"Can my Pet Pee and Poop in the Wheelchair?"
Yes, that's the point of the dog wheelchair -- to help your dog get the exercise he needs and to do his business.
"Can my Pet Use his/her Rear Legs in the Wheelchair?"
Yes, we encourage your dog to use his/her rear legs to maintain muscle mass and to get exercise. If the rear legs are paralyzed, using the stirrups will keep the dog's legs from dragging.
"How Do I Measure My Dog?"
The one simple measurement we need - Fold of Flank
The wheelchair is so adjustable that we only need one measurement; the height of the dog (Called "Fold of Flank to ground). This will allow us to determine the correct size wheel. The measurement doesn't need to be exact. If you're off by a few inches it will adjust, or you can exchange the struts or wheels for the correct size.
"Can I get Walkin' Wheels in other countries?"
YES! You can order directly from us, or contact one of our international dealers. Please visit our international dealers page by clicking here

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 wheelchair could not be adjusted to accommodate this. This was a terrible problem for growing dogs.
Often the wheelchairs 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 wheelchair 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.
Quality Versus Price Dilemma
In 2005 when we started working with engineers to create Walkin' Wheels adjustable dog wheelchair for handicapped & disabled pets, 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 that customers wanted us to focus on quality.
Years of Research
Ever since Mark C. Robinson (inventor of Walkin' Wheels) had his 'aha' moment we've been on the quest of constant improvement. In the last 10 years our wheelchairs have brought happiness to tens of thousands of pets worldwide. Our loyal customers constantly give feedback for product features. This means every few years we're able to further enhance Walkin' Wheels. Our current model is the greatest version we've ever created, and it's also our best-selling model.
Meet the team behind Walkin' Wheels adjustable dog wheelchair.
Custom built wheelchairs can only be used for one dog, which means they have $0 resale value. Our patented fully-adjustable wheelchairs retain their value because they can be resold (useddogwheelchairs.com, ebay.com or amazon.com) or donated to fit any dog.
Hi HandicappedPets! I cannot begin to thank you enough for the wonderful Walkin' Wheels dog wheelchair! Just one week ago, I was in tears thinking it was the end for my dog Barney. After months of progressive immobility from arthritis and hip dysplasia, his hind legs were so weak he was unable to walk or even go to the bathroom himself. We ordered his Walkin’ Wheels that same day and got it 2 days later! Today is day 5, and he has been on 4 long walks! Due to his size, Barney cannot wear it in the house, but that's ok because he gets to go for walks again. Every time I pull it out, Barney’s ears perk up, his tail starts wagging, and a huge smile comes across his face! I wanted to share some pictures and videos with you in hopes that it could inspire more pet parents to consider this wheelchair for their dogs!...Read More
Our pet of the week Bella was able to spend additional time with her family thanks to Walkin’ Wheels. We are privileged to be able to honor the memory of German shepherd Bella.
Your request to have Bella's photo in one of your ads brought tears to my eyes. I'd be honored.
Bella was diagnosed with Degenerative Myelopathy and lost the use of her hind legs shortly thereafter. She was confused and depressed yet didn't appear to be in any physical pain. Knowing that the disease would progress to her front legs eventually, I purchased both the front and back assemblies...Read More
At HandicappedPets.com, we believe that a paralyzed dog deserves a second chance just as much as any other dog that finds itself in a homeless situation.

We consider it a privilege to be part of a community's effort to help a dog when he is down.

We were thrilled to receive this update from our friend Anand in India who wrote to tell us about his rescue dog Remy Martin. Anand recently celebrated the third anniversary of Remy’s rescue from the streets where many homeless dogs roam and are often paralyzed in car accidents.
Sadly, Remy was hit by a vehicle while roaming the streets of Chennai, India in January 2012. Thankfully, Anand came across Remy struggling and dragging himself and felt there had to be a solution. After taking Remy home, he purchased a dog cart from an Indian manufacturer, but it was too heavy and bulky, and Remy refused to use it, Then a friend, who also has a Walkin’ Wheels dog wheelchair for her dog, suggested that Anand try one for Remy...Read More
This week we wanted to share a memorial tribute to Lexus – a German shepherd that recently lost her battle with degenerative myelopathy in November 2014. We are extremely grateful to Cheryl Bonnette and her family for sharing this special journey that they took with Lexus. From the time Lexus was diagnosed with DM until the day she went proudly into the sunset, Cheryl learned the importance of living in the moment and ultimately realized that you simply know when “the time” is right.
We picked out our Lexus among a kennel of about 25 other puppies in August 2003. She ran over to us immediately, and I knew she was the one. She immediately became one of our own, in addition to our twin boys who were 16 at the time. She never required any "puppy school", being so easy to train myself, the usual sit, lie down, speak, stay, come and of course fetch, I at one time regretted ever teaching her and at the end missed it terribly. She was the BEST dog EVER...Read More
HandicappedPets.com is proud to share the news of another achievement for a dog using a Walkin' Wheels dog wheelchair! Selina, a rescued Chihuahua mix, was inducted into the New Jersey Veterinary Medical Association Hall of Fame earlier this month. Selina was adopted from a shelter in New York City just days before she was scheduled to be euthanized. She has undergone back surgery and extensive physical rehabilitation treatments since being adopted by veterinarian technician Melissa Stevens...Read More
All around the world, animal shelters, rescue groups, veterinarians and pet owners are choosing the fully adjustable Walkin’ Wheels dog wheelchair for their companions that are experiencing mobility problems. This week, we received a very special update from Russia with love from Masya and her caretaker Lucy who hopes to find this wonderful wheelchair dog a home of her own.
Masya has been successfully using her pink Walkin’ Wheels dog wheelchair for over six months now. The shelter was extremely grateful to have been provided with a new wheelchair to replace a handmade cart that was not providing adequate support. Now, Masya loves to run at full speed in her Walkin’ Wheels, and the shelter has nicknamed her Rocket...Read More
This is Pugsley, my 13 year old blind diabetic pug. She lost her eyes due to glaucoma 2 years ago. She is also a cancer survivor. Over the past year, her hind legs have been losing muscle mass which caused her to fall down. Within the past two weeks, it had gotten to the point where she did not want to walk anymore. For everything she has been through, she still has a lot of pep to her. My coworker and I were researching dog wheelchair options for Miss Pugsley. We saw video after video watching pets gain their mobility back with Walkin' Wheels dog wheelchairs. We were amazed at how happy the dogs were! I wasn't sure if my blind dog would take to her cart, but she sure did!...Read More
With the record setting snowfalls we have been having in New England this year, we couldn’t wait to feature Alfie as our pet of the week. He is already enjoying the snow out in Colorado in his Walkin’ Wheels, and we are looking forward to follow up photos of him using our new Walkin’ Ski Attachment.
His family reports to us that, “Alfie took to his Walkin’ Wheels like a duck to water, and we have not seen him so happy in over a year and half.” They asked that we share his photos so that other pet owners can know that Walkin’ Wheels is such a wonderful product...Read More
There is no stopping Stephie the bulldog! In spite of recent spinal trauma that has required her to use a Walkin’ Wheels dog wheelchair, Stephie continues to strut her stuff and showcase her doggie fashions for all of her Facebook friends to see. Stephie has appeared recently in outfits ranging from Hello Kitty to more relaxed styles featuring a sweatshirt and jeans. We have enjoyed several of Stephie’s posts to our own Facebook page, so we wanted to learn more about her and feature her as our profile pet of the week.
Stephie’s pet parent Leizza Bradford shared the following:
Stephie became suddenly paralyzed on the evening of January 10, 2015 and was taken to the emergency clinic the following morning. She was referred to a neurologist who performed surgery to relieve pressure on several compressed discs...Read More
When we saw the adorable Guppie posted on our Facebook page, we knew that we had to learn more about her. Guppie is using the Walkin’ Wheels Mini dog wheelchair with the optional front vest designed specifically for dachshunds.
Guppie’s pet parent Jessica Gruenberg shared the story of how they met online.
I was looking for another dachshund as a playmate for the one I currently had. I saw Guppie’s picture on Craigslist and just fell in love. She had been found wandering the streets of Ypsilanti, Mi in pretty bad shape. She had toenails so long they were curling, internal injuries from being kicked, and was not at a healthy weight. A young woman took her in and got her to a vet where they spayed her and got her healthy. They believed Guppie had at one time been a backyard breeder...Read More
Our handicapped pet of the week is Richard from Slovenia who proves that he is ready to face the winter with his Walkin’ Wheels dog wheelchair, Walkin’ Pet Boots and Walkin’ Drag Bag.
Richard’s family reports that life is so much better now that he can rejoin his gang for walks outside and spend time playing in the snow. The boots and drag bag provide an extra layer of warmth and protection. We recently received this video of Richard’s fourth time in his Walkin’ Wheels that we could not wait to share...Read More
German shepherds are sadly one of the breeds most genetically predisposed to developing degenerative myelopathy, or DM. The disease causes progressive deterioration of the spinal column that begins with hind limb weakness and ultimately leads to paralysis. Our pet of the week Milo, however, is proof that dogs with DM can cope extremely well especially when they are introduced to using a Walkin’ Wheels dog wheelchair at the early onset of the disease. While dogs at any stage of degenerative myelopathy can benefit from a wheelchair, introducing one sooner rather than later can help maintain strength and activity levels. We are thrilled to share this testimonial and photos of Milo that we received from his family who was so grateful to be celebrating the holidays with their beloved companion...Read More
Jameson, our 10 year old black Labrador Retriever, was recently diagnosed with Degenerative Myelopathy. He lost the ability to walk using his back legs. We ordered the Walkin' Wheels dog wheelchair in December, and he is doing great! People drive by us on walks and stop to say how happy they feel when they see him out walking again! Thank you so much for helping our dog and making everyone who sees him smile!
Mike, Holly and Jameson!...Read More
We love hearing stories from our customers about how they had almost given up hope for their dog, but then Walkin’ Wheels made it possible for him or her to enjoy life again! We received this message along with video and photos of Briana Burke’s Labrador Max, and we could not wait to showcase him as our Handicapped Pet of the Week:
After leaving home to work on the TV show "Nashville", I kept receiving reports from home that, “Max wasn't doing well, couldn't get around and was having many accidents in the house due to his arthritis and hip dysplasia.”
On hiatus after our first season, I really thought I was coming home to say goodbye to my dog. I bought the Walkin’ Wheels dog wheelchair as a last ditch effort, and this video was the result of his first day out! Daily walks on his Walkin’ Wheels and the movement of his back legs without weight on them has helped improve Max's strength and mobility in his hind quarters...Read More
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)...Read More
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...Read More
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.
