Belly Support – for dogs who need support in the center of their body
An easy-to-use neoprene wrap to lift and support your dog under the belly. A mid-body support will lift the center of your dog’s body to help keep its spine level. The belly wrap is necessary for any dog with a back problem or whose back dips down in the center, but especially for long-bodied breeds like a corgi or dachshund.
The Belly Support loops over the wheelchair’s side extender bars and Velcro’s to itself for a comfortable fit. When adjusting your dog’s wheelchair the sidebars should run parallel to the ground, centered through your dog’s body, and your dog’s back should be flat. The Belly Support helps to keep your dog’s back comfortable and supported at all times!

The front harness has both chest support and abdominal support to safely lift your dog’s front end.

Many dogs’ mobility changes and can worsen over time, which is why it’s so important to choose an adjustable wheelchair for your dog.

This is why, at any time, the Walkin’ Wheels Front Attachment can be added to a dog’s cart to turn their rear wheel wheelchair into a four-wheel cart. A full-support or quad wheelchair allows for balanced support on all four legs. Perfect for pets dealing with weakness in multiple limbs.
Front wheel attachments are available to fit every size Walkin’ Wheels dog wheelchair from Mini through Large!
How to choose the right size front wheels for your dog’s wheelchair
The size front attachment that your pet needs, directly correlates the size of the Walkin’ Wheels rear dog wheelchair your pet uses. To size correctly you will need to know the following:

The strut of the Walkin’ Wheels Rear wheelchair is attached to the wheel. Take a tape measure and measure the Walkin’ Wheels strut from end to end.
