How Does It Compare?
Custom vs. Adjustable Dog Wheelchairs.
In the past, dog wheelchairs were custom-made for every dog. To order, you would need to take a number of exact measurements and send them away to have the wheelchair made. When you received it a couple of weeks later, it would fit your dog if you made the measurements correctly. The downside is that if your dog grew, gained weight, or had changes in health, the wheelchair would not adjust to accommodate those changes. In addition, if your dog was simply uncomfortable in the chair, there was little or nothing you could do. When the owner of a custom-made wheelchair no longer needed it, there wasn’t much he could do with it, as the chair only fit a certain shape and size of dog.
Now, with the adjustable dog wheelchair, the product is shipped same day and requires only one measurement and the dog’s height, so the correct wheel size can be chosen. The cart fits perfectly because you can adjust it as needed, without tools, to accommodate the changes in your pet. When you’re done with it, it can be moved on to fit another dog. If you choose to re-sell it, you can often get 75% of what you paid for it on Ebay or on our dog wheelchair classifieds webpage.
The Walkin’ Wheels wheelchair is available in 4 fully adjustable frame sizes (mini, small, medium, large), to accommodate dogs from 2-180 lbs.! The mini and small frames can also fit cats.
Wheelchair Folds Flat, Legs Angle for Adjustability
The fact that the wheelchair (mini, medium, large) folds flat with the twist of a dial is a great benefit. First, the angle of the wheel can be adjusted backwards for extremely active dogs (like the one that climbed Mt. Washington in a dog wheelchair – World Record!) or angles forward for less active dogs. This also means that you can fold up the wheelchair to carry with you, or put in the trunk of a car. You can’t do that with other dog wheelchairs!
The Walkin’ Wheels rear wheelchair can be converted into a 4-wheel/quad wheelchair with a Front Wheel Attachment, if the front limbs on a dog become impaired as well as the rear. The Walkin’ Wheels can also be initially purchased as a 4-wheel/quad, if the dog already needs support in the front and back.
The Walkin’ Wheels dog wheelchair is a great value, due to both its superb quality and resale value. There are some less expensive ones available made of PVC, and one that comes unassembled and you have to assemble yourself. (Careful: they hide this fact in their ads.) The fact is, you don’t want to take any chances when it comes to your dog’s health and comfort and, if you calculate in the ability to re-sell the wheelchair, the resale value makes it the lowest cost choice.
Uses for a Dog Wheelchair
Adjustable dog wheelchairs can be used for short-term rehabilitation as well as long-term use. This is an excellent feature. For rehabilitation, you can use it for a short period, adjusting it as needed to put more or less weight on the dog’s legs and back end.
Pet hospitals and veterinary clinics often have a few on hand to lend or rent out for short-term use. Or you can use the Walkin’ Wheels Rental program which allows you to get a wheelchair for eight weeks at about $35/week. The program works with a buy-back feature, where you are guaranteed half the purchase price refunded in eight weeks.
Dog Wheelchair Buyer’s Checklist
1 – Facebook Community. Read what other people are saying, in public. The company with the largest Facebook community has something special.
2 – Warranty Policy. What is the return policy? (Careful: One company claims No Questions Asked 100% returns, but this isn’t what their customers say.)
3 – Resale Value. Can the dog wheelchair be easily adjusted to fit other dogs? What is the re-sale value?
4 – Customer Support. Does the company have a toll-free number where knowledgeable people can help?
5 – Comfort. Does the chair adjust so the dog can be comfortable?
6 – Ship Time. How long does it take to ship the product?
