Pet Loader is available is several different models. Models differ primarily in platform (step) material and width of the platform. Our aluminum models are lighter and easier to handle. ABS platforms tend to be more rugged.

Measure vehicle from the pavement to where your pet will enter the vehicle such as the cargo floor, seat, truck bed, etc.

Measuring Pet Loader

Choose the number of steps, 3, 4, or 5, that is right for for the height of your vehicle (some models are also available with 6 steps). Measure vehicle from the pavement to where your pet will enter the vehicle such as the cargo floor, seat, truck bed, etc., then see our height chart below.

There are three step widths available for the Pet Loader; 12″, 16″ and 18″ wide. When choosing your Pet Loader size and width, be sure to consider where you will be using them and the agility level of your dog.

Larger dogs—particularly those with compromised mobility—will do better with wider 16″ or 18″ steps. Smaller dogs will do just fine with the smaller 12″ width.

When using Pet Loader dog stairs for cars and sedans, take a moment to check the available space when your door is open. (Some car doors do not open as fully as others and may only allow a 12″ wide model to fit properly.)

Pet Loader dog stairs will last longer than most people keep their cars, the Pet Loader can be customized in the future to fit any car height, by adding or removing steps at any time.

Pet Loader will safely carry all dogs!
