    dog access for AGP

    Does anyone have a picture or design for a ramp that a dog could access an AGP from a deck?
    I have a 30' x 54" round AGP and will building a deck around this summer. My wife just bought a brittany spaniel a few months ago and she loves to swim. I would like for her to have some sort of ramp that she could come in and out the pool without us having to lift her.

    OMG...I feel like such a doof
    That would be perfect and thats the kind of steps the wife wants me to put in when the deck is done.
    Thanks so much for pointing out the obvious.

    We have 2 english mastiffs that we have taught how to climb the ladder to get in and out. I thought that we would have a problem with them getting out. Our deck got built over the top rail so its 10" over it (so we can change liner and such) and I wanted to use the steps we had outside of our pool last year but we couldn't because of the height of the deck. I found other steps that have 5 steps instead of the 4 but since the dogs have learned the ladder I'll save myself the $430 that it costs for them.

    thanks for the skamper ramp link...that looks like what I had in mind. Might not be a bad thing to have if the wedding cake steps don;t work out.
