Details

Our Haute Wheels Dog Wheelchair restores the freedom and mobility that a multitude of injuries, surgeries, conditions, and even the simple progress of advanced age may have taken from your dog. The wheelchair's seven selectable sizes accommodate everything from toy dog breeds to Newfoundlands - as well as cats, pigs, goats, and other four-legged companions that may need a little help getting around.

The resilient aluminum frames are easily adjusted to match your pet's unique needs.  The padded harnesses provide a comfortable fit that accommodates leashes during walks and can be removed from the frame when your pet needs to rest.

Care & Use

Care:

  • Harnesses and Belly Belt are machine washable
  • Periodically check the adjustment screws and tighten them as needed.
  • Wipe the frame and wheels with a towel as needed to remove dirt or water.

Use

  • Consult with your veterinarian to determine the best treatment plan.
  • Make your home pet wheelchair accessible by installing ramps throughout your home. Teach your pet to use the ramps even when they aren’t in their wheelchair to reduce joint strain. 
  • Always supervise your dog when they are using their wheelchair, even if they are an expert at getting around in it, to minimize the risk of them tipping over or getting stuck.
  • Wheelchairs should only be used for supervised activities, such as going for walks and playtime. 
  • We recommend providing a 15-minute break from wheelchair after each hour of use. Dogs should not sit or lay down while using the wheelchair.

 

FAQs

FAQs

Will my dog's wheelchair fit through doorways?

Yes, but it may take your dog time to learn how to navigate through the door frame while wearing the wheelchair. Observe and encourage your dog while they are mastering this skill.

Can my dog “do their business” while using their wheelchair?

Yes, your dog can pee and poop with minimal to no mess. The rear harness includes a reinforced channel to provide support and urinary direction for male dogs.

Can my dog sit or lay down in their wheelchair?

No, this wheelchair is for active use only. Be sure to provide your dog with a 15-minute break after approximately every hour of use.

Can my dog use their hind legs while in the wheelchair?

Yes, if your dog has movement in their hind legs then they should be left out of the foot straps. You can remove the foot straps from the frame if your dog won't be using them. If your dog's hind legs are paralyzed, use the foot straps to prevent injury.

How long will it take for my dog to get used to the wheelchair?

It depends on your dog. Some dogs will only take a few days, while others may require much longer. Patience, praise, and practice are crucial in helping your dog become comfortable with their wheelchair, treats may also help.

Can I leave my dog alone in their wheelchair?

No, never leave your dog unattended while using the wheelchair. They could potentially get caught on or trip over things, which might result in injury.

Will my dog be able to play with other dogs?

Absolutely! However, it may take other dogs time to get accustomed to your dog's wheelchair. Always observe your dog’s interactions with other dogs.

Can my dog use stairs while in their wheelchair?

No, your dog will not be able to safely ascend or descend stairs while in the wheelchair. Remove them from the wheelchair to assist them on the stairs.

Can my dog go into water, like pools, lakes, or streams while using the wheelchair?

No, the wheelchair is too heavy for your dog to swim with. Any currents could also cause your dog to tip over. Never let your dog enter a body of water while using the wheelchair.

Overall happy but have mixed feelings

My 22 lb Jack Russel Terrier experienced a knee injury so we've utilized the wheelchair for 6 weeks. Overall its beneficial and performed as expected.

Pros:
1. The chair is super light and easily customizable for fit.
2. It has definitely my dog recover from her knee injury.
3. After the initial learning curve, I'm able to prep my dog and get her into the wheelchair without additional assistance.

Cons:
1. The wheelchair tips easily! Once when running around the house she flipped the chair and became stuck, unable to flip herself & the chair upright. Many other times when moving around, it seemed possible to flip again, especially when outside in grassy/uneven areas. In my opinion the base needs to be wider or the wheels should flare out to help compensate for this. (Follow their advice and NEVER leave the dog unattended while in this wheelchair.)
2. Getting the front harness off of the frame's front clips is still a challenge for me, because the style of the clips makes it difficult to slide them open when everything is hooked together. This is a huge opportunity for improvement by the manufacturer.
3. The leg holes in the rear harness are almost a bit too small because they slide up to the widest part of the dog's rear legs, making me feel that my dog finds it uncomfortable. I think the holes could be a bit wider or elongated to better fit the natural leg shape.
4. The rear harness doesn't hold onto the dog well, meaning that when the dog is out of the wheelchair the harness quickly falls off. This becomes a problem when you put the front & rear harness on first, before clipping into the wheelchair frame.

New legs in the form of wheels.

The product is well designed. My dog took to it right away and she gets around very well. Thanks for caring about disabled pets that we don't want to let go of.

Hey Anthony.
So happy to hear that your dog is adjusting well to her wheels! If you have any images or videos of her zooming around please send them to care@aocpet.com for our team to see!

Respectfully,
AOC

He hates it.

He’s fifteen, has three legs, set in his ways, and while a very well made product, very good product, after two months of practice he still hates it totally and is unusable. We even took off the back harness so his back leg is more comfortable and has normal motion. We’ve tried different strategies to help him get used to it and have had to take a break. It’s not worth frustrating him since he can still walk short distances. Good product but it has turned out to be $300 down the tubes. Kind of like the ramp we bought him from another vendor. He just won’t do it. Expensive experiments.
