I'm not sure if this idea will help or not, but when bikejoring, and some of the other dog pulling sports, a pool noodle cut into the appropriate size is used to keep the lines from getting to close to the rig. If nothing else, a pool noodle is easy to work with, light weight, and inexpensive.

Thank you ! I like the idea, I think it would work too. And it wouldn’t scratch my chair like the pvc might.

I wonder how I could get the leash through it though ?

Pool noodle, well I think that is even a better option that could work. Good thinking ladies.

Hollow pool noodle should be a possibility. This particular one is on the Lowes Canada site

I had a moment of thinking a fishing rod holder with clamp might be useful, but looking at the clamp, I don't think that would suit.

Wow, I need one of those ! I had no idea they made hollow pool noodles. I think my local store might have them. :-)

Those pool noodles look like the perfect solution. Lightweight yet will keep the leash away from your chair safely. Since you will cut it up you can experiment and find the right length. You could even cut a slit through to the middle to make it easy to slip on and off the leash

Charmed, what a smart suggestion. Dechi, I hope you can make it work for you.

I was having a creative moment this morning. Forgive the messy drawing, I am neither an artist nor a draftsperson. If the noodle doesn't work, perhaps something like this???

My thought was the challenge was to keep dogs out from wheels, and provide enough support to the arm to keep it steady, yet still easily detachable. I have no clue what your wheelchair looks like, but here was the idea.... a rope to fasten the pipe around the wheel chair back, or some other appropriate support, and a two dog coupler so both can go at once. Like this one:
https://www.renspets.com/products/co...-8-width-18-24
Rope could be something soft, strong, and durable from an outdoors store or canadian tire, similar to this:
https://www.mec.ca/en/product/0403-0...on-Static-Cord


The end design is based roughly off the bike attachment I had as a teen. Make sure to use harnesses on the dogs, of course!

Instructions:
  1. cut pvc to appropriate size
  2. drill hole on pvc at a point slightly lower ger than the chair back or attachment point
  3. Drill holes on two PC end caps- 1 for width of rope, one to width of eye bolt
  4. screw eye bolt into pvc cap, add washer and nut
  5. thread rope or nylon webbing through hole in pvc pipe, then second end cap
  6. glue both end caps to pvc pipe, allow to cure or dry
  7. attach o ring to 2 dog coupler to eyebolt
  8. cut rope to size and attach clip (can be whatever is easy for you to open, maybe an old leash clip?)
  9. rope should be long enough to securely strap to attachment point/back of chair with little movement of pvc pipe
  10. test without dogs

Make sure to use a harness, of course.
