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). Later, when my wife came home and Kodi came into the garage to greet her, he walked over to his Walkin' Wheels to show her! He wanted to go on another walk!
We're so pleased with our Walkin' Wheels dog wheelchair and want to encourage others in similar situations.
