Additional Information
With the Load-A-Pup, you and your dog can enjoy all the fun associated with recreational boating. Simply hook the Load-A-Pup to your boat’s boarding ladder and you are ready for action. Your dog can leave and re-enter the boat at will. The great thing is, he does it without any help! No more bending, tugging or straining on a wet ball of fur.

The Load-A-Pup platform is constructed of light-weight, aircraft aluminum and includes gripping ridges to insure solid, safe footing as your dog climbs back into the boat after a swim. The Load-A-Pup’s handsome, off-white, powder-coat finish not only complements the factory finish or color of any boat, but will help to insure years of dependable service.

The Load-a-Pup fits any boat that has a boarding ladder. It weighs only 7 lbs. and has a generous 13.5" X 20" platform. The maximum weight capacity is 200 lbs. It comes complete with security straps, installs in seconds and folds flat for compact storage when not in use.

For use by pets only---Not for people (adults or children)

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Ladder works great - needs better instructions I bought this for our 80 lb golden retriever to be able to get onto our pontoon boat without our help. It wasn't working at first because she still needed assistance, and I was ready to return it. However, I decided to try getting her to use it in shallow water where I could stand. After several iterations of changing mounting heights, I found that I didn't have it low enough initially. Now she climbs into the boat by herself easily. I would give this five stars, but the instructions should be clearer about how far the ladder needs to be in the water for different size dogs.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good concept. Poor packaging. If you don't mind paint chips, this may be for you. The "hanger" (which must be assembled) is only wrapped in paper within the box- allowing it to rub against product within the box. This results in a lot of chipped paint. The straps also leave a lot to be desired. Definitely NOT user-friendly. I will fabricate a solution, but I shouldn't have to. I expected better for this price. Seems like a good concept, but poorly executed.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best product available I've bought 3 of these over the years and swear they are the best for getting your dog out of the water and on your boat or dock. I currently have one for my boat and one for my floating dock. They are adjustable and will fit almost anywhere. They are lightweight, sturdy and can even hold my weight of 190 Lbs.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from great little gadget Works great. 75 # lab had it mastered in 3 or 4 practice sessions and can now load in the middle of Lake Gaston with no worries.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Does not work for cobalt T ladder Designed for traditional ladder with post on both left and right side of steps. Won't work with Cobalt ladder with support post in middle of rungs (T configuration) Construction looks good, wish it worked for my boat.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Our 98 .b Lab loved it! Works Great! We bought this for our 98 lb. lab to be able to get onto our pontoon boat. It only took him two tries to master the platform and hop up on the boat. It sits low enough in the water for him to climb on and sit, then he either used the other stair or jumped onto the boat from there. This was a lifesaver for us as with previous dogs, we had to tug and pull to get them aboard. With this, he was able to come and go whenever he felt like jumping in the water. For us, it was worth every penny. Based on some of the other reviews, we did buy some no-slip grip spray and applied it to the platform.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from a lot of adjusting required This ladder works OK. Water loving dogs should train fairly quickly * but only if your ladder is a good fit for this product. Sometimes a dog falls off the side of this if the water is choppy or if they come up to it on an angle. It is also not quite the right fit for some boat ladders. Even when re-adjusted for best fit, it's too high for the top rung (sticks out of the water- and is completely unusable for the dog) and a bit too low for the middle (a big jump required- a tired or older dog wouldn't be able to use it). My other big complaint is that the strap system is cumbersome. It's very difficult to secure it into place leaning over the back of the boat even in calm water. Furthermore, there is no safety cord to keep it from sinking until you thread the straps, which you have to do every time you attach it. *Quick release buckle straps would be significantly better.* Also, Adults who need to use the ladder have to attempt to move the dog platform out of the way while still swimming. It would be better for boats with two ladders, and different rung heights than our ski boat.

    Can the Load- A- Pup be installed to wood or vinyl? (Like a seawall or a dock?)

    Asked by: Lori
    Unfortunately the Load-A-Pup is designed to be used on a pre-existing boat boarding ladder.

    I own a pontoon and am curious, the two reviews pertaining to pontoons were night and day. I have a 4 step curved ladder, would installation be easier on a curved or straight ladder? Why do pontoon owners need to fasten it to the lower rung as one review

    Asked by: TuLoe
    The Load-a-pup will not fit on every pontoon ladder nor can it fit on every ladder rung. The manufacturer could not tell me why it will work on some ladders and not others.

    I have a pontoon and the two reviews for pontoons are night and day. Will this work on a curved four step ladder, can it go on any ladder rung?
