JUST BRILLIENT, 15 Nov 2011
Having a Vauxhall Estate car my 11yr Golden Retriever was having problems jumping into the car, so with the help of myself he would put his front paws up and I would give him a helping hand into the car. This went on for weeks, until August this year when I pulled a muscle in my neck helping him into the car - which ended in pain for two weeks and a trapped nerve in my arm. So we looked for the most suitable and light weight car dog ramp. Found the Trixie on line. It arrived within 3 days. First to get my dog used to it, we got him use to walking along it in the house and making it a game. Then put it between the patio door (width of ramp) into the garden so he had to walk down it to go out side. This took no time at all. With the younger Goldie joining it, became a game. Next day was to use it to get into the car. It took just one tipbit to get my dog to walk up and down it. We use it every day and he took to it like a duck to water - even the younger Goldie walks up it - It's a brillient device - takes up hardly any space only 4.5 kilos - my dogs get into the car with ease, and I don't have to strain lifting him. But now Nov and I still have the trapped nerve in my arm. Wish I had invested in this product long ago.
