We put the individual stick-down carpets from CW on our indoor steps, with a rug on the landing as well. And we did the same thing on our outdoor steps; the outdoor carpet/synthetic grass (only in brown) type stuff, also held on with springs.
I did the indoor steps not only for Fred's ease but also to protect the wood from his toenails. Dual purpose for the outdoor steps as well; he gets traction and prevents a lot of sand/dirt being tracked in.
I discovered quite by accident that if I hold Fred's leash tense (slight upward tug) when he's coming up or going down the outside steps it not only helps and supports him, he's also more confident.
Of course there's weight to consider. Fred weighs 22 lbs., right on the nose, at every vet weigh-in. Little stinker, wish I had that problem.
If age is a state of mind, and I've lost my mind, I'm AGELESS, right?
Give me 40 acres and I'll turn this rig around:
