Wheelchairs for Mini Dachshunds

Posted by SusanStokes on March 22, 2019

Founded in 2001 by Mark Robinson to support pet families and caretakers in making loving decisions that help pets enjoy the best quality of life, Walkin’ Pets designs a wide range of trusted, affordable pet products for animals in need. Now disabled Mini Dachshunds can enjoy the freedom of movement that Walkin' Pets brings their way!

The Dachshund breed, with their short legs and long body, is more prone to back problems which can impair their mobility.  Fortunately, Dachshunds can continue to live healthy, active lives with the help of a mobility assistance device.

According to their recent press release, the new Mini Doxie Walkin’ Wheels pet wheelchair has the same great features as the larger Walkin’ wheels designs. It is adjustable in height, length, and width, but specifically designed to accommodate the needs of Dachshunds. Stirrups hold rear legs off the ground if the Dachshund is paralyzed. The removable harness and leg rings are washable and adjustable to give pets maximum comfort. And the wheelchair is easily converted into a full support/quad wheelchair with the Mini Front Wheel Attachment for dachshunds needing support in both the front and rear legs.
