Our 12 yr old golden retriever is beginning to have difficulty jumping up on our bed. We see tons of ramps and steps online, but worry if any are good and safe, oe even if she'll take to them.
We thought of hiring a handyman to build some steps and add carpet to them. We will do anything to keep our Molly close to us, as she is our baby.
Has anyone had success with using indoor doggie steps next to the bed?
Thank you very much.

Golden Retriever > Best dog ramps or stairs for aging golden trying to jump onto bed

Hello. We have never been fortunate enough to have a golden that lived this long, but our dog is now 12- still happy and healthy, but now having difficulty jumping on our bed- which is a pure delight for us and for her.
Has anyone had experience with buying a dog ramp or doggie steps to help a 65 lb dog safely get up on the bed? There are so many, many models out there, made from all kinds of materials. We just don't know what is the safest for our beloved aging princess.
Any ideas would be most greatly appreciated
