The 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.

The Parts of the Small Dog Wheelchair
The frame is blue, camo or pink powder-coated aluminum. It will not bend, break or rust. On each side of the frame are black knuckles which hold the leg of the wheelchair to the frame. The black end cap will be facing up. The wheels/struts will be inserted into the leg and adjusted to the proper height. The knuckle has a high and low setting which can be adjusted with a Phillips screwdriver (see DVD instructions).
Width Connectors: (2 connectors with regular frame)
Your wheelchair will come with two width connectors (7″ and 4″). One is already installed in the back of your cart. Adjust the width so there is 1″ on each side of your dog’s body and the black knuckle on the cart frame. If you need more width, the cart comes equipped with a longer connector in the box.
Your wheelchair will come with two extenders (side rails) installed which determine the length of your dog. The length of the extender should end in the middle of the dog’s front leg. It should not pass the front leg. Note: If the button is inside the black knuckle, use a pen tip to push it through to the next button position.
The Front Harness: The dog’s head goes between the blue and black strap, and the red strap goes around the chest and clips on the side of the harness.
The shoulder pads (A) are made of neoprene and keep the straps and buckles from causing discomfort for the dog. The red strap (B) goes behind the front legs, underneath the chest and holds the front harness securely when clipped into the side panel. Neoprene comfort sleeves wrap around the straps for the dogs comfort. It is best to take comfort sleeves off while adjusting the three straps snug to your dog. Comfort sleeves can be cut in half if they are too long.
Parts of the Wheel Kit
One set comes in wheel kit.
Struts are what the wheels are attached to which then snap into the cart. The struts are adjustable within a range of three inches. The small wheelchair struts come in 4 different sizes: 6, 9, & 11 inches. Each small wheelchair kit comes with the appropriate struts to fit pets with a 3″ – 8″ Fold of flank. For pets with an 8″ – 15″ fold of flank, you will receive an add on wheel and strut kit.
Leg Rings (Shown Attached to the Dog Wheelchair)
The hindquarters of the dog are held in place by the leg rings, or our rear harness support system. We have found that most dogs adapt quickly to the leg rings. The leg rings are included with the cart.
The leg rings that come with your Walkin’ Wheels work great used as a lifting harness. The excess strapping can be Velco together to make handles on each side.
Wheels & Struts:
The wheels are attached to a metal piece called a “strut”. At the end of the strut, you will see a push button. The wheels should be inserted into the leg of the wheelchair with the push button on the outside to determine the height.
The Belly Belt will help support your dog’s back. Highly recommended for:
1. Dogs with a long back
2. Overweight or eldery dogs
3. Dogs with curvature of the spine
4. Dogs with disc problems
One Belly Belt is included with each wheel kit.
These are used to keep your animal’s back legs from dragging on the ground if the legs are paralyzed or weak. The length of the stirrups can be easily adjusted by moving the clip down on the rope and re-tying the knot.
The Manual & DVD:
This literature and DVD will be included with the cart. Please watch the DVD before setting up the cart to give you a full understanding of how the cart works. If you have any questions, you should call Handicappedpetscanada.com, 778-809-7421.
The tool kit comes in a plastic bag and includes:
– Allen Wrench
– Set Screws (8) You only need to use 6 set screws total.
2 – bottom of the legs
2 – end of frame
You will see small holes where the set screws are attached. This will keep the frame from rattlling and tightens everything up.
Note: An adjustment to the dog wheelchair, requiring a phillips screwdriver, is required for dogs over 6 inches high. If you would like us to make this adjustment for you, please let us know when you place your order.
If your dog has a fold of flank (FOF) higher than 15″, please see the medium and large cart sizes.

Dimensions required to fit a standard Small Wheelchair:
(If your pet’s dimensions fall a bit out of this range, give us a call to confirm if an adjustment can be made to fit your pet into a small.)
| 2. Fold of Flank:
From 3″ – 8″
(Add ons available up to 15″)
The Walkin’ Wheels Small Cart can accommodate 4″ or 8″ wheels. The bigger the wheels, the easier it is to maneuver over obstacles or on grass. If your dog stays mostly on cement and sidewalks, the 4″ wheels will work great. If your dog spends a great deal of time on grass and in parks, you can opt for the 8″ wheels instead.
