Dog Wheelchair Plans
We now have customized dog wheelchair plans for medium and large sized dogs!
For our medium dog PVC wheelchair plans, see the Dogge Chariot™.
This page will focus on our wooden quad wheelchair design for larger dogs, the Dogge Buggy™.
Lucia, a 100-lb Borzoi, whose rear legs are completely paralyzed is shown using a Dogge Buggy™ at left.
Dogge Buggy™ Features
- Use as a quad wheelchair for permanent support or an interim step (i.e., rehabilitation) to a two-wheeled version.
- The design is sturdy and relatively light weight.
- It won't tip over with your dog in it.
Important: You will need to be able to lift up your dog to put him/her into the sling and slightly raise the rear legs as you back the dog into the chair.

- The dog's rear legs are suspended, while the torso is given as much support as necessary to modify weight on the front legs.
- The wheelchair is designed to work on rougher terrains such as dirt roads or grass as well as paved areas.
- The front wheels have a proprietary swivel design designed to last much longer than caster wheels.
Dogge Buggy™ Video
The video shows Lucia trying out the wheelchair after being mostly off her feet for a year.
As you will see, she needs encouragement at this stage. Her nails are too long, hence the mincing steps.
Unfortunately, she and her owner moved away before we could take more videos of her progress.
