At Dog Stairs and Ramps, we know that one of the best parts of being owned by a small dog is the ability to travel just about anywhere with them! But just how to travel? That is the question.
A dog is a dog no matter how small! We all know a large dog who still thinks she’s a puppy and wants to sit in our lap. Likewise, small dogs often have a bigger than life personality and are ready, willing and able to take on the world.
Below, we at Dog Stairs and Ramps submit for your review 5 awesome items that are safe, functional and super cute. This short list will have you rethinking your little mighty mutt’s place in the home, and help to empower them so they may seize the day and take on that next outdoor adventure.

Planning a road trip or just a day hike? Dog car seats are not only a must for safety, but they also provide a “boost” giving your small passengers the ability to see out the window and enjoy the view!

Kong Cooling Coat for Small Dogs
Since we are on the subject of being outdoors, we would be remiss if we were not mindful of the warmer temperatures, especially in the summertime.
Small dogs can easily overheat on long walks, hikes, or just being outside for long periods of time.
The Kong Cooling Coat has an underlay of foam that absorbs cool water to help keep your dog’s body temperature down, while also blocks 99% of harmful UV rays. This means your dog can go harder and play longer.
This cooling coat is a great idea anytime you’re out in the sun for an extended period and want your dog to be as safe and comfortable as possible.
At Dog Stairs and Ramps, we say that there is no reason to leave your dog behind this summer! With great outdoor gear now available for dogs of all sizes, you and your best furry friend can go on a multitude of adventures together in confidence, comfort, and style.
