A Wheelchair for Puppies and Dogs

The most revolutionary aspect of the Walkin' Wheels dog wheelchair is that unlike traditional, custom made dog carts, it is fully adjustable in length, width and height. Naturally, this level of adjustment ensures a perfect fit for any size dog. And dog owners are no longer burdened with complicated measurements and having to wait several days or even several weeks for a custom mobility solution for their best friends.

These technical details certainly provide provide an accurate description of this patented dog wheelchair that is transforming mobility for handicapped pets. In simpler terms, however, perhaps the best way to describe the Walkin' Wheels dog wheelchair is that it is the only dog wheelchair that fits both puppies and dogs.

Dog wheelchairs are still primarily used later in a dog's life to address conditions of aging or as he or she recovers from an injury or surgical procedure. More often, and especially with the advent of the fully adjustable dog wheelchair, these types of mobility aids are being used to assist a dog throughout its entire lifespan.

Such is the case with a recent customer who visited HandicappedPets.com in search of a mobility solution for his 12-week old Labrador retriever whose rear legs required amputation because the mother dog accidentally crushed the puppy's rear legs shortly after he was born. This dog owner was relieved to learn that there was a fully adjustable dog wheelchair that could accommodate this puppy's growth into adulthood.

This puppy named Dex (pictured here with his mother Paige) is now 5 months old, and he is actively engaged in retriever training in the hopes that he can one day follow in the footsteps of his mother. We look forward to watching Dex on his journey with the Walkin' Wheels dog wheelchair. He is fast becoming a favorite on You Tube. Be sure to check out one of his training videos here. We look forward to sharing more videos with you as Dex continues to grow with his adjustable dog wheelchair.
