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.

Give it time

Frustrating to get the adjustments just right on my own. BUT, we eventually got it right! His patience and training paid off.
Two months in a crate after surgery and with literally no hope in sight … I put him in his chair and off he went!
We are now four months out. The movement of the chair matches his natural rhythm and he is learning to walk.
Only one problem -the belly strap and my male dog don’t work. Too wide and slides back so it gets covered in urine. We adjusted by using a beautiful scarf rolled lengthwise and tied in a bow! He is the star of the neighborhood and his progress is checked daily on our walks by children and parents alike.
Thank you for giving me back my boy “Buck”

The dog loved the chair.

The chair was awesome. It gave him freedom to roam again. As his health got worse, we added a second set of wheels which could support his entire body and he lived it. He coud stand again. No more lying in his dog bed all day.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. Looks like customer care is in contact with you regarding the fitting of the wheelchair and your modifications to the wheels. SO glad to hear that your dog's quality of life in increasing and providing improvement to his mobility!

Just what he needed

Excellent! Got Our dachshund up and moving again. Helped him get the strength to walk again. He now only needs it when we take him outside where terrain is rough, and he requires the extra support. Customer support was great. Contacted us day after our order was placed to give us estimated delivery date and give us contact info in case, we needed help adjusting it for our Dog

Hi Paul,
We are happy to hear your dg is up and being more mobile! What a sweet dog he sounds like! We hope the wheelchair brings continued happiness to you and your dog. Please let us know if you have any questions down the line! Thank you for taking the time to write a review.
