As with aging people, older dogs suffering from joint pain or muscle problems may find it difficult to live in a home with stairs.In many cases, the dog may simply stay on the ground floor because it is too difficult for him to go upstairs.
One South Carolina family couldn’t leave their 15-year-old dog Jackson downstairs all the time due to hip dysplasia.So they made a significant investment: an elevator.
So, technically, this is a normal working elevator, which theoretically can only be used by one person.The elevator was installed during the renovation of the house to make it easier for older homeowners to access the upper floors.But for now, we will say that this is specifically a dog lift, and it is amazing.
Jackson can’t use the elevator alone, as someone has to open the door for him.But it allows him to go where his family members are without the pain of climbing stairs.
Of course, some have pointed out that the likely costs of installing an elevator in your home are prohibitive for most dog owners. No, we can’t all do this for our older puppies, but isn’t it nice to see that some choose to use their money to improve the life of their beloved dog?
