Dog ramp??

Anybody have any experience with dog ramps and lifted jeeps? My 95lb bulldog has started having issues jumping in the back and I don't want his joints getting banged up.

Piece of 1x12 with some grip tape. Some of the alum atv ramps can be folded in half to take up less room. Or if you have the receiver hitch, you can make something out of wood to stick in it. Let the ol' boy get in with two jumps instead of one.

Mexican lowrider kit? I have a 100# Black Lab. He's at the point where he can't jump in like he used to. When he's riding with me I fold the back seats down and since I'm doing that I have room for a long piece of 1/2" plywood with the grip tape. Tape is available at Home Depot, Lowes, etc.

I got a step that goes into the hitch for my Great Danes. It works good when they decide to use it.

95 lb bulldog? I assume we aren't talking about an English? LOL

I still lift ours in, although she has been on a diet for a while now. she is only 55 lbs or so.

To the question I seen a couple interesting ramps made out of PVC and plywood, she ran all over those, they should hold your dog as well. They were made for a much heavier pooch than mine
