When is your dog ready for a wheelchair?
It is so important your dog has two good front legs for wheels to keep your dog walking independently as long as possible and with the option of having the legs down but supported, you can keep your dogs muscles working even if for short periods to prevent further muscle wasting. With the Walkin' wheels dog wheelchair you can give your dog the exercise it needs to live a happy, healthy, active life. We find dogs adjust so easily to using these wheelchairs, they are off exploring in no time.
Can my dog go to the toilet when they're in their wheelchair?
When the wheelchair is fully set up and the dog is used to walking in it, the dog will learn to toilet naturally standing up. The most important thing you can do it to reassure them that it's okay the first time that they toilet in the wheelchair so that it's a positive experience for them. Please see the video below of a dog toileting in the wheelchair.
