Product Specifications

What’s in the Box?

Small Walkin' Wheels Front Attachment

  • 1 set (2) Wheels and Struts
  • 2 Extenders
  • 1 set Leg Rings
  • Nuts, Bolts, and Allen Key

A: Left and Right Extenders (2).
These replace the extenders that originally came with your Walkin’ Wheels Rear wheelchair. The extenders will have a white label with “left front” or “right front.” Socket shoulder screws (4) should be on the outside of the wheelchair and are used to attach the leg rings.

B: Legs (2).
Silver struts (attached to C1 or C2) fit inside the wheelchair legs. The height can be adjusted by a push button on each strut.

C1: Struts and 3” wheels (2).
The caster adapters will be marked with a raised “L” or “R” to indicate which side they are installed on. This is VERY important. The raised L or R should face the inside of the wheelchair with you standing behind the wheelchair.
C2: Struts and 2” wheels (2).
Struts come attached to 2” wheels for shorter dogs like Dachshunds. These are labeled “L” or “R” to indicate which side they are installed on.

D: Front Leg Rings (1).
You will not need to use the front harness that comes with the rear wheelchair. You will install the front leg rings instead, just like the rear leg rings. Leg rings should look like two Cs and not two Vs. The straps go over the frame; pull the black plastic clip over the socket shoulder screw and push upward. You will hear a click when it is locked into place. The dog’s front legs will go inside each ring to support his/her body in the front. To remove the leg rings, put your thumb on the circle and pull down.

E: Bag of screws (1).
Only for replacements, if needed.

How to choose the right size

Measuring Your Pet

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).

3-7.9″ Less than 9.9″
3-7.9″ Greater than 10″
8-12.9″ Less than 9.9″
8-12.9″ Greater than 10″
13-17″ Less than 9.9″

Frequently Asked Questions

Only Walkin’ Wheels REAR wheelchairs are currently available on Amazon.

Yes, that’s the point of the dog wheelchair — to help your dog get the exercise he needs and do his business.



Only Walkin’ Wheels REAR wheelchairs are currently available on Amazon.

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.

No, your dog will not be able to lie down in a quad (full support/4-wheel) 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.

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.

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.

Product Reviews

Extra Support & Stability

Wheeler has a neurological disorder, under-developed spinal cord, and partially deformed front limbs. When he’s out of his wheels, he “flops” around the floor almost like he’s swimming. His quad has provided him with extra support and stability. It allows him to get off his chest by taking pressure off it while positioning him in a more natural position. The only issue I’ve found is he has extra difficulty stopping or turning, which is not an actual issue with the physical quad itself, but due to the way Wheeler’s front limbs fold outwards like a seal’s flippers. The quad has given Wheeler a better quality of life regardless of his lack of ability to turn or stop without assistance. I’m very pleased with this product and have constantly recommended it to others, as well as keeping brochures on me at all times in case anyone ever asks about them. I currently own 3 different sizes of Walkin’ Wheels and have tried multiple other brands of wheelchairs, but since owning our first (Wheeler’s) Walkin’ Wheels, I’ve fallen in love with this brand of wheelchairs and will continue to use them/recommend them to others. We’re proud to say that we’re Walkin’ Wheels customers for life!
