Features of the Walkin’ Wheels Dog Wheelchair:
Can my dog poop and pee in the dog wheelchair?
Yes, dogs do their business standing up. The wheelchair is easy to clean if it gets soiled.
How do I measure my dog?
We will help you fit the wheelchair during your pet's physical rehabilitation evaluation. Call for an appointment today 480-285-9848.
Is "flexibility" important?
The Walkin' Wheels was originally designed to be flexible and move naturally with the dog. Some research shows that the rigidity of the custom wheelchairs might not be optimal. The flexibility feature is optional. Small screws can be tightened to stabilize the frame so that there is no "play" if desired.
How much does it cost?
Depending on your dog's specific measurements, wheelchair rental prices range from $45 a week (for small dogs like pugs and chihuahuas) to $65 a week (for larger dogs like german shepherds and great danes). Deposit is required for all rentals.
Help’em Up Harness®
The Help’em Up Harness is designed as a mobility aid. This unique harness has 2 conveniently placed handles so that you can safely give your dog a lift anytime, anywhere. It’s the perfect choice to help your dog get into the car, go up or down steps or ramps, recuperate from surgery, assist your dog in his or her physical rehabilitation program or help your weak dog in being more mobile. Ideal for dogs with:
The fully adjustable and well-padded harness is designed to be worn for long periods of time during the day. We recommend you remove it at night for your pet’s comfort and for routine cleaning. The harness is machine washable, then simply air dry. The 5 point adjustable strap system combined with air flow fabrics, fastex fasteners and perforated neoprene allow for a comfortable fit. By lifting your dog’s weight from below, under the chest and under the pelvis, you reduce strain on joints and avoid compressing internal organs.
Available in small, medium, large and extra large the Help’em Up Harness fits dogs from 10-170 pounds. The “Conventional” unit is the best fit for most dogs, offering the most pelvic support. It fits all females and most males. Some males require the “U-band” version which allows for pelvic support without hindering urination when the penis sits further back.
