Walkin' Wheels Wheelchair FAQ's
“Can my Pet Pee and Poop in the Wheelchair?”
Yes, that’s the point of the dog wheelchair — to help your dog get the exercise he needs and do his business.
“Can my dog sit in a wheelchair?“
No. The Walkin' Wheels chair is designed NEVER to collapse on the dog’s leg or spine. Walkin" Wheels have gone to great lengths to be sure of it. The chairs are designed with the help of veterinarians and rehabilitation specialists to hold the dog up, keeping the spine and legs in the optimal position for safety and healing.
What’s more, the purpose of the chair is to give the dog exercise and the freedom to go outside and do his business. When the dog is tired, you should never leave him in the chair.
The reviews of the experimental sit-down spring-loaded style have not been positive. Although Walkin' Wheels have done a great deal of research, they have not found a safe way for a chair to collapse on a dog.
“Can my dog lie down in the wheelchair?”
No, your dog will not be able to lie down in a quad (full support/4-wheel) wheelchair.
“Can my Pet Use his/her Rear Legs in the Wheelchair?”
Yes, we encourage your dog to use his/her rear legs to maintain muscle mass and to get exercise. If the rear legs are paralyzed, then the stirrups will keep their legs from dragging.
“How soon will I get my wheelchair?“
Shipping time can range from three to five business days. Express shipping options are also available.
“Will this wheelchair rehabilitate my dog?“
We have seen varying degrees of recovery with dogs using the wheelchair. Some dogs have been able to improve so much that they no longer need the wheelchair. Every dog and disability is unique. While your dog is in the wheelchair, he or she is getting physical exercise, which can improve both physical and mental health.
“What is the return policy?“
It is our intention that every Walkin’ Wheels user be happy with their wheelchair. If you experience problems, please contact us. Often we can help with a simple adjustment. If you feel the wheelchair is not for you, you can return it within 14 days of receipt. Please read our return policy.
"What is the difference between foam wheels and air tires?"
Foam wheels are great for all terrains. They feature a dense foam interior with an outer rubber layer. These wheels will not puncture, wear extremely well, and are easy to clean.
Air tires are for very active dogs that like to go hiking on rough surfaces. These tires are like mountain bike tires. They have a nice deep tread and a replaceable inner tube (will need to be filled with air occasionally). There is an additional cost of £60.00 for the set.
