I work with rescue and fostered a 3 legged dog who happened to be pregnant. One of her puppies was was born without front legs! Obviously he had mobility issues from the start!
I immediately started looking for possible carts and I loved the fact that Eddie's Wheels are custom made. Carts from the other companies out there looked very cheap and "tinker toyish" to me.
We waited until our boy, Lego, was about a year old to order. We did all of the measurements ourselves with phone and email guidance from Leslie at Eddie's Wheels.
Although we didn't need to, we decided it would be a fun trip to fly to MA to pick the cart up. Eddie gave us a tour of the shop and explained how the carts are made. We also got to meet Willa and Webster, brother and sister chihuahua mix dogs that were also born without front legs!
While we were there, Eddie explained to us that the current wheels on Lego's cart were on the small side and that he was looking into different wheel suppliers. He was right. While Lego's cart worked great, he had stability issues with the smaller wheels. I emailed Leslie our concerns. When they received the bigger (and oddly enough, lighter) wheels from the new supplier they sent us a pair for free.
Lego has had his wheels for about 2 years now and can go just about anywhere he wants with them! He's a little guy, about 8 lbs, and the cart is light enough that he can pick it up to get over obstacles and keep on rolling! The cart is also designed to let him do all the regular doggie stuff, like sit or bend forward and sniff things on the ground.
We are extremely happy with our purchase and sing the praises of Eddie's Wheels to anyone who asks!
Pros: Extreme Mobility!
