Default I need to pick your brain - bike attachment.

I have an electric wheelchair so I can go on walks around the neighborhood. I am very happy with and the dogs are enjoying their walk.

BUT... This morning something very bad happened. Merlin got his leash caught in the back wheel (theyíre a lot smaller than regular wheelchair wheels). Thank God he was not harmed but he was very scared, and so was I.

Itís all Beckieís fault, she is a tough one to manage on foot, let alone in a wheelchair. She went to meet a dog we were passing (I canít cross the street when we meet dogs, as the law requires me to ę*drive*Ľ in the same lane I would a car. Both dogs got distracted and somehow Merlin got caught.

Now, as this canít happen anymore, I need to get some kind of attachment to keep Merlin from coming close enough to get caught again. There are attachments made specifically for bikes, but not many for wheelchairs. Also mine is foldable and the rods are only 2 cm. And ideally it would allow two dogs to be attached to the chair. Beckie walks further away from me, and Merlin walks closest to the wheelchair.

Any ideas will be appreciated. Thank you.

Oh dear, that does sound upsetting for both of you, but especially for Merlin given his disposition. I don't have any real ideas, but perhaps if you can put up pictures of places where you think an attachment could go someone would be able to get clever on your behalf.

Good idea, thanks !

Here is my chair, and where I think I could set-up the attachement for the dog. I would leave the rod on but would have to take off the attachment in order to fold the chair to bring it back in the house.

Edited to add : they have an add-on coupler, so it would be perfect. It is really expensive though, more than 300$ with shipping and conversion rate.

That leash you posted looks promising. As long as it isn't too expensive, i'd give that a whirl.

While I like this one, I wouldn't use it on a bike with a dog that may pull you over, on a wheelchair maybe but will it keep the pups far enough away from the wheels? You probably won't have the extra slack as you do with a leash so it may have promise. I think the hard pole type may do a better job at keeping a pup away from wheels....... I think though its difficult, if they have enough lead slack they can get caught on a wheel with any model.

Thank you, Iíll try those exact words.

Most of what I googled gave me wheelchairs for dogs, same on Youtube. Very little products or videos actually about walking your dog on a wheelchair, and none with an electric wheelchair. So far.
