If you have a pool and dogs, you really ought to look at getting the Skamper-Ramp. I haven’t tested it out but anything that can help your dog get out of a pool quickly could save his life.
Thanks to Smarter blog for the heads-up on the Skamper-Ramp.
Here’s what SmartPak which carries Skamper-Ramp has to say about the product:
The Skamper-Ramp protects animals from drowning 24/7. From frogs to dogs, the Skamper-Ramp allows animals to exit pools and walled ponds without human assistance. Constructed from extremely strong plastic, the Skamper-Ramp is UV- and chemical- resistant (you will not see any discoloration or algea/mildew buildup), strong, lightweight, and highly durable. The Skamper-Ramp can also be used to help your dog onto a dock or boat! Easy to install. Hardware included. Made in the USA. Skamper-Ramp for dogs up to 45 lbs (13″ x 25″), Skamper-Ramp Big Dog for dogs up to 90 lbs (13″ x 40″).
