DIY Tall Dog Stairs for about $40

A few years ago I searched for dog stairs. We had bought a thicker mattress and our dog couldn’t jump that high. I saw the “as seen on TV” models but they were too short. So were the taller stairs available at the pet store. The only option I found was custom wood stairs that ran between $100 and $300 plus shipping!

I finally decided to design my own. The stairs are 26 inches tall and are made from a $40, PVC 5-Shelf unit.
