Which is the Best Doggy Boat Ladder? Paws Aboard or Pawz Pet Products?

The Paws Aboard Doggy Boat Ladder has been the gold standard for dog water safety when boating on lakes and other large bodies of water.  Now a newcomer has arrived, Pawz Pet Products Doggy Boat Ladder. We wanted to know, what's the difference and which is better?

We checked with several distributors and the manufacturers of both products.  It appears that the owners of Paws Aboard decided to go their separate ways.  As a result, both owners enjoyed the intellectual property rights to the Paws Aboard boat ladder patent. This spawned a new company, Pawz Pet Products, producing exactly the same product, possibly even being produced at the same factory.  The only difference right now is the lettering on the side of the ladder.

As you can see they attach in exactly the same manner and look almost alike, right down the dog modeling its ease of use and his tug toy.  We understand that future runs of the Pawz Pet Products boat ladder will be in in white, and not the bright safety yellow of the current production.

So, Which Boat Ladder Should You Choose?


Right now, whichever ladder is cheaper is our recommendation. While Pawz Pet Products is trying to make a name for itself, there are some good deals to be had on their boat and dock stairs. We found it on sale at Wags and Whiskers Gifts with free shipping for $179.00.

During this divorce of ownership, Paws Aboard had experienced some delays in production, causing a number of distributors to jump ship, and signup with their new competitor, Pawz Pet Products.  It will be interesting to see who wins this battle in a relatively small market. Pawz Pet Products also has their own line of dog life jackets, similar in construction the the Paws Aboard line, but with different patterns. Their is even a Pawz all-American flag life jacket for patriotic dog owners.'


UPDATE: Paws Aboard is currently redesigning their version of the boat ladder, so it is unavailable for purchase.  Look for them to have a new ladder out in the spring of 2018.

Either ladder can be attached to a dock to create a permanent set of stairs for your dog to easily climb out of the water.

80 Unique Names for Clever Dalmatian Puppies

Prunella Fitzgerald de Puech Barrayre The beautiful Dalmatian is the only truly spotted dog breed, with it spots forming in black on white or liver on white patterns.  This ancient breed is depicted in Egyptian Pharaohs tombs as well as in Dominican monasteries, as far back as 1360. A versatile breed, they function well as sporting dogs, border sentinels, draft dogs, circus performers and coach dogs, but perhaps they are best known as the firehouse dog.
