"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 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.
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.
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
It has been nearly four years since we first met Duke, a stray dog that was cruelly shot and thrown into the Des Moines River on a freezing cold day in January 2011. It was a miracle that Duke was able to survive such cruelty, but even more miraculous is the life that Duke has led since that fateful day. Duke’s heartwarming tale of rescue and rehabilitation is one of thirteen inspirational chapters included in the book “Miracle Dogs – Adventures on Wheels” by Sandy Johnson. This holiday season, we hope that you will join us in celebrating the spirit of giving by purchasing a copy for every animal lover on your holiday list...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
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)...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.
