If you're the owner of a large dog then you'll know only too well the difficulty and strain they face when trying to get into the boot of the car, up steep steps, onto the sofa or even onto your bed (provided you're happy with them being there!).
That's exactly where dog ramps for large dogs come in. Specifically designed to support the biggest breeds, these tough, sturdy ramps will take the strain for you, helping to protect your beloved dog's joints, muscles and ligaments.
When choosing a dog ramp for a large dog, it's worth considering the quality, durability and weight capacity of the ramps on the market to ensure you get the best value for your money. While some of the low-budget, cheaper dog ramps may be appealing, it's often worth spending a little extra to avoid finding yourself back on the market in a few months time. At Dog Ramps UK, we like to offer free, impartial advice and recommendations, helping you to make informed decisions that will work out best for you and your pup.
By far the best-reviewed and most popular dog ramps for large dogs comes from the team at PetSafe. Available in two sizes (long and extra-long), PetSafe Solvit Telescopic Dog Ramps come in at the top end of the market for quality and durability. With a weight capacity of up to 180kg (that's 28 stone), these extra-strong dog ramps extend to 180cm and 220cm respectively. Perfect for getting large dogs in and out of cars, the PetSafe Solvit range comes with the reassurance of shopping with one of the big pet accessory brands.
If the PetSafe Solvit ramps are beyond your budget, the Doghealth Bi-Folding Lightweight Dog Ramp is a great alternative. Built to support dogs of up to 90kg (14 stone), they're less solid than the more expensive options, but if your dog is within weight then these lightweight, folding dog ramps are a great choice for those on a tighter budget. Unfolding to a full length of 155cm, it's a great choice for getting big dogs in and out of car boots while, at just 5kg, it's lightweight and super easy to use.
