People go to great lengths to care for their pet and our Dog Assist Stair Treads can be one of those solutions for your furry family member. We get may custom requests for our Dog Assist Stair Treads and Custom Stair
treads alike. Here is one of our projects that we would like to share. This project helped make this little pup climb the stairs with ease.
For Chris’s dog, the staircase might as well be Mt. Everest. With the smooth surface of the steps, it also makes it difficult for any dog or pet to gain any type of traction.
The homeowners also needed something that blended in with the contemporary style of the home and steps. (Typical sizes measure 8” x 24” and 9” x 27” to fit most steps) The homeowners wanted something that would still allow for the beauty of the stairs to be seen and assistance for their pet to climb the stairs with confidence. This is where our custom options come into play. We are able to cut to different shapes and sizes needed for many projects – this one proving no exception. We worked together with Chris to come up with a design solution to suit his space.
Depending on the project lead time from start to finish usually takes 2-3 weeks – from sample selection to your order arrival. Each Dog Assist Stair Tread is cut to fit and bound to complete the look in a coordinating fabric tape. It is sewn into the edge of the carpet tread. This helps prevent wear and gives the stair treads a finished look. For Chris’s project it took about 3 weeks from samples to customization and delivery.
Over A period of a few weeks and sample approval, Chris was able to make a final selection on what worked best in the space. His dog can now climb the stairs with confidence. Not to mention these Dog Assist Stair Treads complement the interior style too!
“The steps worked out perfectly and look great! Thanks for the excellent service!”

When measuring for your custom stair treads like this one we always recommend to stay ½” away from the front of the step. This ensures proper wear of the stair treads. For more unique steps and cut outs. Templates are needed to make your custom creation. They can be made from paper and sent by mail to our location.
Most patterns will work for customization. We like to stay within a 8” -9” pattern repeat so that you can get the most out of the pattern. Otherwise… the pattern can appear to be chopped up and not look visually pleasing.

“Our 15 year old dog had become hesitant going down the stairs. While he was unsure about the treads at first, he now goes up and down freely. One review complained about the quality of the double-sided tape that comes with the treads, but we have had no problems with the tape and we have been using it for several weeks now.”
“These turned out perfect!! They look great and the custom shapes and sizes turned out so good. We are very pleased!! Definitely recommend. Thank you!”
