Waggy Tails & Wheelchairs
The Complete Guide to Harmonious Living for You and your DogBook - 2010
Confined to a wheelchair but still want a dog - is that a good idea? Indeed it is, as the author - who's wheelchair dependant - ably demonstrates. Here, everything that mobility-impaired potential dog owners need to consider to enable them to own and care for their very own canine companion, even if finances are restricted; or they do not have their own car or assistance, is described and illustrated in detail. Wheelchair and mobility scooter users face their own particular challenges when it comes to dog ownership: how will they walk their dog; train and teach it; play games with it, and all importantly, pick up that poop? From his unique viewpoint, the author answers all of these questions and concerns, and more besides, allowing readers to assess and determine whether they can share their special lifestyle with a dog, and what they can do in preparation of this happy circumstance.
