Looking for info concerning dog ramps. Folding versus telescoping?

I have a folding aluminum ramp. It's as compact as one that slides and much more sturdy.

I don't use them, but I have seen a couple of the folding, both aluminum and plastic. Both were nice. One of the people I train with has a heavy duty plastic folding ramp and it seems more than adequate and she (not a very big girl) has no problem setting it up and taking it down. Let me know what you decide. I have thought about getting one, but I think my dogs would just jump over it.

I bet if you ask Buck real nice he will get one of his drug reps to buy you one :lol: :lol: :lol:

Yeah, but it will have "Viagra, helping you get it up" painted on the side of it.....

I have been using the folding plastic ramp for at least 2.5 years. You need to teach the dogs to use it, but the puppies think its great. Folks who bough the telescoping kind did not like it as it would slide as the dog tried to use it. The folding ramp I have is version II, the original had metal pins that locked it and a slick surface. Version two unfolds in seconds and is no-slip. I walk up it to get into the back of the truck at times.
