Side Entry Pet Step For Dog / Older Dog

Side Entry Pet Step For Dog / Older Dog

I had the dilemma last month with my recent 2 door JK purchase and my dog.... he did not want to jump up into the front seat of it. Though he's getting older he did it a few times without a problem but then stubbornly refused. I wanted something that would work for the side doors rather than the back so he could sit up front and not be stuck behind the back seat. And I am not looking to remove the back seat just yet. Plus I like having my shotgun rider!

Ramps didn't seem compact enough. I was debating between the Snaggle Paw accordian style steps ($60) or the sturdier Petloader ($250), but the Wrangler doors are not wide and they either wouldn't fit, or if they did it was for a much smaller dog than my 80 pound guy. Then I found this....

RANGE KLEEN GRAY 2 STEP DOG ASSIST

I LOVE THIS!!* Quick and easy, one hand operation, weighs less than 6 pounds, folds 2" flat, holds up to 300 pounds, doesn't open 5 feet long like some others, and it fits the side door (or anywhere!). My dog took to it right away. He goes everywhere with me and we are constantly in and out of the vehicle. This makes it a breeze. Double breeze.

You have to see their YouTube video.*After seeing that I was sold:

Good luck, and just remember that whatever you choose you can always return it. 'Tis the American way!

I don't have a dog, but had fusion surgery on my back last May. I could have used that step getting into and out of my Jeep and my truck.
Just recently I've been able to get into/out of either without a step. I had a little kids potty stool on a rope that worked for me but that step would be more dignified.

Good Luck, L.M.

Are you sure the side-entry models from Petloader will not work in a Wrangler ? They seem narrow enough - https://www.petloader.com/pet-loader...entry-vehicles


Just curious, as I already use the wider model (and the Ottostep) myself in my build https://goo.gl/photos/1cTpW6XeCLgLT1hF8

Hi @Dana _Bratt - just checking back in with an update. Bentley was pretty stubborn at first, and insisted on trying to jump over the steps, but after a couple of tries, he now gets it and uses the steps every time. I am very happy with them, and would definitely recommend them to anyone who needs a step like this. They fold up easily and are easy to carry in the Jeep. Thanks for the suggestion.

You had recommended PetLoader on another post and I almost bought the Light or Ultra Light in the 5 step. It seems light they would work, but the $250ish price tag had me second guessing (and the husband!). And I WISH I could use that Ottostep! That one looks great.

In the end, dollar and use wise this product works better than I could have imagined. Diesel is my trained service dog and goes everywhere with me. It's so quick to pull out and open with one finger and the same way for fold up.

The BEST would be those fold up stairs on the side like on an RV. Something that folds up into the cab of the Jeep on the side of the passenger seat. Can't have them underneath because we still need our rock sliders of course. I thought of it first! I'll make millions. 😁

Well, they have this one, but it's even more expensive

I love that the Range Kleen step is also compact enough to use between the cars in a parking lot to get him in the drivers door. I would need a lot more room with those extendable ones.
