Walkin' Wheels - the ONLY Fully Adjustable Dog Wheelchair
Our veterinarian-approved Walkin' Wheels design is unique. It's the only dog wheelchair of its kind. Made of extruded aluminum, this versatile easy-to-use dog wheelchair is convenient, ships same day, comes fully assembled, and adjusts with the snap of a button for a perfect fit -- every time.
A dog wheelchair can enable your dog to run and play again, get the exercise he (or she) needs, and live a happy, healthy life. Walkin' Wheels is designed to help animals with hip and leg problems including degenerative myelopathy (DM), hip dysplasia, arthritis, paralysis, slipped disc, soreness, spinal and neurological problems, surgical recovery, and more.
Why We Invented the Adjustable Dog Wheelchair
Dog wheelchairs have been around for 20 years. At first they were built for specific dogs by their owners or friends. Eventually they became more widespread and could be ordered by taking dozens of measurements and sending them to the builder who would create a set of wheels for the dog in a few weeks to over a month.
This is the way many industries begin, but the 'custom made' aspects of new products don't last long. Soon the dog wheelchair industry became large enough to support some invention and innovation and the adjustable dog wheelchair was introduced.
The main advantage of a custom made wheelchair is that, if made correctly, it will fit your dog precisely. This is good, but, as dog owners soon found out, there were a number of serious problems, some of which could impact the health of the dog. A dozen or more measurements were required in order to build a dog wheelchair that fit. If the measurements were not correct, the wheelchair would be useless, or would require a return to the manufacturer. If the dog's health changed for the better or the worse, the cart could not be adjusted to accommodate this. This was a terrible problem for growing dogs.
Often the carts were quite cumbersome. In order to get them in a suitcase or the trunk of a car they would need complex disassembly. They took as long as two weeks to build when often they were needed immediately. Because there was so much labor involved, the cart could not easily be returned if the dog was unable to use it for any reason. When the dog no longer needed it, it could not be adapted for another dog. Walkin' Wheels, the leader in dog wheelchairs, solves ALL of these problems in a sporty, convenient, great value piece of equipment.
Fits perfectly now, and also as your dog's health changes.
We want our Walkin' Wheels to be super comfortable for every dog, which is why we've created a wide range of wheelchairs. Depending on your dog's specific measurements, wheelchair prices range from $249 (for small dogs like pugs and Chihuahuas) to $459 (for larger dogs like German shepherds, great danes,and mastiffs). Use The Dog Cart Wizard to calculate the price based on your dog's specific measurement. Click here to see our measurement/price table.
Quality Versus Price Dilemma
In 2005 when we started working with engineers to create Walkin' Wheels we had a choice-- we could either engineer the lowest priced product and hope customer's didn't care too much about quality or create the world's best pet wheelchair. We chose the latter and the thousands of letters we've received and posts on our message board at HandicappedPets.net in the last 10 years are proof customers wanted us to focus on quality.

Pepper walking her dad
We want to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your company and their products! Our sweet baby Pepper is 14 years old, had hip dysplasia, and neurological symptoms preventing her from being able to walk. She always loved her long walks with her daddy. However, very suddenly she was unable to stand on her own. Our vet said her heart is strong and her blood work is good -- meaning there is still quality of life for her. Thanks to her doggy wheelchair she is able to walk with her daddy again and is one happy girl!
We thank you again and wish you much success!
Our 10 year old German shepherd has a spinal issue impacting his back legs. We've been using shoes to give him traction, but he's now having more difficulty keeping his back end up and has been unable to go on walks further than a block. He is also extremely nervous when surrounded or feels closed in.
Yesterday, I put our Walkin' Wheels together and brought it outside. I brought the harness to Kodi and slipped it over his head and snapped it together. We then limped outside, and I set the cart over him, and lifted his legs in. Kodi surprisingly let me do all of this, and when I started walking down the driveway, he immediately followed. We walked our small subdivision twice and even when he got snagged on a rock that he just had to water, he was able to back up and get around it (he is very smart).

Jaxie has been using his Walkin' Wheels dog wheelchair since July 2012. He has degenerative myelopathy (“DM”) and has lost complete use of his back legs. Jaxie is learning how to use his Walkin’ Wheels now with the front leg attachment as he needs a little more help. Thank you for such a great product! I hope Walmart puts your product on their shelf so more pet owners can learn about this option for handicapped pets. In the meantime, you can buy directly from us.
I wanted to take the opportunity to "thank you" as Madison's Walkin' Wheels have truly made such a huge impact in our lives. Madison was diagnosed with Degenerative Myelopathy in September 2012 at age 8, and it has been a very difficult year seeing her physically decline as she is soooooo full of life and love.
I decided on doing aqua therapy with her in our pool as I wasn't sure about how she would adapt to the wheels. Then after talking to our vet, who is also a friend, she convinced me it would be something I wouldn't regret. We purchased Madison's new pink wheels as an early birthday gift and let me tell you..... I cried when I saw her run again after her frisbee and for her to be able to move around without my constant assistance was such an amazing feeling.
