Would not Recommend
I purchased the small ramp because of my cats. Lost a cat in the pool and thought this would be a good purchase to protect the rest of my cats. I also have small dogs and wanted to protect them as well. Attaching it to the pool was easy but the ramp does not even support my poodle or pomeranians even though it specifies "small/medium". It terrified my dogs and I'm not throwing one of my cats in the pool to test if it will support them! It kept sinking and my dogs could find no purchase to keep from sliding off. Perhaps the larger ramp would have done better but I don't have 200 lb dogs and the price is exorbitant for the construction and material. I think a piece of styrofoam cut into a wedge would do just as well if not better.
Very disappointed with this purchase.

Absolute need for pet owners!
I lost a dog in our pool and have lived in fear until finding the Skamper Ramp. We purchased the large one and have installed and taught our 50 pound dog to use - which she does with ease! I now have peace of mind that I hopefully will never live through that horror again. If you have an inground pool with only ladders - this is a must!

Saved my cat's life the first week I had this!
I have had my pool for a couple of years and always wanted to purchase a scamper ramp for my pets saftey. I finally broke down and bought the largest one, as I have pets of all sizes. After installing the ramp, which is a sinch. I saw my cat playing one day on my deck and sure enough she fell right in the pool. I hurried to save her, but she had swam to the ramp and was letting herself out of the pool by the time I got out there. This ramp has paid for itself by saving my cat's life.

This is a must have for pool and pet owners.
We own a Jack Russell that loves to swim. In March of 2009 we purchased a home with a pool. We feared our dog would jump in without our knowledge and possibly drown. We needed something to assist our dog to exit the pool. I figured someone would have made such a device so I started my search and found this great product. We have had it a few weeks and my dog goes in and out of the pool at will. It took use only 10 Min to train him.
