Doggydocks Floating Water Ramp for Dogs

Doggydocks Floating Water Ramp for Dogs
June 18, 2009 by Product Reviews
With summer upon us, the doggydocks Floating Water Ramp for Dogs will be a god-send for any dog owner with a swimming pool, waterfront dock, or boat and a “safety first” motto. Every year, horror stories are heard of animals falling into deep water and, being unable to exit, drowning. But with doggydocks, dogs of any size and breed will inherently gravitate to the ramp, which simulates a shoreline, to exit the water—all they need to do is trot up it to the boat platform, dock or swimming pool deck. We like that it’s a portable, interchangeable product that works as easily in one situation (the cottage dock) as the next (the in-law’s pool). Easy to use, the compact ramp lays flat for easy storage and includes the Snapbag floatation system that attaches to its underside. Styled in classic nautical fashion, the lightweight ramp (28 pounds) is constructed of marine grade materials and UV resistant, 100 percent olefin fibers. We especially appreciated the detailed instructions included for attaching the doggy dock and ensuring the correct angle. The doggydock Portable Floating Ramp is available in three options: original ($345), jumbo ($465), and folding ($380).

I purchased one of these, a fold-up model, for my 55 lb. black lab. The floating bag and the PVC pipe, used as struts, both came off after 2-3 uses by my dog to return to the dock. They told me that my dog weighed 10 Lbs more wet than dry and the product is not recommended for a dog larger than 60 lbs. The company's policy is no returns if the product has been used or after 10 days. I would not recommend this product due to the poor design and customer service.
