Kodiak’s Wheels

Kodiaks Wheels is a program that was inspired by the struggle Monica Popaduke’s boy, Kodiak, went through as he aged. Mobility was not his friend and his being such a large breed dog, it became increasingly more difficult as his condition progressed. He was unable to stand up on his own or remain standing. He needed wheels.

Through the amazing generosity of our Shiloh community, a collection was started and Kodiak got his wheels. Unfortunately it was delivered the day he told Monica that he just couldn’t fight anymore. She promised him that she would do everything she could to try to make sure that no other Shiloh would be without wheels if they needed them. This sparked the beginning of the ISSDC Kodiaks Wheels program.

Through this program, the ISSDC is offering to its members a loan of a Walk-in’ Wheels Wheelchair. They can use the wheels for the remainder of their beloved Shiloh’s life. When it is no longer needed, depending on its condition, the wheelchair will be returned, refurbished and be made available to another Shiloh in need.

Monica would like to expand this program to also include other items and equipment for aging, sick or disabled Shilohs. She would love to add sun goggles for Shilohs diagnosed with Pannus or other eye conditions where sunlight or harsh glare can be damaging. She would like to also add the Helpemup Harness to this program. These harnesses are essential when having to lift a 100+ pound crippled Shiloh to a standing position, to help guide them on a walk keeping their hind end up and supported allowing them to walk with human assistance.

There are a lot of possibilities for expansion to this program. The main goal is that none of our Shilohs ever goes without the special equipment or gear that will improve their quality of life because of financial issues.

TESTIMONIALS (click here)

Bosker is an 110lb, 11yr Shiloh Shepherd, who had always been quite active and enjoyed playing fetch. Last year he started getting very confused and anxious at night with pacing, whining, barking, and howling. Having had older dogs before, we knew a few tricks to help out, but he is much larger and louder than our other seniors were. After nothing else worked, we saw a friend recommend your treats. I was hesitant because I had already tried a few different types of calming treats with hardly any noticeable effect. However I’m glad that we tried them, because I was wrong to be hesitant. Your treats really came through! Bosker is now sleeping most of the night again, his panicky vibe is gone,(and we’re able to get more sleep as well!). He also has more focus and interest in playing and interacting than he has had in a while. I can’t wait for him to try them out as well when thunderstorms return to New England.I can’t praise your treats enough.  

Thank you, Moni Mansfield
