Dog seat fitted to a wheelchair

A client who travels in an electric wheel-chair has a dog which is unable, or unwilling, to run when its lead is attached to the wheelchair, and would not get up onto the client’s lap. The client wished to be able to go out and take the dog with her.

A lightweight dog seat was constructed from tubing and canvas, to fit over the client’s legs and feet. It can easily be attached to the wheelchair or removed from it by the client while she is seated in the wheelchair. The dog has no problem in getting on and off its seat.

The client and her pet can now enjoy outings together, although the dog has yet to learn how to drive the electric wheelchair.
