Dog strollers are not for high maintenance dogs. Yes, some pets are a little spoiled and do enjoy strolling around instead of walking once in a while and that's okay, but we can not judge so fast. A smaller dog can not walk as much as larger dogs can. As long as your pet gets the proper amount of exercise it's okay to show them off in a pet stroller.
Some other reasons why you may find a dog / cat stroller useful would be if your dog is elderly and can not walk very far, injured, if your pet has health issues such as seizures or arthritis, if you have a puppy or even a kitty, they like the outdoors too. If you like long walks but your pet can not keep up with you or if you want to ride your bike just attach a bicycle trailer and off you go. Talking from personal experience, a stroller would have come in handy when my 4 month old Lab decided to stop walking and I had to carry his chubby body back home.
When selecting the right pet stroller, do not just go by the capacity limit also review the dimensions. You want to make sure your dog or cat has enough room to turn and sit up. This way they'll feel much more comfortable and want to stay in the stroller. If this is your pets' first stroller, introduce it to them before you put it to use. Let them sniff and check it out.
Pet strollers come in a variety of sizes, styles, and colors. Pet owners favor the Jogger pet stroller by pet Gear. It offers a sporty look, parent tray, large storage basket, one hand mechanism and the capacity of 70 pounds, just to name a few features. Some pet strollers are All-In-One, meaning they function as a stroller, carrier and / or car seat. These have a capacity to hold between 15 -50 pounds depending on the style. These come in handy when you need to take your pet to the vet for instance and most carriers are airline approved making it easier to travel with your furry best friend. If you prefer riding on rugged roads, the All-Terrain stroller is what you'll need. These offer safety and durability. Some of the features include easy one hand fold, 12 "EVA tires, quick lock foot brake and rear wheel shock absorbers.
As you've read, there are many reasons for such a thing as a pet stroller. Regardless without your pet is small or on the heavier side a pet stroller can be your second best friend.
