Hazel's Ramp

We have a new addition to our master bedroom. Hazel has been having some difficulty jumping up to the bed so Andrew built her a dog ramp. She doesn't spend much time on our bed while we're home (she usually is on the couch or at our feet in the kitchen) but we know that it is her choice spot when we leave the house. Each time we come home, we have to fluff the pillows she has sat on top of:

So when she started whining at the floor to the side of the bed, we knew we needed to figure out a solution before she hurt herself trying to jump up. Andrew went to the Home Depot and spent some time in the garage and came up with our new ramp. It only took a few days of training and about half a bag of treats to teach her to go up.

Unfortunately, she doesn't yet know how to use it to go down. Hopefully that will come with time.
