Our bed is over waist high. Every time I am in the bedroom, Puddles sits at the bottom and barks, waiting for me to lift him up. I have sat him up there as many as 6 times a morning while getting ready for work. He has no problem jumping down (even if I don't like it fearing of breaking a leg).

Any one have high beds? What kind of set up do you have that allows your fur ball to get on the bed alone?

Thanks

We have an upholstered bench at the end of the bed. Our bichon hops up there first and then to the bed. The Maltese girls aren't jumping up on anything - yet.

we got stairs from www.petstairs.net


they basically got that green foam from Joannes or whatever fabric store and made steps. you could do it yourself and make 3 or 4 steps. it'd be expsensive...that green foam costs a lot.

I had this chair by my bed, but cloud won't use it.
It's funny when he doesn't jump high enough. Maybe we"ll remove the box mattress since Cloud has bad knees.

We have a really high sleigh bed and I bought a cheap step stool from Lowe's and it works just fine for the dogs. It has two steps to get up. Josie does not use it anymore after having her babies, which is okay because of her knees but Pudge and the rest of the gang have no problem with it...

LOL If I take a running jump I can get into it, otherwise I have to use the little steps on the side. My husband puts his foot between on the boxspring and uses that as a step.

The bed is higher than my kitchen counter and when we have company, people are always wanting to see if they can get in the bed without using the step. LOL

Dang that is a high bed!

My bed is about 32 inches high. Lexi prefers to sleep in her bed and is not afraid of jumping off the bed to get to her bed. For that reason she is not allowed on the bed. I was thinking of making steps but decided against it for now. I'm just too afraid of her jumping off and getting hurt. It is just easier to not allow her up on the bed.

The stool is made of plastic and it is about 2 to 2 1/2 feet tall total and there are two steps and the third jump is on the bed. I know I kept looking on the internet for some to buy and just could not find anything. It only cost like $12-13 so it was a cheap trial and it worked...I would still like my hubby to build a ramp so Josie could get up, that girl gives me my exercise getting in and out of bed at night for her whims of when she needs to jump off to check something out and then can't get back up... ughhhh
got to love her
