Synopsis

Confined to a wheelchair but still want a dog – is that a good idea? Indeed it is, as the author – who’s wheelchair dependent – ably demonstrates. 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 it; play games with it, 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.

Independent Reviews

"Epp's descriptions of extended wild solo camping trips with German Shephard, full of useful tips on equipment and personal safety, redefine the landscape of what is and isn't 'accessible'. Epp's respect and love for his dogs shines though on every page." – www.drivingwithdogs.co.uk

"Waggy Tails and Wheelchairs has lots of useful information that any wheelchair or scooter user who is contemplating getting a dog would do well to read. The author is realistic about the work involved in having a dog, but if the right strategies are in place, it will be a tremendously rewarding experience for both the individual and the dog. As an organisation involved in training assistance dogs, Dogs for the Disabled has built up many years of practical experience of working with wheelchair users. Whilst Dogs for the Disabled uses some different techniquesin its training work, this book nevertheless contains a wealth of tips that will prove invaluable. If you are a wheelchair user thinking if getting a companion dog, this is the book for you." – Peter Gorbing, Chief Executive

"Wheelchair user Alexander Epp draws on his 20 years' experience owning, training and caring for dogs. He discusses a range of issues that need to be considered before the decision to bring home a dog is made, and provides tips on choosing a breed." – Dogs NSW
