A Smaller Staircase Just for Dogs

Rebecca OConnell

Stairs have long been a nemesis and hated obstacle for tiny dogs. And while watching dogs grapple with the stairs can be cute—YouTube-video-compilation-level cute—it's also a little sad watching your pal struggle to meet you on the next floor. That's why the designers at 07BEACH decided to add some half-sized stairs to a house in Vietnam. The client has two small dogs, so the additional staircase was a fun extra tacked on to the house's design. The stairs are shorter, with a less steep incline for easy climbing.
