Super Skamper-Ramp in detail

It's a sad statistic that one out of every 1000 pets will drown every year in the United States alone*. Thats a lot of lost pets and too many distressed pet owners. And this figure doesn't account for the tens of thousands of "critters" that suffer the same fate.

Animals will instinctively head for the closest edge of the pool and start clawing their way around the edge, looking for the exit they remember is there, somewhere. For owners of vinyl-lined pools this is an extremely expensive problem, as the entire liner may have to be replaced or at least repaired if it is ripped or torn.

Your pet will thank you for a Skamper-Ramp

Regardless of whether an animal has jumped or been chased in the water, how they get out can be a major issue. Many pet owners believe they can train their dog(s) to use the steps. But even this technique isn't fool-proof, primarily because the dog can't see the steps-they are under the water! In reality, the pet has a landmark-such as a plant, fence or tree-but at night or if in distress- that "learning" is quickly replaced by panic. Then there are all those frogs, squirrels, snakes and hedgehogs that manage to turn up in skimmer baskets after having fallen or been chased into the pool.

Skamper-Ramp is suitable for larger pets

A large number of pets, particularly dogs, enjoy swimming but even the youngest, strongest swimmers can panic if they can't find their way out, get fatigued or distressed. They will instinctively head for the closest edge of the pool and start clawing their way around the edge, looking for the exit they remember is there, somewhere. For owners of vinyl-lined pools this is an extremely expensive problem, as the entire liner may have to be replaced or at least repaired if it is ripped or torn.

Skamper-Ramp, not just for dogs!

So when it comes to keeping a pet safe, money isn't the issue. Effectiveness is. Peace-of-mind is worth more than expense. To many people, the death of a pet can be just as difficult to cope with as a human family member. With the accompanying sense of acute loss and depression just as real as if it had been a "human" family member.

Many countries now require that pools be fenced in. But they aren't fool-proof. The door can be left open or ajar. Animals will dig under or slither through them. Pool covers, especially soft ones, can be as dangerous as an open pool. Animals get caught and can slide underneath and then are unable to get out, resulting in either suffocation or drowning. Solar Sun Rings are a better option as the entrapment risk is minmal.
