My dog loves it!

This is a heavy duty device that works great. I think any dog would catch on very quickly how to use it, mine did and loves it.

This item can only be used on a ladder that does not fold. We purchased this item in hopes that our large dog would be able to pull himself out of the water. Our pontoon ladder folds in the middle, which does not allow the device to hook on in the manner it was designed. It is designed to hook on to a ladder step, hanging down flush against the ladder with the platform sticking out into the water. Our ladder has a joint, causing a inch or so difference from the step it is attached to and the lower part where the platform hangs. It sticks out of the water at an angle, posing a safety issue for the dog and making it impossible for our dog to get on at water level. We attempted to use the device, our dog with assistance got his front paws on, but the ladder fell off and the dog with it. (We were the joke of the swimming hole and it scared the dog.) This device DOES NOT fit all ladders. The idea is awesome, it seems to be made well, but we now have to purchase a different ladder if we want to use it.

Worked great on a pontoon boat!

      Comments about Great Day Load-A-Pup:

      This ladder platform worked exactly as advertised and as designed! It attached perfectly to the ladder of a pontoon boat and allowed our dog to enter and exit the water effortlessly. The Load-a-Pup attaches in seconds and gives the dog a good, secure landing zone for coming up out of the water. The only thing I would improve about this is adding non-slip grip. My dog sometimes struggled to get a grip so that she could pull the rest of her weight up - I have ordered a non-skid traction grip spray designed for paddleboards that I hope will give this platform the "tack" it needs while not making it too coarse or rough for my pup's pads. I highly recommend this product.

        We have a 65 Lb Chocolate Lab who loves to jump off the boat and swim with us. This ladder enables her to get back on the boat all by her self. I bought the other version and it did not work at all. This one is rock solid and I would highly recomend, just don't drop it or it will sink fast!

              Comments about Great Day Load-A-Pup:

              Overton's shipped the product ahead of schedule. Thank you.
              I have a 15 month old black lab who weighs about 60lbs.
              I have a 195 stingray FX with a telescoping ladder. I keep my boat on a lake in NY state. I attached the load a pup to the ladder and my dog had no problem using it. The only thing is you need to show your dog to step on the platform from the front and not the side.

              My dog liked the load a pup so much that she wants to use it to get into the water. This will take a little getting used to but we will work on it with her.

              The product works extremely well. It would be nice if they incorporated some quick and easy adjustment hardware.
