Stair lifts for dogs

A stair lift for a dog - is that possible?

Many people who live in properties on more than one level may well own a dog who finds it difficult to climb or go down stairs.

A healthy, strong owner could choose to carry their dog up and down the stairs.

But some owners may not have the strength to carry their pet.

Is a stair lift a sensible option for a dog?

Placing a dog on top of a stair lift seat designed for a human being might be hazardous.

Some people have chosen to install a platform lift, on top of which a dog can lie as it is taken upstairs.

Any owner would have to assess the risks involved. Would their dog be likely to get upset on a stair lift or would they be comfortable?

A large dog may require a much bigger area to be carried on than a smaller animal.
