Tips for Choosing a Pet Stroller

Spring is here, and nothing is nicer than going for a stroll or jog with your favorite four-legged friend. Dogs, cats, bunnies—even guinea pigs and iguanas—can enjoy being with you in the great outdoors from the safety of their very own stroller.

There are dozens of pet strollers on the market, so choosing the right one can be a challenge. Considering how and where you will want to use your stroller is one of the first things to think about.

Would you like to take your pet with you to the park and stroll on level, paved paths? Or on a window-shopping excursion in a busy shopping area? For the more adventurous, an off-road trek in a wilderness area on uneven terrain might be what you’re interested in.

Do want to walk, jog, or run with your pet stroller? The design and construction of the stroller you choose should fit how and where you want to use it.

For an all-terrain stroller, the AT3 Generation 2 All-Terrain Pet Stroller from Pet Gear might be just the thing for you and will accommodate pets up to 50 pounds.

If you want to jog with your pet stroller, the Pet Gear Jogger Pet Stroller includes features such as a sporty canopy, fleece pad, large storage basket, parent tray, front fixed swivel wheel, rear shock absorbers, and quick-lock foot brake. It also has large, inflatable tires for keeping the ride steady and smooth.

The size and interior dimensions of a stroller are very important for the comfort and safety of your pet. Don’t go just by your pet’s weight when choosing a stroller. Think about the interior dimensions of the cabin, and be sure it is large enough for your pet to stand up and move around in comfortably. Measure your pet standing, sitting, lying down, etc. to determine how much room she will need inside a stroller.

Look at how far the floor of the stroller cabin sits above the ground. You want to be sure it is easy for your pet to get in and out of. For older, heavier, or arthritic pets, having a stroller with a low deck and large openings is best. The Roadster Stroller fits pets up to 100 pounds, while the Expedition Stroller fits extra-large pets up to 150 pounds.

Your pet stroller should have at least one tether inside the cabin to help keep your pet from jumping or falling out.

Sturdy construction and materials are other criteria to look for. You want a substantial, well-constructed frame; large wheels on a steady base; easy-access zippered panels; and sturdy mesh windows for plenty of fresh air circulation. A comfortable, padded handle and good shock absorption are important for long walks or bumpy terrain.

If you are looking for a light-weight, easily portable stroller for leisurely strolls around the block or to use when traveling, the Pet Gear Travel Lite Pet Stroller would be a good choice for you. This stroller provides a comfortable ride for pets weighing up to 15 pounds.

You and your pet can both enjoy the fun and security of a good pet stroller, but remember that your pet still needs to get out there and get lots of good exercise on her own, too.  That’s when a good leash like the Kurgo Quantum Leash would come in handy.

Enjoy some wonderful “spring time” with your favorite pet today!
