Thanks, Ria P - that might work. I'll try it out this afternoon while she's in her play pen.

Actually, after a wee small hours trip to watch her play, it seems her back is just bending a little although she's still not quite fully grown yet, so I think she needs a bigger wheel. Her current wheel is only about 4-5 inches. What size is recommended for a dwarf, please?

Edit: can anyone recommend a good make? I quite like the wooden ones, but do they need plasticoating first? I ordered a Trixie wooden wheel in January, but when it arrived it didn't turn without there being some undesirable forward / backward motion (ie a kind of wibble). What do people think of the Rodipet version? I would be really grateful for some advice.
