Canine Rehab and Walkin' Wheels Dog Wheelchairs

Recently, we have had several reminders of just how important the Walkin' Wheels dog wheelchair can be when used in conjunction with canine rehabilitative therapy. The Walkin' Wheels dog wheelchair is obviously helpful for providing pet owners the opportunity to keep their dogs mobile while pursuing rehabilitative treatments that will hopefully enable their dogs to walk on their own again.

This is especially important for owners of larger dogs who are simply too heavy to lift, carry or walk with a sling in between rehab appointments.  These pet owners need to keep their companions mobile and able to safely get exercise and go outside for bathroom breaks.  The Walkin' Wheels dog wheelchair is the ideal product for this purpose.

In addition to assisting pet owners, the Walkin' Wheels dog wheelchair can also be used as a rehabilitative tool.  Several canine rehabilitative practitioners are even using the Walkin' Wheels as a supportive device in the underwater treadmill.  The Walkin' Wheels dog wheelchair is also fully adjustable in height, length and width and does not require complex measurements or waiting for the wheelchair to be custom built.

For these reasons, many rehab practitioners opt for purchasing the Walkin' Wheels for Professional Use. This professional package includes the Walkin' Wheels Mini as well as our Medium and Large frames and a set of interchangeable wheel kits.  Rehab professionals are able to select and adjust the correct size Walkin' Wheels dog wheelchair for their clients in a matter of minutes.  The Walkin' Wheels dog wheelchair can then be rented for temporary use or sold to clients who require it for longer term or permanent use.

Yesterday, we received this wonderful video from our customer Jason Parker whose dog Gunnar has been using the Walkin' Wheels dog wheelchair during the last several months of canine rehab.  Jason wrote to us, "If it wasn't for his chair, I believe he would have just given up - thank you for a great product!"
