Steps to bed?

I tried to search the forum for this topic but couldn't find anything. (or maybe didn't use the right key word).

Does anyone have little steps to the bed. Nala jumps up and I try to put her down but she often jumps off. I worry about it because it is so high.

Any previous threads on this or suggestions?

Here's a link to one of the threads on this topic:

If you Google "dog steps" or "dog stairs" you'll find a few available, too. I love the set that my son made me, but I couldn't have made them myself.

You may want to consider a ramp instead of stairs. When Abby developed a little back problem, my vet said ramps are much easier on the back than stairs. If you decide to go the ramp route, I would recommend petclassics.com. They have several standard sizes/heights, inclines and also will do "custom" lengths/inclines, etc. They're very stable but light enough to move easily and put away. I have three of their ramps for different places. The oldest one is 5 years old and is as good as new. Very nice people, too, based in Nebraska.

I have steps for Henry to go up to the bed which he used about half the time.
I want him to save his hips and all for old age because I want him around for a long long time.
