TWISTEP® is an instant, multi-use step that helps your dog or you get in and out of your Pickup Truck easily. the Twistep attaches to the hitch receiver of your vehicle and stores under the bumper when not in use. TWISTEP® provides you or your dog with lower-impact, lower-stress access into and out of a vehicle.
Repeated jumping into and out of a vehicle can aggravate or even cause serious conditions like arthritis, leg injuries, back sprains and other spinal damage that has been known to lead to surgery. And lifting a large dog into a vehicle isn't easy either! TWISTEP® can help dogs of all ages get into a vehicle. Young dogs can avoid unnecessary stress on growing hips and elbows. Active dogs can appreciate a step up at the end of a long day of hiking, hunting and other outdoor activities. And TWISTEP® can help older dogs, who may suffer from arthritis and who can no longer enter a vehicle on their own. TWISTEP® easily swivels out from under the vehicle in a few seconds just when you need it. And it tucks out of the way under the bumper when you don't. TWISTEP® fits trucks with a 2" receiver hitch.
Fits 2 inch receiver hitches

I have used TWISTEP® and found it very practical, convenient & easy to use. It is ideal for dogs recovery from surgery and dogs with arthritis or spinal problems. The TWISTEP® allows dogs easy & safe access in and out of vehicles and minimizes assistance by the owners. It is also recommended for use by normal dogs to help prevent injuries from jumping out of vehicles. I highly recommend it for dog owners.

In my 15 years as a companion animal veterinarian I've seen numerous large and mid-sized dogs for back sprains, arthritis and worst of all spinal damage from "slipped discs". All of these problems can be aggravated and occasionally even caused by simple everyday activities like jumping in and out of the backs of SUV's or trucks. It is for this reason I'm excited about the development of TWISTEP®, a large platform step attached to the hitch receiver of SUV's and trucks that allows owners to step their dogs into the back of their vehicle in a a controlled manner.
By slowing dogs down and doing incremental steps into a vehicle, dogs won't be wrenching their backs, hips, elbows and knees by wildly jumping in and out of vehicles. TWISTEP® stores under the vehicle when not in use and is extremely easy to set up for use. TWISTEP® is intended to keep healthy active large dogs from injuring themselves but it also has the added benefit of decreasing the chance owners will hurt their own backs by lifting dogs in and out of their cars.
In my opinion if all my clients with big dogs used this product I'd see less animals for flare-ups of their arthritis and certainly less dogs with acute slipped discs. This is a product I would use for my own yellow lab.
