I have a little pup who loves sleeping with us! We use to keep an ottoman at the bottom of our bed but due to the tight space, it just wasn't functional for every day. So I went out on a limb and purchased the pet steps! It has saved space in our limited room as well as made life easier for our pup. She wasn't sure about them at first but once I placed her on them, she quickly figured them out. Would definitely recommend!
