By: DaveI finally got my lab out to try this yesterday. Easy to install and well-made. The dog took to it well in shallow water, and even in swimming depth if the angle was set right and my hand on her collar to steady her on teh way up.
-the J-hooks are long and you will probably want to cut them off once you decide on transom vs. side mount. Cut, file and round them off a bit with emery cloth. I'm going to try to find some little plastic nipples to put over the end to further prevent injury.
-The j-hook mounts more securly on the side than on the transom of my jonboat.
-After considering several dog ladder at several prices and reading reviews, I thin kthat this is the best on that there is available.
Load-A-Pup HD Dog Ladder -- Boat Mount
Looking for a safe, effective way ever to get your hunting dog in and out of the boat when retrieving? The Load A Pup HD by Great Day attaches to the transom or side of any hunting boat and adjusts to the perfect level to allow your dog to exit and enter with ease. (It includes a special leveling mechanism for use when attaching it to the side of a boat.) The Load-A-Pup HD's platform can be positioned at water level to eliminate the "boat-rocking" problems common to other systems.
The Load-A-Pup is constructed of aircraft aluminum and weighs only 7 lbs. With use of super-strong aircraft suspension cables, it can handle any size dog -- up to 200 lbs! It folds completely flat and compact for easy storage when not in use. The 14" x 20" platform is the perfect size for the job and is designed with gripping ridges to provide sure-footing and protection from injury to your dog's feet. The Load-A-Pup HD comes with a super-tough powder-coating in earth-tone gray for perfect concealment. Hook up a Load-A-Pup HD and make your next duck hunt pleasant for you and your water dog! Made in USA.
Also available is the Standard Model Load-A-Pup which attaches to your boat's boarding ladder.
