I have watched my poor Trixie Belle struggle so many times to get on the couch like the other dogs do and she just couldn’t seem to make it. I bought her some steps from a retail store and they didn’t work for her as the steps were too narrow and she is a long dog. So after much frustration of seeing her struggle I finally decided to make some steps for her. The idea came from seeing boxes that were being mailed to my Dh stacked up together. So here is what I came up with.
I took 3 of the military flat rate boxes that were used and filled them with something that would add weight to them as well as keep them from crushing in. For instance, one of them has old bathroom rugs that I will not be needing. Then I duct taped them together.
I then cut out some fleece to sew together to make a cover for them. I did not measure the fleece, only drew an outline of the boxes and cut out the pieces.
Side view. I also placed the steps on a piece of rubber drawer liner so they would not move around.
So now my sweet baby can get up on the couch all by herself and take a nap. 🙂
