Homemade Dog Steps in Training and Behavior discussion Posted May 28, 2010 · Edited May 28, 2010 by kjw Batmom's steps have saved my butt countless times, starting with Lou when he dislocated his hip, and to this day Romi is using them to get in and out of the van. They've been going for about 4 years and are still in pretty good shape! I can't say enough good things about them. I did recently end up trimming their width a bit, so they would not take up quite so much room in the vehicle. Thank you so much, Jey!
