Load-A-Pup HD Dog Ladder -- Boat Mount



By: Matt From MN

Hunts.


My biggest issue with the ladder is the J-hooks. On my boat they stick out at least 6 inches directly towards the space in which your dog is expected to come up the ladder. Without modifying the hooks, my dog ripped open his brand new neoprene vest within the first five uses getting into my boat. I am aware that I could modify the hooks, but after paying $120 for a simple folding platform, I believe it should arrive in a finished state. If nothing else they should include rubber stoppers to put over the j-hook screws. I also did not find the size of the platform to be adequate for my dog. He is a wide set lab, and he was able to make it work, but I see no reason why the ladder can't be at least 6 inches wider to improve the footing for a larger dog. I plan on returning the platform. A good neoprene vest with handles is a safer way for me to get my hunting dog in the boat. I had high hopes for this ladder because of all the good reviews, but in my humble opinion the manufacturer needs to make some minor modifications to make it truly usable in my waterfowl hunting application. As always, however, Gun Dog Supply has been very easy to work with, and I am sure when I begin the return process they will make it as simple as possible.
