    If he is a small dog, a piece of plywood would work. I would make it twice as wide as he is, and twice as long as the steps (distance angled from top of step to bottom. And if he is a large dog, say heavier than 30 pounds, then make it the same size, and reinforce it with 2×4’s. I would use at least 1/2″ plywood or heavier, such as 3/4″.

    If you are going to build a ramp I would use materials that are durable. The ramp itself should have carpet or non skid slats for grip. You make it as close to the steps as possible so there isn’t a big elevation. There are ramps sold at pet stores but I don’t know if they would fit over the steps or somewhere near the steps so the dog can get up them. Have you thought of using a harness or support like device to help lift him up the steps? What I mean is using something that would support the dog while it tries to get up the steps the normal way.

    I built one using a 2×4 frame and plywood, with indoor/outdoor carpeting.


    I also built one for the end of the bed

    And for the dogs’ couch

    The indoor ones have walls of styrofoam, covered with wall panelling, so that it is lighter weight for moving. I also put floor protectors on the bottom. The walls on the outside one are plywood and it is screwed to the porch steps..
