Restoring Mobility to Senior Pooches

As dogs get older, many, like my own 14-year-old pug, Lily, experience challenges with mobility. While dog wheelchairs have existed for quite some time, they’re usually too big and heavy to work for older dogs who lack strength in their front legs. Dogs need exercise and walks for stimulation, good health and to prevent their muscles from atrophying. That’s why it was so important to me to find a solution that worked for Lily and other dogs like her.

I teamed up with researchers from the British Columbia Institute of Technology to design a lightweight, supportive dog wheelchair that really catered to older dogs and would allow them to comfortably move around on their own. My mission with the wheelchair, as it is with all of our Dog Quality products, is to improve the quality of life for senior dogs and, as Lily can attest, the device really helps to do that.

We’ve been testing the wheelchair and adapting our design to fit the needs of senior dogs. The final prototype features a carbon fiber frame that goes over the dog so that pet parents don’t have to lift their pooch. The carbon fiber is exceptionally light, making it easier for dogs to move about and the attached fabric harness can be adjusted to provide more or less support. We’re hoping to create several sizes as well. By restoring mobility with our patent pending specialized senior dog wheelchair, you and your dog can continue to have adventures and make the most of those golden years.
