The Leg Rings are the rear support system for the pet. Comfortable foam leg rings connected in the center with touch-fastener closures form a flexible “seat” for the pet. Rubber-coated wires wrap around the Wheelchair Frame to connect the Leg Rings easily to the Wheelchair Frame with rubber-coated wires that wrap around the frame.
Stirrups are used to hold the pet’s legs off the ground if the rear legs are paralyzed. The top end of each stirrup is secured around each back knob of the Wheelchair Frame. The top lock balls are used to hold stirrups in place; the bottom lock balls are secured above the dog’s hocks.

How to choose the right size
1. Measure the Rear Leg Height to the toe pad, ideally when your pet is laying down. Do not pull the leg tight; leave some natural bend.
2. Measure your pet’s length or armpit to rump (ATR).

Frequently Asked Questions
Yes, you can (rear wheelchairs, only). Go here to see the pros/cons of where to make your purchase!
Yes, that’s the point of the dog wheelchair — to help your dog get the exercise he needs and do his business.
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.
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.
For many pets using a MINI, it is okay 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.
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.
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.
This wheelchair folds flat for easy transport.
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.
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. Please click here for full return policy.
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.
Our patented wheelchairs retain their value because they can be resold or donated to other dogs because they are fully adjustable.

Happy Dog. Proud Dad.
Tiff has got her confidence up and can make it to the water bowl unassisted. She is very happy, and dad is very proud!
Degenerative Disc Disease Can’t Keep Bandit Down
Bandit became suddenly paralyzed in his back legs and was diagnosed with degenerative disc disease. We were devastated by his diagnosis. I ordered the Walkin’ Wheels, hoping it would make a difference and it did! It’s been amazing to see him “walking” around again. Thank you, Walkin’ Wheels!
Poodle Loves Walkin’ Wheels
I received your Walkin’ Wheels Mini dog wheelchair for my 16-year-old poodle who has a degenerative disorder that has finally cost him the use of his back legs. The first day I put him in the wheelchair, he was hesitant, but now is happily strolling and walking fast. He also has difficulty with his sight and sound, but is quickly compensating for that too. His name is Casey, and I think this wheelchair will make his golden years a little happier. He is always supervised. Again, thank you. We are loving it!
