The link I provided is for interior steps.

If I got one of ChipBruce's pet ramps, I'd have to retrain DW.

Our Bearded Collie, Freddie, is now almost eleven years old and no longer likes steps or getting in and out of the back of a SUV. We bought a folding ramp for him and it is working just fine. Between it and his thyroid meds he thinks he is a puppy again.

Our smaller dogs prefer the ramp over steps as well so we often have a "dog jam" at the ramp while Freddie tries to herd everyone in...

Well ccondos it would be better on your back than picking the DW up and carrying her upstairs! Positive reinforcements and lots of treats may be the ticket. And one of those clickers. Especially the clicker.

I bought some carpet at Lowes, cut to fit the steps and glued it down with Contact Cement. After almost 2 years it has not come loose.

My Chihuahuas are not used to steps and won't go up or down the outside steps. I purchased these step covers and they are getting better with it.

Assuming these are the external steps, are there little holes in the surface of the steps?

Those are some nice ramps,,,
I made a ramp much like those a few years back when our Bichon got to old to climb the 2 steps back into the house !!! She like many dogs would go up the basement steps,,, but would not go down !!!

I would sure hate to see a dog get a nail caught in one of those small holes !!!
Better cover with carpet or something !!!
