Should You Buy the Latest Solvit Dog Ramp?
Petsafe Solvit Dog Ramp is one of those brands that has dedicated its efforts to making groundbreaking products for pet owners. It offers all types of solutions from boat ramps to the Solvit Dog Ramp which hundreds of dog owners swear by. However, we don’t expect you to buy a Solvit ramp based on this alone, especially because the company manufactures many different types of ramps. That said all ramps are designed solely for pet use. Made from a combination of aluminium and plastic they are lightweight, sturdy and weigh around 13 lbs., which most people can carry around.
Out of all the ramps made, the Solvit Deluxe Telescoping Pet Ramp is perhaps the most popular amongst pet owners. Though the question that many people reading this are probably asking is what makes it so special? Well if you’re a dog owner looking for a ramp, read on!
Easier to Train Your Dog to Use the Ramp
One of the best things about the Solvit deluxe telescoping pet ramp is the fact that it is easier to train most dogs to use it. The ramp is designed to make it easier for dogs to use, and most canines also enjoy using it. However, you’ll still need to train your dog to use it, using the following steps:
- Start by laying the ramp flat on the ground and then place a few of your dog’s favourite treats or toys on it.
- Praise and offer reassurance to the dog as you train them to walk across the ramp in this position.
- You’ll then want to incline the ramp slowly in small increments and continue with the training prior to using it with your vehicle.
Easy to Clean and Maintain
The folding dog ramp is also very easy to clean and keep clean. The rai
ls on the ramp are pre-lubricated with some household paraffin wax. In most cases, you won’t need to re-apply it, but if it becomes try, it is easily available at most home improvement stores.
Users will find that the plastic and aluminium parts are very easy to clean with simple soap and water. However, the high traction tread will have to be cleaned using a mild detergent applied with a stiff brush.
Dog Ramp for Truck Warranty
The Solvit Dog Ramp is backed by a warranty. The warranty states that it (the ramp) is free from defects and workmanship errors for up to a period of a year. However, the ramp is only to be used by pets, and not for humans and will not bear heavy loads. Placing heavy loads on the ramp will void its warranty.
The Solvit Deluxe Telescoping Pet Ramp is one of the easiest to use, and most versatile folding ramps available. The length is easy to vary between 39” and 72” making it a versatile ramp for most vehicles.
Deploying it is easy too place the top end of the surface above and slide out the bottom to the required length. Stowing it is just as easy by sliding it back.
