The first rule to living around the water is to teach your children to be safe. Pet owners feel the same way. All pet owners harbor a fear of their favorite four-legged friends drowning, and teaching a pet how to get out of the water is no easy task. An animal must leverage its body weight to get out of deep water and always needs their person to hold their neck as a fulcrum. But what happens if no one is there to help him out?

The bright yellow floating ramp provides animals to swim and climb out of water.

The PupPlank is a revolutionary device that enables your pet to get out of the water on her own. The bright yellow floating ramp provides animals with a mesh area to swim into, and an inflatable platform to climb on to get out of the water. The PupPlank features an H3 valve that allows full inflation or deflation in less than 4 minutes. Once you’re finished with the platform for the day, just dry it and compress it into a neat package for easy storage onboard. Pets don’t require any training to use the platform. The mesh net is weighted so it falls below the waterline, allowing your pet to swim right in and then climb onto the traction pad on the platform. The platform is reinforced, providing protection against damage by your pup’s nails.

PupPlank inflates in less than 4 minutes.
