This simple white, hi-tech plastic ramp attaches to the deck of the pool, walled pond, or even most docks and some boats (Note: boat installation will vary and in some cases requires ingenuity! This is because boat design is not as universally consistent as pool design).

Because all living beings see white, animals can see it—day or night—and they "skamper" out of the water on the ramp by themselves! This gives pet owners and animal lovers alike unprecedented peace of mind in terms of water safety...

Tips for Training Your Dog to use Skamper-Ramp!
You wouldn’t let you children swim without teaching them how to get into and out of the pool safely so why wouldn’t you do the same for your dog? Most can swim, but not all do it well, some love the water and others don’t. Regardless, the principal behind Skamper-Ramp is to keep them safe and help them to get out of the water when they want to on their own.
We know that dogs are the one animal that needs to be trained to use a Skamper-Ramp. Why? They expect you to rescue/help them! Dogs have become so domesticated over the years that they have lost many of the instincts that enable other animals/pets—cats, rabbits, frogs, etc—use a Skamper-Ramp without hesitation. These other animals see the ramp leading out of the water, “swim” over to it and climb out.
Dogs are different. So here are a few tips:
  • It helps to have two people, if possible. One in the water with the dog and one outside behind the ramp. If you are alone, start out in the water and then after a few tries (as follows) get out and position yourself behind the ramp.
  • From the water, stand behind the dog, and guide him to swim toward the ramp, so that he heads toward it straight-on, not from the side/an angle.
  • Help him climb up the first few times—he will probably struggle, flail a bit and even slip around. Remember, he is on plastic and not used to walking on something that is not firm ground! The person outside the water should issue encouragement, call the dog, hold out his favorite treat, praise it, etc.
Please understand, the learning process is not always pretty! Training animals is a skill, and there are people who do this for a living if you do not wish to. What you do want is your dog to use this white ramp as its marker; for how to get out of the water safely.
That means you might want to install it next to the steps at your pool so that your pet swims to the ramp and exits on the steps as you do, or on the ramp – either way it gets out. Some dogs are better at getting out than others and some are faster learners. It is simply important for them to just be familiar with the ramp and that it is a means of getting out of the water!
  • Once the dog has gotten up the ramp with your assistance a few times, get out of the water and position yourself behind the ramp and have him come to you on his own. Holding out a treat as an encouragement often helps!.
  • As this is something of a trick, and a learned skill, it is good to repeat this training once or twice over swimming season, and also at other times during a year (depending on where you live).
Your dog now knows he can get out of the water using the Skamper-Ramp! Even if he is not a big “water dog” it is helpful for him to understand just in case!
