Frame:

The Frame is powder-coated aluminum in blue, pink, or camo. It will not bend, break, or rust. The molded plastic knuckles attach the frame to the legs; 360 degrees of ‘teeth’ hold the knuckle in place. On the side of the knuckle, a spring-loaded turning cap allows you to loosen the knuckle and swivel the legs up or down.

Width Connectors: (2 connectors with regular frame)

The width connector connects the left and right side of the frame together. If the width of your dog is 5- 9.5 inches, you will use the smaller width connector; 9-13.5 inches will need the longer connector.

Length Extenders: (2 extender sets with regular frame)

The adjustable length extenders connect the front harness in place with the wheelchair. There are two different sizes. If the dog is 9-19 inches, the smaller extenders are used. The small extenders will already be attached to the wheelchair. If the animal’s length is 18-25 inches, the larger extenders are needed. Length is determined by back of front leg to back of rear leg.

The Front Harness:

The dog’s head goes between the blue and black straps. The red strap goes under the dog’s front legs and clips on the side of the harness. The shoulder pads are made of neoprene and keep the straps and buckles from causing discomfort for the dog. Neoprene comfort sleeves wrap around the straps for the dog’s comfort. Comfort sleeves can be cut in half if they are too long.

Handles:

A pair of handles is included with every wheelchair. You can attach them to the leg rings (when the dog is not in the wheelchair) and use the leg rings as a lifting device. The size of the adjustable handles range from 4.5-27 inches.

Leg Rings:

The dog’s hindquarters are held in place by the leg rings, or our rear harness support system. The leg rings can also be used as a lifting harness when out of the wheelchair; the excess strapping can be touch-fastened together to make handles on each side.

Struts & Foam Wheels:

Depending on your pet’s fold of flank measurement, you will receive a set of wheels attached to struts. Struts snap into the leg of the wheelchair frame and adjust to the height needed. Struts are adjustable 6”, 9”, 12”, & 15”.

Belly Belt:

The Belly Belt will help support your dog’s back. It is not always necessary to use the belly belt, but is highly recommended for dogs with a long back, overweight or elderly dogs, dogs with curvature of the spine, and dogs with disc problems.

Stirrups:

Stirrups are used to hold the dog’s legs off the ground so they don’t drag due to paralysis, knuckling under, or foot injuries. The adjustable stirrups are positioned to hold the foot up at the hock. If your dog doesn’t need them, the stirrups may be removed from the wheelchair.

The Manual & DVD:

The manual and DVD give instructions and tips on assembling and using the Walkin’ Wheels. Please watch the DVD before setting up the wheelchair to give you a full understanding of how it works. 

Tool Kit:

The tool kit comes in a plastic bag and includes and Allen wrench and set screws. The (optional) set screws may be used to tighten up the wheelchair frame and reduce flexibility, depending on your preference.

Tote Bag:

The tote bag is an ideal way to carry the folded wheelchair. Because of its unique design and compact size, the Walkin’ Wheels is easy to transport.

 

Rear Dog Wheel Chair Small – Sizer

1. Measure the fold of flank to the toe pad, ideally when your pet is laying down, as shown below. Do not pull the leg tight; leave some natural bend.
The Fold of the Flank (FOF) is a thin piece of skin that connects the dog’s upper rear leg to his body. Look at the webbing between your thumb and index finger. This skin is very similar to the fold of flank (FOF).

2. Enter the FOF measurement, your pet’s weight (this is essential to get the correct frame size!), and your pet’s breed/species into the Walkin’ Wheels Sizer. 
Sizer will give you the price and exact wheelchair configuration you need for your pet.
