NEWS FROM THE ELEVATOR’S WORLD: THE SPECIAL STAIRLIFT FOR …ELDERLY DOGS

Some breeds of dogs may not have trouble climbing the stairs in the near future as a prototype dog stairlift has been developed. Dogs have always been man’s best friend and faithful companion, forming a strong bond with their owners and becoming a full member of the family. Above all, dogs love being active but at some point, many dogs start to struggle with this kind of activity and it can be painful or uncomfortable for them to move. Stairs often become something that elderly, arthritic and overweight dogs can’t use anymore. There is hope for dogs on the horizon though, as
a prototype dog stair lift is created so that dogs can once again climb the stairs with ease. The lift is fitted with a paw-activated button, which is close enough to the lift for dogs to press and then comfortably climb into the basket at floor level, before starting their ascent.
