At Ruff Rolin’ our goal is to see your pup’s quality of life restored so that they can get the most out of it while they can. We have already made many custom-fit wheelchairs that are the perfect match for the unique Dachshund body shape. Our customers report the amazing results of how much fun a doggie can have even when living a life that is hampered by an injury. The doggie wheels are made with steel and plastic that can take the wear and tear of backyard play and long neighborhood walks with your favorite companion.

Though there are many companies that offer adjustable wheelchairs that could be useful, we have found that most of them cannot accommodate the interesting size and shape of the Dachshund. That is why we worked so hard to create something that would not only fit the Dachshund’s small frame, but also be comfortable, secure, and safe to assist with all kinds of outdoor and indoor play. A happy dog is a happy home, to be sure. Just imagine seeing your Dachshund rolling around the kitchen again while you cook breakfast for the family.

Dachshund Back Injury

Back problems in Dachshunds are more accurately referred to as spinal problems. While it is most common for a Dachshund to develop a problem in the middle spine, they can also suffer from injuries in the neck or cervical spine. About one in five Dachshunds may develop spinal issues that can degenerate over time and with age. A back injury for a Dachshund, while not necessarily permanent, can be debilitating for your family pup. Nothing could be worse than seeing your family friend in pain or unable to express their joy as they greet you at the door when you come home from work.

Unfortunately with their long backs and short legs, they can be prone to disc herniation, which can lead to problems ranging from minor back pain to paralysis. There is also a common gene in Dachshunds that creates mineral deposits in their spine that increase the risk of this type of herniation and rupture. However, by using a custom fit doggie wheelchair for support, your Dachshund can be back in the game of life. Since a dog is most happy when they are engaged in play, the custom fit Dachshund will raise their quality of life immensely. Since you want your dog to be happy, having a wheelchair to support them will likewise give you a boost as well!

Dachshund Front Leg Problems

Dachshunds are not known for their flexibility and dexterity. Even as puppies, Dachshunds find it more difficult to jump, play, run, and walk due to their interesting shape and size. As they age, when combined with health challenges that limit their mobility, their size and shape becomes more of a hindrance. Nothing is more heartbreaking than seeing your dog plopped down on the couch watching the world go by while they stare longingly at the back yard, unable to go out and enjoy it.

Sometimes your Dachshund might suffer from degeneration of the spine such that it has difficulty using its front legs. For your Dachshund, it is important to be involved in the family fun and neighborhood doggie play, so getting them into a custom fit wheelchair can be just the right fix for the problem. When a spinal injury or degenerative condition begins to reduce your dog’s ability to walk, a hand made solution is available to put the spring back in their step. Just imagine them rollin’ around with that happy disposition, enjoying the fresh air and greenery of the outdoors again.

Whether caused by a spinal injury, degenerative back problems, or from an accident, your dachshund may find that it can no longer walk properly or without pain. Restricted motion or paralysis can rob an otherwise healthy dog of what it is that brings them joy. Though it is difficult to manage, some wheels made especially for your dog’s shape and size will give them the mobility they crave to live a fulfilled doggie life.
