Old dogs and steps

I'm going to put in a dog door for my two older dogs. There is a huge drop from my house to the yard. What is better for dogs- a ramp or steps? I'm going to have a contractor build something out for them. Just not sure what to do. One dog weighs 50 lbs and the other is 96 lbs so they are kind of big.

Don't forget to add some type of non skid to it. If wood, put sand in sealer. If concrete, they can rough it rather than smooth finish.
