if she's mild ample, lift her in. when she's too large, she's almost certainly capable to get in utilizing a very good ramp. if there is a from the ramp to the car, you ought to have a even bigger ramp.

    Many of us use a ramp with our Bassets lol. However, word of caution, make sure she can’t slip sideways off the ramp – some are better than others about using a ramp. Personally we’ve never used one with ours (because of the problem with storing the ramp!). We encourage ours to put their front legs on the tailgate and then boot them up. We never allow them to jump out however because of their fronts (it’s more to do with their fronts than their backs actually, although it does depend on the age of your hounds).

    Try it and see how she gets on – we’ve used ramps all round the houses we’ve lived in in the past, where there have been steps. But as this is a puppy, I’d think you’d probably do best to lift her in, and out!

    Add – Just to dispel the myth about Bassets having back problems like Dachshunds do. Not true! In all the years we’ve had Bassets (37+) we have only had one who developed a back problem (spondylitis) when he was 8. And once we’d stabilized the pain etc., he lived comfortably until he was 14. Their owners have the bad backs, not the Basset. And check with your breeder about this … vets too are all too quick to trot this false information out.

    As a puppy, it would be okay to lift her if you are able. Teaching her to use a ramp is a great idea, as she will soon be too heavy to be lifting and still need to get in and out of a vehicle. Jumping and and out could easily cause injury to such a heavy short legged breed. Good for you for thinking about your dogs welfare.

    A ramp would be good or just a small box for it to step on on its way in and out.

    a ramp would be more suitable, because the older she gets the more she will weigh ,

    yes I would get a ramp and she will then be used to it when an adult. She may not bother with it if you get one later when she is grown and heavy

    The ramp would be a lot better. While you could pick the puppy up now and lift in and out of the car, when full grown it would be a lot harder. I’d get the pup used to using a ramp to get in and out and you’ll never have any problems.

    You are a smart owner – I never thought about the short legged dogs but that’s a wonderful idea.
