What Makes the SureFit® Calculator the Best Choice?

SureFit® Guarantee: we guarantee the perfect size, or we’ll pay your return shipping costs if an exchange is needed. That way there’s no doubt your pet will get the perfect fit.

We highly recommend using our SureFit® Calculator as it ensures the perfect custom fit for your pet. It requires a couple measurements, but only so we can provide your pet with the very best experience.

We recognize this takes a few minutes of your time, but those minutes are worth the happiness your pet will experience once they try out their wheelchair for the first time. Our wheelchairs have already helped more than 81,000 other pets. Let’s make that 81,001!

Other companies simply have you select a wheelchair based on weight, but that often results in a poor fit. Why? A 30 lb bulldog has a very different body type from a 30 lb corgi, but those companies will provide both with the same wheelchair.

rear dog wheelchair frame

Frame:

The Frame is powder-coated aluminum in blue, pink, or camo. It will not bend, break, or rust. The molded plastic knuckles attach the frame to the legs; 360 degrees of ‘teeth’ hold the knuckle in place. On the side of the knuckle, a spring-loaded turning cap allows you to loosen the knuckle and swivel the legs up or down.

dog wheelchair width connector

Width Connectors: (2 connectors with regular frame)

The width connector connects the left and right side of the frame together. If the width of your dog is 5- 9.5 inches, you will use the smaller width connector; 9-13.5 inches will need the longer connector.

dog wheelchair extender

Length Extenders: (2 extender sets with regular frame)

The adjustable length extenders connect the front harness in place with the wheelchair. There are two different sizes. If the dog is 9-19 inches, the smaller extenders are used. The small extenders will already be attached to the wheelchair. If the animal’s length is 18-25 inches, the larger extenders are needed. Length is determined by back of front leg to back of rear leg.

dog wheelchair front harness

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.

dog wheelchair 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 for dog wheelchair

Struts & Foam Wheels:

Depending on your pet’s fold of flank measurement, you will receive a set of wheels attached to struts. Struts snap into the leg of the wheelchair frame and adjust to the height needed. Struts are adjustable within a range of 3 inches and come in 4 different sizes: 6”, 9”, 12”, & 15”. The foam wheels are great for all terrains. They feature a dense foam interior with an outer rubber layer. These wheels will not puncture, they wear extremely well, and are easy to clean. Sizes available: 4″, 8″,12″ & 16″.

air tires for dog wheelchair

Struts & Air-Filled Pneumatic Tires: (optional upgrade)

Depending on your pet’s fold of flank measurement, you will receive a set of wheels attached to struts. Struts snap into the leg of the wheelchair frame and adjust to the height needed. Struts are adjustable within a range of 3 inches and come in 4 different sizes: 6”, 9”, 12”, & 15”. Air-filled pneumatic tires are an optional item for very active dogs, improved traction, and off-road use. Great for hiking on rough surfaces. These tires are like mountain bike tires and have a deep tread and a replaceable inner tube. Available for an additional $40. Sizes available: 12″ & 16″.

dog wheelchair belly support

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.

dog wheelchair stirrups for paralyzed dog

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.

dog wheelchair tool kit


Tool Kit:

The tool kit comes in a plastic bag and includes an Allen wrench and set screws. The (optional) set screws may be used to tighten up the wheelchair frame and reduce flexibility, depending on your preference.

Can my pet pee and poop in the wheelchair?

Yes! In fact, your dog’s wheelchair is designed so that dogs can go to the bathroom and get the exercise they need. Not only can pets pee and poop while using their dog wheelchair, but their wheelchair also actually encourages them to go. A “down” dog tends to be less active, which can impact the internal functions of their body. Once a dog is in their wheelchair, they are standing upright and moving more which encourages their body to function correctly and allow them to relieve themselves naturally.

How does it work?

Both male and female pets can pee and poop freely while using their wheelchair. Their hind end is fully supported from underneath by their rear leg rings keeping them in a comfortable and natural standing position. Although your pet can not squat while in their wheelchair, they will relieve themselves while standing.

How do I measure my dog for a wheelchair?

It’s easy to determine the right size Walkin’ Wheels wheelchair for your pet. All you need is one simple measurement to choose the right size wheelchair for 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.

Can my dog still use their back legs with the wheelchair?

Yes, the dog wheelchair will gives pets the support they need to stand, walk, and rebuild their strength. The wheelchair supports your dog to relieve pressure and reduce the weight placed on their legs making it easier for them to walk. We encourage your dog to use his/her rear legs to maintain muscle mass and to get exercise, while using their cart your pet will work to develop the muscle in the rear legs and build up their stamina as they exercise. A dog does not need to be fully paralyzed to benefit from using a dog wheelchair. If the rear legs are paralyzed, then the stirrups will keep their legs from dragging.

Can my dog use their Walkin’ Wheels inside 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 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.

How do I get my dog into their wheelchair?

It’s very easy to get your dog in and out of their Walkin’ Wheels dog wheelchair. First, place the front harness on your pet and place your dog on the ground with the wheelchair behind them. Lift their hind legs and place them through the leg rings before lifting the side bars and clipping the harness to the wheelchair frame.

Is the wheelchair easy to transport?

Yes, the Walkin’ Wheels is very easy to transport. Simply turn the dial on the knuckle wheelchair to fold in the wheels and struts, making it easy to carry and travel with.

Will this wheelchair rehabilitate my dog?

Every dog and disability are unique, so is their recovery process. We have seen varying degrees of rehabilitation with dogs using the wheelchair. Some dogs have been able to improve so much that they no longer needed the wheelchair. 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. Please click here for full return policy.

How to tell if the cart is adjusted properly?

When the wheelchair is adjusted properly, the animal stands in a ‘natural’ position. Here’s what to check (refer to the figure below):

A: Knuckle at the hips. If you were to draw an imaginary line from one knuckle to the other, the line would pass right through the dog’s hips where the bone of the leg meets the bones of the body. If the knuckle is not aligned there, tighten harness and/or adjust length. Allow 1″ on each side between dog and black knuckle.

B: Front Support loop at the shoulder. The loop on the front harness that the extender bar goes through should be at the shoulder. Adjust the straps so that the loop is held firmly against the shoulder, then clip into wheelchair.

C: The dog’s back needs to be straight or arched up (slight hunch). In this photo, the dog’s back is arched down a little. This is NOT correct and this dog needs the Belly Strap.

D: The back legs need to be just touching, or just off the ground, depending on the health of the back legs. If the dog wants to use his back legs, then allow his feet to touch lightly. This is often adjusted by tightening the straps that hold the harness to the frame – this brings the dog’s seat up. (Take the dog out of the harness before adjusting.) If the height of the harness cannot be changed, then lengthen the leg struts. Consider boots if the feet drag. Use the stirrups if the dog cannot use his back legs or the feet are dragging on the ground.

E: The horizontal extender bar needs to be level.

What is the difference between foam wheels and air tires?

Foam wheels 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.

Air tires are for very active dogs that like to go hiking on rough surfaces. These tires are like mountain bike tires. They have a nice deep tread and a replaceable inner tube (will need to be filled with air occasionally). There is an additional cost of $40.00 for the set.

Dog Able to Adventure Again

The amount of life and freedom the wheelchair has given Tank is incredible!! I was worried after he went paralyzed, that we would no longer be able to adventure through the woods or walk around his favorite lake anymore. But with Tank’s Walkin’ Wheels, we’re still able to go on adventures!! The wheelchair is strongly built and lightweight. 10/10 recommendation!
