Pets are our best friends and will always be there to keep you company, especially when you are alone. You love to see them lively and comfortable around you.
Unfortunately, not all dogs have working, strong legs. It can feel terrible seeing your pup struggle with mobility troubles. Their discomfort breaks your heart and you strongly want to help them. When they are going through these difficult challenges, you want to relieve them of their misery and pain by lifting them up.
Thankfully, just like we humans may need a wheelchair to get around, there are wheelchair for dogs! These mobility devices can be a great option if your dog struggles to move freely or without pain.
“When recovering from a serious injury, a wheelchair can be a helpful therapeutic tool. A wheelchair can help support some of your dog’s weight, letting them build muscle more slowly and provide much needed balance if they’ve suffered a leg injury and are having trouble moving around. A wheelchair also can help your dog get the exercise they’re craving and make it easier to keep them resting during longer convalescences.”
Dr. Michele King, DVM
We’ve saved you the headache of going through hundreds of products by reviewing the top 8 best dog wheelchairs – for both small and large dogs. We also included a guide that highlights different features of each option and can also help you make the best decision depending on your preference.
Why a dog wheelchair is right for you
While dog wheelchairs are growing in popularity, many dog owners might not know a wheelchair is the best choice for their pet. Dog wheelchairs are designed with a singular purpose: To give your dog the ability to move freely again.
What makes dog wheelchairs such a fantastic option, and why they might be right for you, is they support dogs with a wide range of mobility issues. If your dog struggles walking, tires quickly, or seems to be in pain, a wheelchair provides just the right amount of support and stability.
Dog wheelchairs can help your dog with:
- Arthritic pain
- Hip Dysplasia
- Surgery/procedure recovery
Also, dog wheelchairs are ideal for older dogs who might need a little extra help with their balance. A dog wheelchair is right for you if your pup needs support with mobility or stability.

Safety tips for dog wheelchairs
Our top picks
We looked at dozens (and dozens!) of dog wheelchairs, and if you have an averaged sized dogs with no specific needs (see more specific options, below), this is the dog wheelchair for you:
Walkin’ Wheels Dog Wheelchair
Best for most dogs
Adjustable so it fits most mid-sized dogs perfectly, this is our top overall pick for a few reasons: it folds flat for storage, is made of the exact right materials, and is vet-tested and approved.
Walkin’ Pets was the first company to manufacture adjustable wheelchairs for pets and their expertise shines through. Their wheelchairs are available in the widest range of sizes to fit all dog breeds. Each model is grouped by weight and Walkin’ Pets offers a variety of sizing options based on the length of your dog’s legs for each model. Final adjustments can be made to the height, length, and width of the wheelchair to find the perfect fit for your dog.
We loved that the Walkin’ Pets can fold flat for storage or transport without any disassembly and all parts are safe to wash, including the wheels. This model also has great durability for all kinds of terrain and all parts are waterproof.
- Available in plenty of size and fit options
- Backed by one of the top manufacturers of dog wheelchairs
- Easy to collapse and store
- Price is almost as high as a custom-fitted chair
K9 Carts Rear-Leg Wheelchair
Best custom-fit choice
Made in the USA and fitted based on your pet’s measurements, this is your best choice if other wheelchairs just haven’t worked but it’s pricier and we’d really only recommend it for dogs who’ll need a wheelchair indefinitely.
Custom-fitted wheelchairs used to be something you had to order through your vet but now you can easily find them online. We loved the light design of the K9 Carts Rear-Leg wheelchair and think it’d be great for any dog using a wheelchair long term. The only reason they aren’t our top recommendation is that you’ll need to take accurate measurements, something you might want to leave to an expert who’s fitted wheelchairs before like your veterinarian.
K9 Carts has been manufacturing pet wheelchairs for over 50 years and is one of the top names in the business. Where they really stand apart is that each wheelchair is built based on your pet’s measurements, providing the exact level of support and comfort your dog needs. K9 Carts is also great about answering questions and collecting all the details they need to make sure your dog’s wheelchair is sized correctly.
- Multiple sizes to fit any dog and custom fitted before final adjustments
- Made in the USA
- Very lightweight compared to cheaper options
- Requires you to take exact measurements
- Pricier than most other wheelchairs
HiHydro Pet Wheelchair
An all-around budget pick
This model comes in sizes for any dog and is a great budget choice, but weighs a bit more because of the stainless steel construction.
Unlike our other picks, the HiHydro wheelchair is made of stainless steel. Although stainless steel sounds like a better material, it’s actually less ideal for a wheelchair. While it can make a wheelchair more durable, it does add more weight and any gains in durability will be relatively minor and any wheelchair is only as strong as its weakest piece.
We have doubts about how the wheels, harness, and leg straps will hold up, even if the steel frame seems like it could be more durable than our other picks.
- Stainless steel parts are more durable and less prone to bending
- Budget-friendly price
- Plenty of sizing options
- Heavier than aluminum wheelchairs
- Manufacturer isn’t as well known as other picks
Best picks for larger dogs
Walkin’ Wheels Dog Wheelchair – for Large Dogs 70-180 Pounds
Best for big dogs
Our favorite model sized up to fit even the biggest dogs, this model offers high durability and better support that heavier dogs need.
Larger dogs have different needs than smaller dogs besides just a bigger chair. Heavier dogs carry their weight in different places, walk differently, and need more support for their larger back. Thankfully, Walkin’ Wheels has a great scaled up pick for even the biggest pups, featuring heftier wheels and a sturdier frame that offers relieves more spinal pressure on larger dogs.
For heavier dogs who aren’t quite this large, check out this mid-range pick for 50-69 pound dogs. This is perfect for dogs who need either a higher or sturdier frame and don’t quite fit into either the ‘large’ or ‘medium’ categories and is especially good for taller athletic breeds who are fairly light for their size.
- Lightweight and adjustable
- Extremely durable
- Easy to fold flat
- Sizing can get difficult in higher weight ranges
Best Friend Mobility Large Dog Wheelchair
Best budget choice for big dogs
At around half the cost of our last pick, this is a really good option for the price. With a lightweight adjustable aluminum frame and galvanized hardware (only 2 bolts required), this model won’t rust. It’s also got deluxe neoprene front and rear harness for complete comfort — proven by testing by a K9 Orthopedic surgeon.
We like the price and easy assembly of our next pick, but we have long term concerns over how it will hold up to use by larger dogs. The aluminum tubing is much thinner than our preferred pick, but we think this is okay if you just need a wheelchair while your dog is recovering from an injury or surgery and don’t expect to put it to heavy use.
- Simple to assemble
- It can be folded flat
- Can be adjusted easily
- Frame seems a bit light for large dogs
Best picks for small dogs
Here are our top picks for chairs for smaller breeds like Dachshunds, pugs, and Frenchies.
Walkin’ Wheels Dog Wheelchair – for Small Dogs
Best budget pick for small dogs
From the same maker of our top pick for large dogs and our favorite overall, this has many of the same advantages but is simply scaled down for smaller dogs.
Our pick for small dogs should cover most breeds but is specifically meant for dogs 11-25 pounds. It’s available in the same sub-models for varying leg heights and weights so you can dial in the perfect fit for your dog. If your dog is less than 10 pounds you’ll want to consider the Walkin’ Wheels for toy breeds model instead.
- Great sizing and adjustments to fit any dog
- Lightweight construction make it easy for small dogs to use
- Price is similar to larger wheelchair models
HobeyHove Adjustable Dog Cart
Best budget choice for small dogs
A bit cheaper, this fully adjustable wheelchair fits most smaller dogs between 6-45 pounds.
While not quite as durable as our top pick, this wheelchair offers most of the same benefits. While most manufacturers offer pre-fitted wheelchairs that fit a narrow range of height and weight, this model is meant to fit a wider range of dogs. Taking the fully adjustable approach means you’re less likely to have sizing issues as long as your dog is within the height and hip range for this wheelchair.
- Budget-friendly price
- Fully adjustable to fit a range of dogs
- Veterinarian approved
- Lightweight for smaller dogs
- One-size-fits-all approach may not work for all dogs
S-easy Pet Wheelchair
Best for long-bodied dogs
This model is made for breeds like Corgis, Dacshunds, and Basset Hounds to accomodate their longer bodies and shorter legs and provide the right level of support.
While a traditional dog wheelchair might work, most short-legged breeds will need something with a more precise fit. This model also includes additional support straps needed to help relieve stress on long-bodied dogs. However, one expert noted that for most dog wheelchairs, it’s possible to adjust a medium-sized chair of any brand to fit long-bodied breeds.
- Offers specific adjustments for long-bodied dog breeds
- Easy assembly goes together or breaks down quickly
- Budget-friendly price
- Difficult to make initial adjustments
What is the purpose of a dog wheelchair?
The main purpose of a dog wheelchair is to give a hurt, injured pup their mobility back. However, using a wheelchair can also prevent your dog from hurting itself further by trying to move while injured.
If you’re interested in finding out if a wheelchair is the best option for your dog, the first step is to visit your vet.
“It’s always safest to have a veterinarian evaluate your dog’s health first – a wheelchair may not be the best solution for your dog and could make some conditions worse. Generally, dog wheelchairs require your dog to be fit and healthy besides their mobility issue. This is because it takes quite a bit of effort for your dog to move themselves in the wheelchair and the wheelchair will only help take weight off your dog’s rear legs. It’s important to recognize that a wheelchair will only help if used in conjunction with everything else recommended by your vet.”
Dr. Michele King, DVM
Wheelchairs help paralyzed dogs regain mobility
For some pups with complete mobility loss in their rear legs, a wheelchair can be the perfect fit to help them live normally. Simply having their rear legs off the ground and their weight supported will let your dog compensate with their front legs and in many cases they can be just as fast as they would be on all four paws.
While your dog can’t use a wheelchair 24/7, it can be the key to getting them out on walks, wander around the house or yard, and just generally feel like a dog. In cases where your dog will be using a wheelchair indefinitely, we highly recommend going with our custom fit pick to ensure long-term comfort.
Using wheels can help with hip dysplasia and muscular dystrophy
Wheels can greatly reduce the stress movement puts on your dog and help them recover lost mobility and exercise more frequently by providing support for balance and walking.
If your dog is in the earlier stages of dealing with rear hip dysplasia or muscular dystrophy, a wheelchair can go a long way in relieving some of the stress that moving around puts on your dog. It’s important however, to recognize that a wheelchair will only help if used in conjunction with everything else recommended by your vet.
Wheelchairs can also prevent further injury and using a dog wheelchair correctly can extend your dog’s mobility and help slow any further damage to their joints.
A wheelchair can help your dog recover better from an injury
If your dog has recently had surgery or an injury that affects their ability to walk, you’ll usually want to give them as much complete rest as possible until they’ve healed to prevent further injury. Dogs aren’t always great at sitting still, but they also aren’t great at knowing their limits so you’ll have to be as careful as possible and follow any recommendations by your vet if you want them to heal quickly.
Moving too much too early or putting additional stress on their body by teaching them to use a wheelchair can put their recovery in jeopardy and require even more bedrest, so it’s best to take things slow.
For longer recovery times though, a wheelchair can be an essential therapeutic tool. A wheelchair can help support some of your dog’s weight, letting them build muscle more slowly and provide much needed balance if they’ve suffered a leg injury and are having trouble moving around. A wheelchair also can help your dog get the exercise they’re craving and make it easier to keep them resting during longer convalescences.
Can you build your own dog wheelchair? Should you?
Dog wheelchairs look surprisingly simple. They’re basically just a frame with two wheels and a harness and although it may be tempting to try to build one yourself, we don’t recommend it. While some folks may have the tools and talent needed to build a functional wheelchair, we think most people should leave it to the experts.
Most importantly, you want your dog’s wheelchair to be safe. On a good wheelchair everything from the geometry of the frame and size of the wheels to the padding on the harness is designed to prevent breaking and prevent injury. Furthermore, all of our picks have been evaluated by veterinarians to work as advertised and to provide a proper level of support. Besides just the structure itself, you need to be able to make adjustments to any wheelchair for your dog’s needs and comfort, something much harder to do if you choose to build a wheelchair yourself.
Our complete review methodology
There are dozens and dozens of models of wheelchairs for your dog available right now and not all of them are built equally, no matter how similar the designs are.
We combed through the most popular picks out there and compared reviews, expert recommendations, and veterinarian endorsements to find the best and safest models. We further pared down our list by comparing prices, features, and brand reputations before settling on the wheelchairs we would feel comfortable having our own dogs use.
Three Top Things To Know Before Buying A Wheelchair
- Any dog wheelchair you buy should be veterinarian designed, approved, and recommended.
- Look for the lightest wheelchair that can safely support your dog’s weight.
- Solid construction is key. While you want a wheelchair to be easy to assemble, a sturdy design will keep your pet comfortable and safe for years to come.
Dog wheelchairs are a pricey item. While budget models exist, we wouldn’t recommend any budget model for long-term or lifetime users purely because any wheelchair is only as good as it’s weakest piece. We compared different frame types, assembly instructions, wheel sizes, and construction materials to determine what we think is the safest and most durable design of wheelchair and we’d stand by our top picks.
It’s also important to remember while a wheelchair might work well for one dog, it might not work for another.
“Different dogs need different wheelchairs. Larger dogs have different needs than smaller dogs besides just a bigger chair. Heavier dogs carry their weight in different places, walk differently, and need more support for their larger back. Long dogs with short legs will need something with a more precise fit. It is important that your dog not spend too much time in the wheelchair, and frequent breaks are recommended. Some dogs will adjust quickly, while others may never get used to the wheelchair. Patience and kindness is key.”
Dr. Michele King, DVM
Because of the varying needs of different dogs, we tried to offer a wide variety of options, especially for different sized dogs.
Budget wheelchairs may compromise on durability, but they can still be a great tool for short-term use like helping your dog recover from an injury or surgery or to test if a wheelchair would help your dog before committing to a pricier model.
Our top picks in each category are collapsible, allowing you to store them when not in use and easy to bring along in the car. We also looked for all models to be washable and easy to clean after prolonged use. While we wanted to make sure each of our picks used quality, hard rubber wheels to hold up to different terrain we also looked at how these wheels are attached to the frame.
We paid special attention to any weaknesses such as flimsy screws, uncomfortable harnesses, and any places we thought the wheelchairs might break and ruled out options we didn’t think were safe.
Safety tips for dog wheelchairs
It’s important to take extra care while your dog is in their wheelchair, especially when they first learn how to use it. Take extra time to ensure that your dog’s wheelchair is adjusted correctly and that there’s no hazards the wheelchair can get stuck on.
- Check harness to ensure your pup is in a natural position while in the wheelchair with their rear body slightly lifted above normal to reduce weight on rear legs.
- If your dog can’t use their rear legs at all, use the included leg slings
- Stay near your pet at all times while they’re in their wheelchair. The back wheels especially can catch on bushes, furniture, and doorways
- Don’t let your pet stay in the cart for long periods. Allow them take a break and lay down to rest when possible.

I’ve found the cutest thing in the world for my cutest corgi! K9 Carts Rear Support Wheelchair is soo good and comfortable for him, it’s a lifesaver for me and my dog. I advice you to watch an instruction video first, and then you won’t have any problems. I’m glad I bought it, this is the one to purchase.
Chase V. says
The quality of The Pets and Wheels Dog Wheelchair is good really. I’ve ordered a gold one for my dog to make his life more luxurious in a way that I can. It wasn’t hard to adjust and to use it, I don’t see any reason not to buy it. Maybe my dog will be tired of gold, I will buy a green one then. Have fun!
Unfortunately, these wheelchairs don’t work with all dogs. One of my dogs couldn’t adjust to the cart, she was just afraid of it and her legs were too weak. But another dog likes it very much and uses it without any problems. I hope you’ll find a suitable cart and your dog won’t reject it, cause it’s a really helpful thing.
Charlotte P. says
Last year our dog started to age much faster and her legs aren’t so active anymore. Our vet helped us to find a suitable wheelchair and after a year of using I can say that it’s a lifesaver for your pet. She is still a happy dog, she can run and play with other dogs, however, more slowly but without problems. Recommend to everybody who wants to make your pet’s life brighter.
I have a problem with my dog, her legs aren’t so active anymore, and she has big troubles with the back. I needed to buy something urgently but didn’t have enough money. That’s why now she’s using The Newlife Mobility Adjustable Dog Wheelchair. It’s quite comfortable for its money, but I’m searching for something else and your guide is very helpful. Thanks.
the best dog owner says
It doesn’t really matter what is written in all guides and reviews, because you may have a lot of problems with every wheelchair you buy. We have tried about four different, and only the last one was comfortable for my dog. Use such guides like a direction, but not as a call to action.
It’s very sad when your pet is ill and as a conscequence losing some ability. Our dog can’t walk as good as earlier, but she’s a strong girl! We’ve bought a new wheelchair for her and it changed everything. She’s walking more confidently and looks just like everything is ok. So proud of her.
I’ve found the best wheelchair for my 12-year-old Shepherd. Two years ago I decided to try Walkin’ Wheels For Large Dogs 70-180 LBS and have no regrets about it now. My dog became more active, she learned how to use a wheelchair and I can’t be happier when my dog can walk almost as she could earlier. Recommend to everyone!
When I was choosing a wheelchair, I didn’t think about going to such websites and reading guides, I just asked my vet. But now I’ve stumbled across this page and I wish I could read it earlier, so useful and understandable. Thank you!
It’s very hard to get over all things that happen to my dog, he can’t control his legs as he used to. We’ve tried a lot of different wheelchairs, but our dog doesn’t want to wear it. However, it helps him to walk without problems, it’s a big stress for everybody to put the wheelchair on him.
Our family was completely confused when all the troubles started to happen with our dog. But we needed to react very fast, to find any solution to make her life easier. We’ve found a good wheelchair which is exactly what our dog needs, she feels much better walking in it. Recommend you to pay attention to Walkin’ Wheels Chair when you’ll be choosing.
I’ve seen this comment before making an order and want to say a big thank to you! It’s really a great product which I hope will make us to overcome all the issues.
Nick K. says
If your dog is small as mine, and you can’t find any wheelchair comfortable for the pet, I personally recommend paying attention to The Huggiecart Extra Small. It didn’t take long for the dog to get used to it, cause it’s so light and easy to adjust.
If you’re in search of a good wheelchair, which can make your dog’s life better but not vaise versa, just ask your vet really. I read all the websites, forums and comments, and then go to my vet and ask which one is the best. It’ll be better than just waste all money on something that won’t be suitable for your dog.
I thank every creator of wheelchairs cause it’s a thing that made my dog’s life a lot brighter. We thought she couldn’t recover but now everything is good, I can’t stop watching my dog makes some new steps using this thing.
Some people say a wheelchair is a thing that can radically change the quality of your dog’s life. I absolutely agree with them, especially if we’re talking about The Walkin’ Wheels Extra Small wheelchair. This device keeps my dog walking and running like a puppy with a good health. I find it very easy to adjust and don’t see any difficulties in using. The best variant (I’ve tried 2 other) for a small dog or cat.
Thank inventors of wheelchairs! I can’t imagine how many dogs and their owners they have made happy and gave more time for smiling and playing. I’ve bought this thing a year ago and now want to find something new, your guide is very helpful.
My little dog needed a suitable wheelchair and the only variant our vet recommended us was The Huggiecart. Now I know that I could buy something else, but I’m pleased with this one. We’ve been using this wheelchair for two years and it didn’t disappoint us.
I wanted to leave a comment about this wheelchair too, but you was the first. It’s really a good option. The thing I like in this wheelchair is the quality of materials.
Like your guide best of all for all these videos and understandable pros and cons. Just came across this page while trying to find anything suitable for my dog. I think I should consult my vet, but I’ll recommend all wheelchairs you mentioned. Thanks!
My vet said that The Pets and Wheels Dog Wheelchair is one of the best wheelchairs and every dog owner should pay attention to it while choosing. I didn’t understand why until I tried this wheelchair on my dog. It’s always pleasant to have a choice in colors however it doesn’t mean anything to my dog. But still! Very good variant.
I also like this product for a variety of colors. This little detail makes unpleasant situations less problematic.
I don’t know why but I’ve bought this wheelchair only because of colors variety. Maybe it wasn’t wise, but it’s a good variant really. ANd also very durable.
My dog has become old so fast! I can’t understand why time passes by like that, I couldn’t think I would be searching for a wheelchair for him. It’s so sad.. I hope I’ll find something good, which can change the quality of my pet’s life.
Look at this cute Walkin’ Wheels For Small Dogs wheelchair! When I saw it I decided it should be mine. It’s not only beautiful and small like a toy but its features are awesome. It was very easy to adjust to my dog and now I see how glad he is running with this thing. Recommend to every owner of a small pet!
My recommendation for every dog owner is – learn how to measure your pet! It’s so funny and sad at the same time. We wanted to order a wheelchair on the internet, measured our dog, decided what wheelchair we would buy, ordered it, and when it was delivered we couldn’t attach it to our dog. So now we try to sell it and to buy another.
I dreamt about something light and beautiful and found The Walkin’ Wheels Extra Small Dog Wheelchair. Don’t know what to say except for that it’s an ideal wheelchair for my dog, there are no unpleasant situations with toilet, running and moving are also quite comfortable for my pet as I see.
We’ve been using the same wheelchair for the previous four months and it’s really a great option.
I am a fan of this wheelchair too! My dog has been using it for a half of the year and became a better runner. Recommend to every dog owner.
I’ll join the fans of this wheelchair as it’s really the best one in my and my dog’s life. We’ve tried a few of them before, but I’ve never seen such a good combination of quality, price, and durability.
I was so happy when saw that our dog showed minimal resistance to the wheelchair we bought for him. Moreover, he enjoyed using it after a few hours of walking with this new equipment. I hope everything will be the same and we won’t have to buy anything one more time.
I had terrible experience using a new wheelchair. After a couple of weeks since I bought it, the wheelchair broke, its plastic details just fall on my dog’s face. So, sometimes it’s better to choose the more expensive option.
The Walkin’ Wheels For Small Dogs is one of the best purchases I made! My dog lost the use of her legs and we bought this wheelchair until we waited for the operation. Now she doesn’t use it and we sold it to our neighbor, which dog has the same problem. So this wheelchair helped two dogs already!
Barbara K. says
Please, be very attentive when choosing a wheelchair, pay a lot attention to the size not to be disappointed when you’ll get the order. Cause I was very tired that day when I made an order so finally I got a small wheelchair which doesn’t suit my dog anyway.
I couldn’t choose the wheelchair by myself so I asked my vet. Her variants were absolutely different in price and brands (which I don’t remember) and we took the cheapest one. It’s very good and it’s still working for my dog.
The best wheelchair is the one which is comfortable for your dog. Our vet told us that we should have bought the one but our dog didn’t like it so we bought the first we saw and now the dog is pleased and happy.
Our friends have The Walkin’ Wheels Extra Small Dog Wheelchair for their toy puppies. They advised it to us but, unfortunately, our dog hates this thing. Don’t know what to do and which wheelchair to choose instead of this because we were so sure that it’s the best one.
There is no perfectly suitable wheelchair for my dog! I’ve spent a lot of time searching for it but there’s no result. My dog hates all of them.
The Newlife Mobility Adjustable Dog Wheelchair has changed my pet’s life completely. After three different wheelchairs, we’ve finally found this one and now recommend it to everyone. My god has problems with back legs and after using this wheelchair it seems like a new life started.
Mason K. says
The K9 Carts Rear Support Wheelchair is a lifesaver for me and my injured dog. This wheelchair gives us an opportunity to live with our dog as we were leaving before, we walk and smile. Recommend it to everyone who can’t make a choice, the quality is great, it costs its money.
I don’t know how we lived without a wheelchair before! It solves so many problems at once but the most important is that this thing makes my dog feel happier.
The Walkin’ Wheels Extra Small Dog Wheelchair is the best variant for my dog. Unfortunately, small cuties have problems too but this thing helps us to get over them.
We like this wheelchair too! I was glad to see a comment about it here. Recommend to everyone!
We’ve bought just a simple wheelchair which was offered by our vet. I don’t even know its brand but it works well.
My personal favorite is Walkin’ Wheels For Small Dogs. I won’t say much, just read about it and pay attention to comments. Many people are happy to use it so I’m in their team!
We were very skeptical whether a wheelchair could help our dog but now I’m glad we’ve bought it. This thing has given back an ability to run and enjoy life to my dog.
We have looked through the different options for small dogs but Best Friend Mobility Extra Small seems to be the best one. I hope It’ll be the same as in the pictures, in a few weeks it’ll be delivered. Wish me and my dog luck!
Wheelchair saves our lives every day. I can’t be happier when I see how much my dog likes it. Hope, that our problem won’t get worse and we’ll cope with all the difficulties.
I know how hard it is to find the best option among all the wheelchairs for dogs represented on the market. That’s why I asked our vet for advice and got the best recommendation. So, ask a professional if you can’t make a decision.
Jay Y. says
And which wheelchair your vet recommended you?
We’ve bought the Best Friend Mobility wheelchair because of the dog’s size. Our vet told us it was the best variant and we relied on her opinion. Can’t say anything bad about it.
There’s no option suitable for everyone, choosing a good wheelchair is a difficult task. But maybe my recommendation will help somehow. I use Newlife Mobility Adjustable which is represented on this page and can’t say anything bad about it. I like that it’s easy to use this wheelchair in a shower.
Ivory P. says
I saw your comment when was choosing between 2 options and listened to your opinion. Thanks so much as this wheelchair works great! I don’t have any regrets about preferring it to the other one.
I think that dog wheelchairs should be light and easy to assemble, that’s why I bought Huggiecart Extra Small. This product changed our life a lot and now I recommend everyone to buy it. Especially, if you don’t want to spend a lot.
When I bought a new wheelchair the first time assembly was quite hard. I had to ask my neighbor for help as I couldn’t do that myself. I hope it’s now the best thing about wheelchairs as there are people who live alone and they don’t have an opportunity to ask for help. It was a little bit confusing.
Walkin’ Wheels For Small Dogs is the best wheelchair my god has ever used. I can’t be sure he’s surprised with its quality as I am, but I see how my dog runs without any problems.
If your puppy has some problems with back or legs, buy Best Friend Mobility Extra Small. It’s the best wheelchair for small dogs, my vet said it. We’ve been using it for a couple of months and already see how it helps our dog with the usual things.
Dog wheelchairs are so helpful. Of course, I hope that you won’t have to face this hard process of choosing and it’ll be great if your dog will never have any problems with back or legs. But now I spend hours and hours looking through different websites.
The main thing I like about Walkin’ Wheels For Large Dogs 70-180 LBS is that my dog can use the bathroom while wearing this wheelchair. It solves a lot of problems that we faced using previous options.
I like Walkin’ Wheels For Large Dogs 70-180 LBS just because I even can train my dog while he’s wearing it. So, it’s not a problematic process but our time shared only together.
K9 Carts Wheelchair is the best wheelchair I’ve ever had (and I had more than 5 of them as I live with dogs for my whole life). So. you should really try it to understand why I like this wheelchair so much.
I hope you’ll never search for a wheelchair as it’s not the best period in life when you need such equipment. Wish health and well-being to all your pets.
I like that my dog can use the bathroom while she’s wearing K9 Carts Rear Support Wheelchair. It’s a great solution which saves us a lot of time. So, I have a recommendation for every dog owner.
I was forced to buy such a thing after my dog was bitten by a tick and his legs refused. Walkin’ Wheels stroller provided us normal life. Of course, the pet had to get used to the new unit, but now he is happy.
It depends on many factors, whether the model is suitable for your pet or not, but I chose The Newlife Mobility Adjustable Dog Wheelchair for my pet. it’s not so simple to get used to the device, but the main problem is solved, and my pet can walk and run again! He could become healthy again just in two months.
Last year, my restless dog chased a bicycle, as a result, the cyclist fell, and the bicycle injured my pet’s hind leg. The paw hurt for a long time until we bought The Best Friend Mobility Dog Wheelchair. After a couple of weeks, my naughty puppy could run after bicycles again)
We have 13 year old Dog. It is more comfortable for her and it is easier to get her into the wheelchair too. We are happy to say she took to this new mobility from the beginning. Walkin’ Wheels is real helper to her
We were VERY skeptical that our 70 lb female German Shepherd would be any bit interested in a wheelchair. But she is happy. We were crying when she could stand up again!
I had bought another brand 6 mos. ago, however it broke and never fit Maggie, my 11 year old Boxer. This Walkin Wheels is perfect! She can move by herself for the first time in 8 months.
After our 12+ collie cross was diagnosed with cancer in her right hind knee she was really struggling with balance & her walks became shorter & shorter. But PLEASE don’t give up even if your pet seems to dislike the wheels – it’s been a godsend to us! Thank you, thank you Walkin’ Wheels!
I agree with the choice of the editors. I strengthened the wheels a little, but overall the device is durable and mobile.
These strollers greatly simplify the life of even the owner. And I’m not talking about the fact that they also extend this life.
Walkin’ Wheels have literally changed my French Bulldogs life so much. She moves around easily and very quickly, I’m struggling to keep up with her already and she’s only used it 3 times.
My 13 year old GSD has arthritis and is very weak in her back legs, she could only walk for 10 minutes without collapsing so I thought I would give a set of wheels a try and I’m glad I did, she took to Extra Small Dog wheelchairs straight away and looks happy to be able to walk again with confidence and independence.
Walkin’ Wheels is a Great product! Kahlua can now walk around the house with no problem. She sometimes bumps into things but she is learning how not to.
This is the best post I had ever seen before about the dog wheelchair
I had another brand dog wheelchair to recommend, the vendor name is dogpetsmart.com
They provide the high-quality dog wheelchair but the price quite fair.
