How Does The Doggy Boat Ladder Work Like A Boat Ramp?
The ladder/ramp is designed to provide a ramp approach to your watercraft by being securely attached to almost any boat ladder with three or more steps.
The ladder features a slip-resistant ribbed design that's safe for all pets. The conveniently designed ramp will detach and float next to the watercraft when the boat ladder is needed for human use. This unique dog boat ramp can be attached and removed in seconds and includes a universal grip that fits almost all boat ladders with three or more steps. The Doggy Boat Ladder is rust and corrosion-proof. The highly-durable ramp washes easily with soap and water and is UV resistant.
All Doggy Boat Ladders are of the highest quality and workmanship and built to last in all types of weather conditions. The Doggy Boat Ladder does float in water but should never be used as a floatation device. Paws Aboard ladders/ramps are not designed for human use.

Training Your Dog To Use The Doggy Boat Ladder Like A Boat Ramp
Most dogs learn how to use the Doggy Boat Ladder by Paws Aboard very quickly, because it is just like a ramp that conveniently extends below the surface of the water to reach a swimming dog's feet. Dogs naturally look for a way to get out of the water once they are done retrieving a toy, duck or completing a refreshing swim. To help in the training process here are 2 easy steps to follow:
Once you have moved out to the water simply attach the Doggy Boat Ladder to your craft (requires boat ladder with three or more steps) and begin enticing your pet to use the ramp by placing treats on the Doggy Boat Ladder rungs and call your pet as he is swimming back to the boat.
Gradually move the placement of treats up the Doggy Boat Ladder rungs until the only treat left is sitting just above the ramp on the edge of the boat. Always praise your pet for using the Doggy Boat Ladder and encourage them with verbal commands.
Once your pet feels confident in using the Doggy Boat Ladder they will start using it to exit the boat on their own with little to no training needed.
