We used to have a ramp at the end of the bed for Scooby, but I tripped over it one day and smashed my shoulder so that had to go. Now we have one of those little kiddie block foam sofas that fold out to a bed. We keep it at the end of our bed and Scooby uses it all the time. We bought it at Walmart for about $16. Scooby won't use steps at all, neither up or down so this is perfect for him to be able to hop up and down from the bed.

Oh you ladies are quite right, why spend big $$$$$ on items like steps etc. only to find that our little furkids won't use them.
We saw some steps on a web site that we thought would be great for Scooby, well the steps were nice and wide and had carpet on them too, just the right height for our bed as well, and like the silly fools we are when it comes to Scooby we went ahead and ordered them. When they arrived we put them in the lounge room to see if Scooby would perhaps get used to seeing them, then we moved them to the bed, and you guessed it, no go from his lordship. Those steps are now in the spare room along with other items we have bought that he won't use.

I am thinking we are going to just stick with the block foam kiddie bed as we know he will use it and never attempts to jump over it to the floor like he did the steps.

Janet -

You should put your steps for sale on the forum. Alot of posters have asked about steps. I love mine. All five of the critters use them, up and down. And because each step has a lid, I also have a toy box, clothes box, and a paper-towel box for accidents. All in one
I'm getting another one for the living room


I was also thinking, I have stairs in my house. I'm sure that's why mine took to them so quickly.

We have steps down to the basement and we go down there a lot too but Scooby refuses to go down, he used to come up but since he had his slight LP we stopped allowing him to do that too so now he just waits to be carried either way, smart little guy I reckon


As for the steps, I thought about selling them but hubby says one day he may get over his fobia, Scooby that is..lol, and perhaps just use them, I doubt it though but we will just leave them where he can sniff them and play the waiting game for a little longer. He did try them but he seems to panic and scampers up so fast that he knocks his back legs on them, and on the down he just leaps right over the top of the whole thing
