If you are passionate about your dog, boats and large bodies of water but worry about getting your dog in and out of the water then you have come to the right place.
You now have a way to keep your water dogs happy while you relax on the dock or in the boat for more than 30 seconds, without having to lift, hoist, pull, or yank your dog out of the water.
It does not matter if you have a 300' yacht or a 12' pontoon boat, a floating or fixed dock. Maybe you do not have a dock or boat for your dog. You may have a pool dog! Regardless if you have an above ground or in-ground pool, doggydocks®is the best solution to keep your dogs safe and happy in and out of the pool.
doggydocks® is the only product on the market that can easily be adapted to your specific need. Dogs are not anatomically designed to use ladders even though many lake and pool dogs can learn to use boat ladders and water steps but these systems often cause serious injuries. Dogs do not have peripheral vision and pool steps are not visible for our pets.
Just as dogs are not designed to lift themselves, we dog owners are not designed to bend 90 degrees while lifting a wet dog. Furthermore, we know dogs should never be pulled out of the water by their legs or neck.
Dogs for the most part don’t drown because they cannot swim. Drowning most often occurs when a dog cannot find a way out of the water and they become too exhausted to paddle to stay afloat. This is why we recommend doggy life vests even if your dog is a strong swimmer.
It has been said, “Every Solution Creates a New Problem." Even though doggydocks® provides solutions to getting your dog out of the water, we have to be honest. It does create a new problem. Your dog will be the most popular dog on the lake and other dogs will be using the doggydocks® and as soon as you have called it a day and dried your pooch….they will be back in the water, because doggydocks® are irresistible to water dogs!
doggydocks® Floating Water Ramp for Dogs is the "Original Floating Dog Ramp" which allows dogs to get out of the water onto a boat platform, boat dock, or swimming pool deck without assistance. No other system is safe, easier, or as much fun as doggydocks®.
Imagine relaxing on your boat or dock and not worrying if the fur kids are safe in the water.

How to use doggydocks®
doggydocks® attaches to your boat platform, dock, or swimming pool using one of several options. Please Note: We do not recommend using a standard dock cleat as a mounting option as a long term solution. It was originally intended as a means to attach the doggydocks® in emergency situations.
Not only are doggydocks® safer than dog dock ladders, pup-steps, and dog docks, Dogs are not ergonomically built to climb and serious injuries to hips and joints are common when dogs use dock ladders or steps in water. Moreover, dogs don’t get excited when they see a ladder or stairs on the dock or back of a boat. Water dogs make doggydocks® their own interactive water toy!
