Dog Wheelchairs from Walkin Wheels
Our Walkin Wheels Dog Wheelchairs are different from any cart that has been available in the past. So different, that it is stocked and sold by veterinarians, rehab centres, clinics and pet professionals. The custom built wheelchairs for dogs of the past could not be stocked by shops, as they took weeks to build and required exacting measurements. This veterinarian approved dog wheelchair is available for overnight delivery, and sets up minutes. The Walkin Wheels wheelchair offers all the mobility and comfort of custom carts with none of the problems.
When you order you Walkin Wheels Dog Wheelchair from Zoomadog, you will get the correctly sized kit ready to put together at home.

- A Universal Frame that can be adjusted for dogs from 20 - 180 pounds (or the Walkin' Wheels Mini for smaller dogs).

The back of the dog is held in place by our leg rings, or our rear harness. We have found that most dogs adapt quickly to the leg rings. For animals with more complicated comfort needs, our rear support harness can be a convenient and stable harnessing system. The leg rings are included with the cart. The harness is optional.
The Front Harness
The front harness goes around the neck of the dog, with another strap (red) that clips underneath the chest.
The shoulder pad (A) is made of neoprene and keeps the straps and buckles from causing discomfort for the dog. The red strap (B) goes behind the front leg, underneath the chest and holds the front harness securely in place. Neoprene comfort sleeves wrap around the straps for the dogs comfort. The ONLY difference between the large and small front harness is the neoprene comfort sleeves. The comfort sleeves can be cut in half for smaller dogs. Girth of chest up to 44", or XL up to 64"
The Parts of the Dog Wheelchair
The Frame itself is powder-coated aluminum. It will not bend, break, or rust. The molded plastic knuckles attach the frame and the legs in such a way they cannot possibly slip. 360 degrees of 'teeth' hold the knuckle in place at every point.
On the side of the knuckle, a spring-loaded turning cap allows you to loosen the knuckle and swivel the legs up or down.
About three turns of the knob should be enough. Do not turn the dial so that it comes all the way off -- although if you do, it is easy to screw back on.
The back connector connects the left and right side of the frame together. If the width of your dog is 5 - 9 1/2 inches, you will use the smaller back connector. 9 - 13.5 inches will need the longer connector. Don't worry though, the "Cart Wizard" will choose the correct size for you when you get to our shopping cart to buy a walkin' wheels.
These are called the Length Extenders. The length extender connects the front harness in place with the cart. The length extenders are adjustable. However there are two different sizes. If your animal's length is 18-25 inches you will need the larger extender, If the animal is 9-19 inches you will need the smaller extender.
These are the struts. They are what the wheels are attached to which then snap into the cart. The struts are adjustable within a range of about three inches. The struts come in 4 different sizes from 6 to 15 inches. The correct strut will be chosen for you based on the "Groin to Ground" measurement.
Available are 4 sizes of Foam-Filled wheels; 4", 8", and (not shown) 12" and 16". The 12" and 16" wheels are outfitted with bearings and are also available as Air-Filled pneumatic tires for active dogs, improved traction, and off-road use. The correct size wheel is chosen based on the Groin to Ground measurement.
Walkin Wheels Handles:
Our Walkin Wheels rear harness becomes a handy lifting sling when you attach these adjustable straps. Great for helping dogs around when they are not in the cart. Easy on your back too! Safe and easy to use. They clip onto the rings on the rear harness or the leg rings. Straps can also be clipped onto the stirrup holders on the back of the cart to help lift the wheelchair.
These are used to keep your animal's back legs from dragging on the ground or if the legs are paralyzed or weak. The length of the stirrups can be easily adjusted by moving the clip down on the rope and re-tying the knot.
It comes with every cart order, and has very easy step by step instructions on how to adjust and use the cart.
