8 DIY Pet Stairs, Ramps, & Steps Plans

If you are woodworking inclined, these steps are a great permanent option. In fact, the design is so simple to make, even woodworking novices can build these steps without much trouble at all

If you have any wood or plastic crates lying around, they can easily be repurposed into functional pet steps. Simply stacking a few together and adding cushioning makes a great set of steps and provides valuable storage space.

Most pet stairs and ramps have the added problem of storage: They are typically bulky, oddly shaped, and difficult to stow away. This collapsible dog ramp solves that issue by collapsing to a flat item.

This simple dog ramp can be built quickly and easily with items that are most likely already laying around the home. Two simple pieces of flat wood, a chain or string to act as a hinge.

Another step-and-kennel combination design, these pet steps are easy to build. The kennel is located directly underneath the steps to provide more space and make the steps far easier to build.

Need extra storage space along with a ramp for your pet? This project is a great idea, as it combines various sizes of storage and shelving with a carpeted ramp for your pet.
