How to Buy a Dog Boat Ladder on eBay
Paws Aboard Doggy Boat Ladder:
Small dogs like the water too, but sometimes they can’t make do with just a simple dog step or ramp. In that case, the Paws Aboard Doggy Boat Ladder has you covered.Aqua-Stairs® marine ladders are very enabling swim ladders given their staircase design. People and dogs sit or stand on them in the water without having to hold on since these are significantly angled ladders, just like stair steps.You’ll be able to easily attach it to the existing ladder on your boat to allow your canine companion to get in and out of the lake or ocean. You’ll want to be a bit wary of just how large of a dog you let use it, however, it’s definitely not for even medium-large dogs.Not only are doggydocks® safer than dog dock ladders, pup-steps, and dog docks, Dogs are not ergonomically built to climb and serious injuries to hips and joints are common when dogs use dock ladders or steps in water. Moreover, dogs don’t get excited when they see a ladder or stairs on the dock or back of a boat. Water dogs make doggydocks® their own interactive water toy!One ladder for both people and pets: as a dog ladder, dogs can easily get back out of the water without you having to either pick them up or send them back to the shore, tracking mud, etc. back onto your dock making it dirty and slippery. And in case you aren’t watching your pet, it can just come up the dog boat ladder on its own. No need for a dog ramp; it is the perfect dock dog ladder. My dog loves it!Teaching a dog to walk the rungs of a ladder increases back leg awareness and balance and improves your dog's confidence if you take it slow. Great for agility contact training and just as a neat trick!
Start by shaping the dog to interact with the ladder on the ground, and the dog walking between the rungs. Then ask for one foot, two feet then more to be on the rungs or the side. Then only click for feet on rungs. At that point, you can raise one end, then the other so it is just off the ground (about 4 inches) to get your dog to walk the rungs.
I used a clicker at first, then faded it once Jessie (min pin mix) had the main idea. It took about 6 training sessions to get to this point. This was her first try doing the whole ladder with the verbal marker and reward only at the end so she got a jackpot & lots of love!
I am not planning on increasing the incline as I have achieved my goal of improving back foot awareness, balance and confidence. I am also concerned that if she fell from a higher height, she may hurt herself as these rungs are slippery when wet.
