    Dog boarding ladder-gctid357212

    Anyone have a dog boarding ladder? There are two that I know of one is called "paws aboard" and the other is "WAG Boarding Steps" Have a 110 pound german shepard that want to start boating with.

    I built my own for my last Dalmatian on our semi walk through transom. It was 3/4 marine ply plank about 24" wide and 4' long with indoor/outdoor carpet stapled with stainless steel staples on it that extended past the swim step and into the water. I don't have photos but I drilled two holes in the transom side and hung two bolts in the holes and into the back of a transom step opening on the stern. I stored the plank under the forward berth when no in use. It also worked well to lay onto the dink and the dog just walked right into and out of the dink very easily...

    Those commercial steps take up way too much room for my little 24' boat...

      I thought about building my own as well. The commercial ones are way to expensive. Start at about $200 and go up to $400. I goinig to build the same kind of thing you did, I will post pictures later on.

        Shoudnt be to hard to build one of these.

        Strip of plywood, carpet it, and use throwable seat cushions to float it.

        Now I need a dog.

            If you have a little patience, you can train the dog to get on board using your swim platform.

            Basically, all the dog needs to do is get their front paws on the swim platform, once they do this you put your hand behind their head and pull a little bit, the dog will push against your hand and leverage themselves up and out of the water.
