Rear Walkin’ Wheels Mini sold separately
(A1 OR A2) 1 Set Wheels and Struts: The wheels come attached to the struts; you will get just one set of wheels/struts, depending on the size you need. The Mini Front Wheel Attachment has 3 sizes. The larger 2 sizes (A2) come with a stabilization bar for support.
(B) Leg Ring Clamps: 4 single Clamps are included to attach to the wheelchair frame to prevent Leg Ring from sliding.

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.
Extra Fastener Set:
The Extra Fastener Set comes with extra carriage bolts, screws, nuts, and washers in case of unexpected loss of these items from the Wheelchair Frame or Front Harness.
Leg Ring Clamps (optional):
4 Double and 2 Single Clamps are included for use if needed. Clamps can be attached to Wheelchair Frame to prevent Leg Rings from sliding forward.
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).

Can I buy a Walkin’ Wheels dog wheelchair on Amazon?
Only Walkin’ Wheels REAR wheelchairs are currently available on Amazon.
“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 lie down in the wheelchair?”
No, your dog will not be able to lie down in a quad (full support/4-wheel) 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 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 need the wheelchair. Every dog and disability is unique. While your dog is in the wheelchair, he or she is getting physical exercise, which can improve both 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.
