    My wife has a hard time accessing our pup. I'm building a ramp, how did you folks address this problem?

    I built a transition with a piece 1" x 4" for the ramp to bolt on. I use pony clamps and PVC tubing for the makeshift handrail.

    Nice job ! That should make is easier for her. I am thinking of something similar for three of ur Chihuahuas that are long in the tooth and have problems doing steps /stairs.

    I'm not sure what the exact issue for her is so I'd be hard for me to make a recommendation. I have a prolapsed L4 L5 with fairly severe sciatica and more often than not I don't have full ability to have my left leg CO operate with what my brain is telling it to do. For me I can navigate steps if I have a good strong handhold on the left side. Barring map I need a ramp
