How to Choose the Right Size
The weight of the dog on the sizing guide is for reference only. Every dog is shaped differently, and we recommend using the length measurement as your primary measurement.
When measuring start at the base of the rib cage. Every dog positions their legs differently, and this can change the size scooter your pet needs. If your pet’s legs extend behind them as they drag, measure to the tips of their toes, if your dog sits on their legs as they scoot, measure to the end of the rump.
|Walkin’ Scooter Size||Length||Weight Range||Scooter Base Width|
|XSmall||11″||9 – 12 lbs||15″|
|Small||13″||10 – 19 lbs||15″|
|Medium||15.5″||15 – 25 lbs||15″|
|Medium/Large||15.5″||20 – 30 lbs||20″|
|Large||19″||31 – 45 lbs||20″|
|XLarge||22″||45 – 65 lbs||20″|

Is the Walkin’ Scooter Right for My Pet?
The Walkin Scooter Helps Disabled Pets Stay Active!
The Walkin’ Pet Scooter gives your best friend the happy, healthy life they deserve. The Scooter is designed to help pets with no use of their back legs and end up dragging their hind end around in the home when they are not using a pet wheelchair or other mobility device. The scooter helps keep paralyzed pets active, allowing them to glide around the house on wheels instead of dragging and allows them to play and enjoy quality time with the family! The Walkin’ Scooter is not intended for pets that just have rear end weakness, but we would instead recommend the Walkin’ Wheels as it can give them similar independence to the Scooter, but can also be used outdoors. The Scooter is designed specifically to help protect pets who either drag or scoot themselves across the floor. If your pet lifts up their hind end completely off of the ground when moving throughout your home, we would recommend considering either the Walkin’ Wheels, or our Walkin’ Drag Bag , as when they lift their rear ends they would also be lifting the Scooter base with them.
What to Expect:
The Walkin’ Scooter is designed specifically to assist pets with rear leg paralysis comfortably move throughout the house. We recommend starting off slowly introducing it and using a lot of positive reinforcement, whether that is treats or praise. The Walkin’ Scooter will allow your pet to independently and freely move throughout the house without the worry of them injuring themselves from dragging their rear end on the ground. Because of the Scooters design your pet will be able to sit and lie down while in it, meaning you can leave your pet in the Scooter for extended periods of time without having to worry about removing them from it to rest. With that in mind we do recommend supervision while your pet is in their Scooter as there is always the possibility that the scooter can get stuck on or under a piece of furniture, doorway, or similar obstruction. If you would like to be able to leave your pet in the Scooter unsupervised we suggest waiting a bit as over time you and your pet will get to know the limitations of the scooter and be able to judge this based on the individual circumstances. Also please note that while the Scooter is great for incontinent pets using a diaper or male wrap, hygiene needs to be maintained to keep your pet healthy and comfortable in the Scooter.
For Best Results:
Whether your pet is newly paralyzed, or has been so for a while the Walkin Scooter is designed to assist them in staying active throughout the house and help them keep up with you. Their situation, whether new or old, can be something that causes more anxiety and can make new items and experiences scary. This is why it is important to slowly introduce your pet to the Walkin’ Scooter. Doing so will assist in creating a positive association with the Scooter. This in turn will make it even easier for you to help get them into the Scooter, and help them gain confidence in themselves while using the Scooter.
