Doxi Leg Rings

Leg Rings:

The Leg Rings are the rear support system for the pet. Comfortable foam leg rings connected in the center with Velcro form a flexible “seat” for the pet. Rubber-coated wires wrap go through the clamps and around the Wheelchair Frame to connect the Leg Rings easily to the Wheelchair Frame with rubber-coated wires that wrap around the frame to secure tightly.

Small Wheelchair Frame

Frame:

The frame is blue, camo, or pink powder-coated aluminum. It will not bend, break, or rust. Black knuckles are on each side of the frame, which hold the leg of the wheelchair to the frame. The wheels/struts will be inserted into the leg and adjusted to the proper height. The knuckle has a high and low setting which can be adjusted with a Phillips screwdriver.

Width Connectors

Width Connectors:

Your wheelchair will come with two width connectors (7″ and 4″). One is already installed in the back of your cart. If you need more width, the wheelchair comes equipped with a longer connector in the box.

Length Extenders

Length Extenders:

Your wheelchair will come with two extenders (side rails) installed, which determine the length of your dog. The length of the extender should end in the middle of the dog’s front leg. It should not pass the front leg. 

Small Front Harness for Wheelchair

The Front Harness

The dog’s head goes between the blue and black straps. The red strap goes under the dog’s front legs and clips on the side of the harness. The shoulder pads are made of neoprene and keep the straps and buckles from causing discomfort for the dog. Neoprene comfort sleeves wrap around the straps for the dog’s comfort. Comfort sleeves can be cut in half if they are too long.

Leg Rings

Leg Rings:

The dog’s hindquarters are held in place by the leg rings, or our rear harness support system. The leg rings can also be used as a lifting harness when out of the wheelchair; the excess strapping can be touch-fastened together to make handles on each side.

Wheels and Struts for Walkin' Wheels Small

Wheels & Struts:

The wheels are attached to a metal piece called a “strut.” Four-inch foam wheels come standard, which are great for all terrains. They feature a dense foam interior with an outer rubber layer. These wheels will not puncture, wear extremely well, and are easy to clean. Eight-inch wheels are also available, depending on dog’s measurements.

Small Belly Belt

Belly Belt:

The Belly Belt will help support your dog’s back. It is not always necessary to use the belly belt, but is highly recommended for dogs with a long back, overweight or elderly dogs, dogs with curvature of the spine, and dogs with disc problems.

Stirrups for Small Walkin' Wheels

Stirrups:

Stirrups are used to hold the dog’s legs off the ground so they don’t drag due to paralysis, knuckling under, or foot injuries. The adjustable stirrups are positioned to hold the foot up at the hock. If your dog doesn’t need them, the stirrups may be removed from the wheelchair.

Manual

The manual gives instructions and tips on assembling and using the Walkin’ Wheels Wheelchair.

FAQs

Can I buy a Walkin’ Wheels dog wheelchair on Amazon?
Yes, you can (rear wheelchairs, only). Go here to see the pros/cons of where to make your purchase!

"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 do his business.

 
 

 

"Can my dog sit in a wheelchair?"
No. Our chair is designed NEVER to collapse on the dog’s leg or spine. We’ve gone to great lengths to be sure of it. The chairs are designed with the help of veterinarians and rehabilitation specialists to hold the dog up, keeping the spine and legs in the optimal position for safety and healing.

What’s more, the purpose of the chair is to give the dog exercise and the freedom to go outside and do his business. When the dog is tired, you should never leave him in the chair.

The reviews we have seen of the experimental sit-down spring-loaded style have not been positive. Although we have done a great deal of research, we have not found a safe way for a chair to collapse on a dog.

"Can my dog use their Walkin’ Wheels insisde the house?"
Yes. The Walkin’ Wheels is designed to be used both indoors and outside. If your paralyzed pet needs an indoor mobility solution that can be worn for extended periods of time, we recommend the Walkin’ Scooter.

"Can my dog lie down in the wheelchair?"
If you have a Dachshund or Corgi, it is OK for them to take a rest up against a pillow or bed, because their legs are so short. Otherwise, it is not recommended, due to back or disc issues that could worsen by laying down in the wheelchair.

"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, then the stirrups will keep their legs from dragging.

"How Do I Measure My Dog?"

"How soon will I get my wheelchair?"
All wheelchair orders placed prior to 12 Noon EST Monday through Friday will ship the same day. Shipping time can range from one to five business days. Express shipping options are also available.

"Will this wheelchair rehabilitate my dog?"
We have seen varying degrees of recovery with dogs using the wheelchair. Some dogs have been able to improve so much that they no longer needed the wheelchair. Every dog and disability are unique. While your dog is in the wheelchair they are getting physical therapy improving their physical and mental health.

"What is the return policy?"
It is our intention that every Walkin’ Wheels user be happy with their wheelchair. If you experience problems, please call us. Often we can help with a simple adjustment. If you feel the wheelchair is not for you, we can issue a RETURN MATERIALS AUTHORIZATION. Please note that wheelchairs returned without a return materials authorization will not receive credit. Please click here for full return policy.

"Can my dog still use his back legs with this wheelchair?"
Yes, this will help him/her develop the muscle in the rear legs while using the toe pads to push off. If the legs are paralyzed, then you will use the stirrups to hold the feet off the ground.

"Is it normal for the side bars to be slanted downward?" 
Yes, this is perfectly normal for a Dachshund due to the fact that their rear legs are three times longer than front legs.

First Steps Yield Tail Wagging Glee.

Keebler, an approximately 8-year old dachshund, has found a new home! Here is his first photo with his new family. As you can see, he’ll have some dachshund siblings, Brewster and Chloe, along with 2 Labrador retrievers, Harvest and Rona. The family is very experienced with caring for older pets.

Keebler had been found as a stray on the side of the road and brought to the humane society in the hopes that his owner would be found. When no owners came forward to claim Keebler, Dr. Christine Schlupf began exploring options for his mobility needs and knew that HandicappedPets.com had products available for pets that cannot walk on their own.

As Keebler took his first steps in his dog wheelchair with tail wagging glee and obvious doggie gratitude, we cheered alongside staff and volunteers from the humane society and members of the media who joined us from The Nashua TelegraphWMUR-TV and NH1 News. Watch Keebler’s first steps in the video.

 

Dachshund with IVDD Gets 2nd Chance

We adopted Mr. Odie in 2016. He had a beautiful nature and quickly became a part of our family. In April of this year, he unfortunately got struck down with IVDD. He was rushed in for emergency surgery and everything went well, but he wasn’t showing any signs of improvement post op. We had another MRI done; this was due to a blood clot in his spine that did further damage. Since then, he’s continued physiotherapy, but has still lost most of his function. His wheelchair has changed his quality of life, giving him freedom. The smile on his face says it all! We are forever thankful and blessed for the Walkin’ Pets wheelchair, giving him a second chance no matter his disabilities.

Mr. Odie Dachshund Wheelchair

Dachshund Champion

Swayze is the loving seven-year-old furbaby of Veronica in Kentucky. In January, he slipped five discs and became paralyzed from the middle down. His momma refused to give up, as he never has on her either. He has been her best friend through her father passing, cancer, and several life changes. She knew she would fight for him.

After raising enough money to get his dog wheelchair, she breathed a sigh of relief that he would once again be mobile. On Valentine’s Day, the chair arrived. Along with that came tears of joy and the seemingly appreciative reaction of this loving pup. Thank you for giving us that back.
