Tips on Getting Dog Used to WheelChair + Fit Tips

Hi! I am a 3-month owner of a mini poodle paralyzed in her back 2 legs. She was paralyzed by injury. We have the small rear wheelchair and I can't seem to get her to love it. She definitely is okay in it, but I just want her to LOVE it and be able to move around as effortlessly as possible. She seems so excited when I put her in it, but when she is in it, she just stands there or moves very slowly. I have the original wheels - maybe she needs the larger ones? I also have it set up so her backside is just slightly higher than her front - is that wrong?

Any tips are welcome!!

Hi Courtney,
The best thing for you to do is email me a picture of your dog in the wheelchair for fitting evaluation. That way I can be sure everything is fitting properly and then give tips. Please get down low when you take a side view and rear view. You can send it to this email with your name on the subject line: nancy@hpets.net :thankyou:

Jessica,

Send me a few pictures of your dog in the wheelchair for fitting evaluation. I would like to see a side view and rear view. I am sure I can get your dog loving her wheels. Also, on the subject line, put your name and email address, phone number so I can contact you.
