My name is Brandon Pennington and I am the founder of Performance Dog Wheelchairs. I LOVE all animals, but especially dogs!
I’ve been amazed by how similar dogs are to humans. They get a lot of the same health issues and feel the same emotions that humans do. I have been around animals my whole life and have always had a dog ever since I was a child. I have had all types of dogs, both big and small. I have also dealt with a lot of heartache with several of my dogs and their health. I too have dealt with my own health problems.
One of those issues is a leg discrepancy which has caused me pain and issues walking ever since I was young. Dealing with my own physical mobility issue and seeing so many dogs have issues with their mobility, is why I started Performance Dog Wheelchairs. I’m a very active person, but have always struggled with pain and mobility. I’ve seen so many other dogs deal with similar issues.
Performance Dog Wheelchairs and veterinarians want you to help spread the word about our dog wheelchairs.
We want you to know that physical limitations are not the end to mobility. Our purpose is to give others and their dogs the ability to seek new adventures and overcome physical challenges with one of our dog wheelchairs.
A dog wheelchair is also referred to as a handicap dog cart or wheels for handicap dogs. One of the common needs is for hip dysplasia. Our dog wheelchairs are for small and large breeds. Some of the breeds who commonly use our dog wheelchairs are a Dachshund (Weiner dog or Sausage dog), French Bulldog, Bulldog, Boxer Dog and a Pug Dog.
We offer a full support dog wheelchair which is also referred to as a dog quad wheelchair or four wheel dog wheelchair, a dog wheelchair for back legs and the patented SitGo Dog Wheelchair. This is the only one that allows your dog to go from standing to sitting without having to remove it.
