Description

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 him; play games with him, and, all importantly, pick up that poop?

Here, everything that a mobility-impaired potential dog owner needs to consider to enable him or her to own and care for their very own canine companion – even if finances are restricted, or they do not have their own car, carers or helpers – is described and illustrated in detail.

From his unique viewpoint, the author answers all of these questions and concerns, and much more besides, allowing readers to assess and determine whether they can share their special lifestyle with a dog, and what they can do to bring about this happy situation.
