Thanks for any tips!

All depends on your layout, but we've had success getting our geriatric pup up and down from our cabin using a collapsing ramp
. The entire drop is too far, but we finally found a way to set the ramp
from up top onto a cabinet, then from the cabinet either lifting her the short way or having her hop onto a short bench and then onto the ground.
Certainly took some creativity... but now that its dialed in and part of then daily routine no big deal (and worth it as she wants to sleep where we do!)!
