7". Doesn't sound like much, does it? Well, to a dog with short legs or health issues it can be an insurmountable obstacle. On the other hand, a healthy dog with long legs may find that steps every 7" is more of a hindrance than a help; they might prefer a 12" rise between steps. Whatever the case for your dog, Good Steps can adjust to the need.

Features include:
  • Adjust rise in 4" increments
  • Optional Short Steps™ reduces rise to just 2" !
  • Configure with two to four steps

Change Tread Depth

From 8" to over 24" every dog finds their happy spot
Ergonomically speaking, traditional dog stairs are not built for dogs. Period. The 8" tread on a set of dog steps from your local pet store might work for a bouncy young terrier but present a hazard to a larger dog. And dogs with long bodies typically do better with longer tread depths. Makes sense, right?
TIP: Measure the distance between your dog's legs from front to back. That is the minimal distance an average dog needs between the middle of the upper step and the leading edge of the step below it. This rule-of-thumb works for a lot of dogs, not all though. You have to take into account their health, body type and other factors.

Tread Adjust-ability:
  • Quick release adjustment levers
  • Adjust from 8" to 24" on lowermost step
  • Tread width is a stable 16"

Ten Tread Strip Combinations

Treads are designed for safety and to help with eyesight issues
Slipping is one thing sure to freak out a dog. Slipping on a step can also result in injury. Our non-slip tread strips are designed to be easy on paws while providing a safe and secure step area for your pooch.
Another unique aspect of our tread strips is how they help with vision. Did you know that dogs are essentially colorblind? Most of their world appears in shades of gray and brown. That is why contrasts are so important and why we build our steps in a light color and then equip them with dark tread strips.
Our specialty tread strips, Glow-in-Dark and Reflective, assist dogs using the steps at night or in low-light situations as well as those with deteriorating eyesight.

Tread Strip Features:
  • Step design offers high contrast
  • Tread strip material is soft on paws
  • Specialty strips help with eyesight issues
  • PVC Free so no harmful off gassing
