So I looked into Handicappedpets.com and read and read and read. I thought that since this cart was so adjustable in every way, this was the one for me. So I finally purchased one from them. When it came it took me days to just put it together. It came with a video so I watched it several times. I finally got it put together to fit Barney. The first thing I noticed is how heavy it was. The box it came in says it is only 3 pounds. Well, that right there is the first “non-truth”… Barney’s Walkin Wheels cart weighs over 4 pounds (I weighed it). The next thing is it comes with a harness that you have to put on the dog first and then put your dog into the cart and then connect the harness onto the frame. And if you are not really careful, you can pinch him which I did and really felt bad. That made him not want to even get into it anymore.
The most aggravating thing was the harness that went around his chest. He could only make a few steps and the strap would fall down around his legs and he couldn’t move. I tried so many adjustments like changing the belly strap and making it higher upon his chest until it was almost around his throat and it still wouldn’t stay up. I called Handicapped Pets and she told me there was another Dachshund that had one of their carts and he had the same trouble. I was told to tie a SHOE LACE from the front strap to the back strap that went across his shoulders. That also did not work.. She told me that they had their designers redesigning that harness so it would not fall down and I was put on a waiting list. (which I am sure I will never get a call).
I would very, very highly recommend if you are looking for a wonderful wheelchair for your pet, purchase an Eddie’s Wheels wheelchair. It will save you a whole lot of aggravation for you and your pet if you purchase yours from Eddie’s Wheels. You will LOVE it. I call Barney’s cart now his “Cadillac… ” Thank you so very much Eddie’s Wheels.
