Deck Access Ramp for Dogs

Our Customer had two dogs that were getting older with hip issues and having trouble going up and down the deck steps to the back yard.  We were asked to install a dog access ramp from the back deck to the yard.  We installed the ramp over the deck steps semi-permanently so the ramp could be removed later and the deck steps returned to their original condition.  The goal was to make the dog ramp appear to be part of the deck design and not a cobbled on addition.  The ramp is made from the same deck material and design as the original deck so it would fit into the design.  After the pressure treated wood is cured, it can be stained to match the existing deck stain.
