Make your pet comfortable using Dog Ramp

By Dobran Litag Subscribe to RSS | February 3rd 2012 | Views:

As an owner, we are the one responsible for the health of our beloved pets, so we have to consider the health risk that they may encounter. Dogs who are fond of jumping in and out of your car, from the bed or sofa and other high places are always at risk on getting joint or spinal injuries and other health issues that may occur due to the impact from jumping, no matter how young or how old they are. So, to reduce these kinds of difficulties, most veterinarians recommend to use a dog ramps to lessen the possibility of getting serious health damages.

Dog Ramps are used to give your dog a safe and smooth walk going down or up from a high object or vehicle. Using a dog ramp may reduce your dog’s risk from getting hurt because of sudden pressure that he may encounter from jumping that may result to serious health problems. Using a dog ramp will not just give your dog comfort but also it help to relieve existing pain that dog still has by reducing the impact that is caused by jumping.

Dog ramps are mostly used on cars for the dog to enter and exit safely, so you have to be perfectly accurate on getting the size of the ramp that your are getting. To get the right size of the dog ramp that you will buy, measure the length from the car to grounds.

Other pets that are capable of walking can also use dog ramps, and it may also help you from loading your heavy equipment onto your car.

Training your dog and other pets to use a dog ramp.

1. First, position the dog ramp near your pet and let them be curious what is that about. Exposing it to them will let them know that the ramp will not harm them.

2. Let your pet play on the ramp and do other thing on it, this may help your dog be more attached to it and feel comfortable.

3. When you see that your pet is getting comfortable to the dog ramp, try to increase the height of the ramp, to test your pet and train them when you start elevating your dog ramp.

4. Once,your pet passed this training, they are now ready to use the dog ramp indoor or outdoor.

Thins to consider before buying a dog ramp.

·Be aware of the weight limits of the dog ramp that you are buying, so that you have an idea if your dog can still use it when he gained weight or so.

· The size of the car or any vehicle that the ramp will be used on. Bigger vehicles needs higher dog ramps.

· The size and weight of your pet.
