Dog Ladders for Fishing Boats by WaterDog Adventure Gear

WAG Boarding Steps™ are dog ladders for fishing boats by WaterDog Adventure Gear that have been designed and manufactured with the angler in mind. Don’t leave your best friend behind when going out for the day simply because you fear having to drag your wet dog back into the boat after a swim. Our dog ladders for fishing boats provide an easy option for your dog to board your boat alone. WAG Boarding Steps have a capacity of 130 pounds and are designed for dog use only.

Unlike other products that are heavy and cumbersome, our dog ladders for fishing boats are constructed of engineered plastics, clear anodized aluminum extrusions and stainless steel hardware. The 4″ deep, flat steps with integral toe plate and 4″ step height is suitable for dogs of all sizes and have a slip-resistant top surface. The “space-frame” design results in high open areas in all three directions to minimize the force and effects of surrounding water currents.

We offer two models of dog ladders for fishing boats:

 

 

  • The patented LM-6 is designed to mount over the gunwale or transom lip of most fishing boats. The design incorporates reversible, modifiable hooks to mount over the top edge of the gunwale or transom and has independently adjustable struts to accommodate different hull designs and shapes (angle/curvature). Perhaps most importantly, if you drop them in the water or they fall out of the boat, they float due to strategic placement of closed-cell polyethylene foam.   U.S. Patent No. 9,815,529  LM-6 and LM-6H Owner’s Manual
  • The patented HSM-6 provides similar functionality as the LM-6, but mounts at the top using a slotted crossbar (versus hooks) that can be restrained behind a boat cleat or secured to a flat, horizontal surface along your gunwale. The HSM-6 design incorporates independently adjustable struts that rest against the hull and floatation material like the LM-6.  U.S. Patent No. 9,815,529  HSM-6 Owner’s Manual

No more need to be there to lift your wet dog into the boat, or readjusting your pet’s ladder each and every time they enter the boat.
