The weight of the dog on the sizing guide is for reference only. Every dog is shaped differently, and we recommend using the length measurement as your primary measurement.
When measuring start at the base of the rib cage. Every dog positions their legs differently, and this can change the size scooter your patient needs. If the pet’s legs extend behind them as they drag, measure to the tips of their toes, if the dog sits on their legs as they scoot, measure to the end of the rump.

Can a pet lie down in the Scooter?
Yes, they can lie down while using they Scooter. Because their back end is slightly raised some pets may not find this comfortable and may prefer to sit on the scooter. For most dogs laying down is not an issue.
How long can a pet stay in the Scooter?
The Scooter is comfortably padded, and the Scooter bag has the screened panel for air, so there is no problem leaving the dog in the scooter for longer periods of time. If the dog is incontinent then hygiene needs to be maintained, even if the dog is wearing a diaper.
Can the Scooter be used outside?
We recommend the Scooter for indoor use and to help your pet easily maneuver indoor obstacles. The Scooter is designed to be gentle on your walls, baseboards and flooring. The Scooter’s special roller ball casters will move easily across hardwood flooring, tile, linoleum and Berber carpeting. With its low profile the Scooter may catch on roots, stones and other outdoor obstacles. Recommend to pet parents that for their pet’s safety the Scooter should be used inside. For outdoor use we recommend the Walkin’ Wheels Wheelchair.
Is it ok to leave a pet unattended in the Scooter?
Most pets are very comfortable in the Scooter and can wear it for extended periods of time without issue. However, there is always the possibility that the scooter can get stuck on or under a piece of furniture, doorway, or similar obstruction so we do not recommend leaving the dog unattended for long periods of time. You will get to know the pet’s limitations and comfort level with the scooter and be able to judge this based on the individual circumstances.
