Mobility Scooters & dog walking
Three days to go
I'm more excited about getting my scooter on Saturday than I am about my birthday!
While I get used to handling the scooter and
a dog, I've decided to do my first walks with Roux. He's much calmer than Ella about walking alongside the wheelchair (she always seems to go out of her way to get run over
), and generally has a quieter disposition. We're going to start off with my OH walking the dogs alongside me, to get them used to it, and then have me take Roux out with someone alongside us incase we run into difficulties.
I found on eBay a little doohickey (technical term
) that is designed for attaching your dog to your bike or wheelchair, and it looks like it would adapt easily to use with the mobility scooter, but my fear would be that if anything went wrong, I won't physically have hold of the lead. Does anyone use something like this, or do you manage to juggle your dog's lead and steer the scooter?
