Ever since we bought our new king size IKEA bed, our little Dachshund has been unable to get up onto the bed by himself. I made a ramp from which he can jump to a small bench / dog steps that we have next to our bed and then onto the bed itself. This is only for small dogs, because the box, while sturdy, just isn’t meant to hold any substantial amount of weight. Otto thinks he’s a Doberman and the 1″ legs he has, were merely a mistake!

#2 Easy climb window seat for small dogs
I needed something in my grandkids playroom that my small dogs could easily climb up the stairs and look out the window to the street. Came up with this dog steps plus window seat idea that took zero carpentry skills and works perfectly. See the dog window seat.
