Homemade and Do It Yourself Wheelchairs for Dogs, Cats or Other Pets.
A dog cart, or wheelchair for pets can offer a handicapped dog years of joy and freedom. Professionally made dog carts are a significant investment, often costing $300.00 - $500.00. Many of us choose to build our own. This section of our website is devoted to ideas, plans, and experiences around home made and DIY (do it yourself) carts. We hope you'll add yours.

My best buddy Ozo(10 years old) has degenerative Myelopathy, and hasn't been able to walk unassisted since February of this year. It took him almost a year to get that way from the first time we saw he was having problems walking in smooth surfaces. We have done about everything we can for him medically.
I have an 8 yr. old dachshund that is the joy of my life. I adore her. Her back legs no longer work...and she was NEVER one for exercise!
I looked at what others did, saw what I could and could not do. I am a rather creative middle aged woman and figured out some alternatives. It took a couple of tries, but I think we have one that is going to work.
Here she is in her physical therapy cart. It wouldn't be ideal for long term use, because the vet wrap isn't secure enough. However, it works great for 15 minute physical therapy sessions to build up her front leg strength. It also allows her to use her one good leg.
It's John's 2 wheeled cart. This cart has been specifically designed for mid-back injuries. It creates a better weight distribution than any commercial cart I have seen. It is not limited to the mid-back injured dog.
I found some creative quality products. Many of these are very well crafted and great quality. Some are quite expensive. I know there is a need and many people cannot afford the “high-tech” models. In addition, many of the carts are for animals who have good use of their front legs – my design is for those who have poor to no use of 3 or 4 legs.
The Amigo Dog Wheelchair is a brilliant invention of Israeli engineer Nir Shalom. This outstanding innovation is more of a prosthetic as it attaches securely to the dog and works like a part of his or her body. We were so impressed with this invention that we thought we would share his video.
