Pools are perilous to pets and other creatures! Many pet owners try to protect their pet by training it to swim to the pool steps to get out of the water. This is an effective measure if it happens to be daylight, or a non-threatening environment, but at night or if panicked, a dog will panic. Animals cannot see the steps for the very simple reason that they are under the water! That's why when a pet or animal drowns, it is a preventable accident! The Pet Skamper Ramp -Big Dog features a twice patented design, is durable, robust and lightweight and protects pets and other creatures from drowning by allowing them to get out of the water on thier own.
The Pet Skamper-Ramp is white (all animals can see white) and it angles down into the water, allowing the animal to see it leading out of the water, day or night. The Pet Skamper-Ramp provides peace-of-mind because your animals can 'scamper' out of the pool, walled pond, the back of a dock or boat or any other large body of water, all by itself.
To see the Pet Skamper-Ramp in action view the VIDEO for an informative guide.
Dogs are the only animal that has to be trained to use the Pet Skamper-Ramp. Cats, ferrets, rabbits, possums, frogs, snakes, even spiders all go to it instinctively. Check out the easy -to-follow TRAINING GUIDE for your dog.
Why does it work?
The Pet Skamper-Ramp is a water exit ramp, a water escape ramp - a means of preventing animals and pets from drowning. It is easy to assemble, lightweight, strong and inexpensive, it is white so all living things can see it.
Because it is made of heavy-duty plastic, it is a deceptively simple-looking product. But behind that design there is a significant amount of engineering, science and testing. The primary science is that ALL living beings - domestic or wild; bugs, animals, or humans; colorblind or not - see the color white. When trapped, day or night, they see it and go to it to keep their heads out of water and for escape. The Pet Skamper-Ramp provides peace-of-mind to pet owners and animal lovers since it provides protections against drowning, day or night, 24/7.
Skamper-Ramp must be installed so that a few inches of the "nose" (curved) end are under water and the ramp breaks the water's surface, enabling the animal to see it at eye level in the water. The "open-box-top" end (closest to the anchoring surface) must be very snug against a vertical wall in order to provide the rigidity necessary for an animal to "skamper" out on the ramp.
Where can it be used?
The Pet Skamper-Ramp can be used in the pool (commercial or private), floating or fixed dock, walled pond, spa, bulkhead, reservoir, canal, stern of a boat, or stock tanks and water troughs in pastures.
What do I need to install it?
The ramps come complete with all the necessary assembly hardware for proper installation, with the exception that they do not have the screws/bolts for wood or masonry decking. If you have existing anchors in your pool deck (for covers, fencing and the like) you can fasten your ropes to the existing anchors.
NOTE: Hardware for attaching the D-ring-clips to the pool deck HAS NOT been supplied due to the wide variety of deck types and materials as well as uses of Skamper-Ramps. Please consult with your local hardware store or pool service company to make the appropriate selection.
For a pool deck, not utilizing existing fencing or cover anchors, we suggest a 1/4" pan-head stainless steel screw that is 1 1/2" long and a plastic or lead concrete anchor for sinking into your pool deck; for a wooden deck, or dock not utilising existing cleats, we suggest a 1/4" pan-head stainless steel screw that is 1.5" long (or 2" carriage bolt).
