I had a pooch that could climb a wooden runged ladder, while holding a claw hammer in his mouth. Regretfully, his numerous tricks predated digital cameras and cell phone cameras. Skeeter was both a working dog and a hunting dog. The second time he ever retrieved a game bird he picked up three quail, one at a time, until he had all three in his mouth, and brought them to me. He sat down in front of me with a mouth full of feathers, grinning ear to ear. I was new to hunting birds with a dog, and had no idea that some could perform multiple retrieves. I was so dumbfounded, I couldn't even say, "Good boy!" I was lucky; he was the smartest dog I've ever seen.
My dad had an exceptional dog that would climb trees after squirrels. He'd back off a distance from the trunk, run hard at the tree, turn 90º and continue running up the trunk until he could get a leg over a limb and then start pulling himself up. He'd go as far as he could after the squirrel and when it proved unsuccessful (yet again) he'd just bail out from the tree top. A few shakes after he splatted and he was good to go.
If you can't make it precise make it adjustable.
The ladder that "dog" climbed most frequently was the ladder up the side of the boat I was building to provide access to the deck. He wasn't going to 'save' anybody, dogs are pack animals, and my partner and I were dominant members of his pack, it was likely a community thing.
