It’s important to pay attention to the INSIDE dimensions when considering a pet stroller purchase. For many pet strollers, you can find the outside dimensions and the folded dimensions, but you also really want to know how much room is inside the cabin.
If you are planning to buy a pet strollers that is much larger than your dog, then you don’t need to worry too much about it. However, if you are coming close to the weight recommendation or have more than one pet that will go inside, all dimensions are important.
Will your pet sit, lie down or stand inside the cabin? Well, that can be difficult to predict. For larger dogs, it is often the case that they will lie down in the cabin. Lying down may give a bigger dog a greater sense of stability. Cabins such as the DoggyRide Novel or Original, PetEgo Comfort Wagon and the Solvit Houndabout were designed for the large dog to either sit, stand or lie down, comfortably.
Medium-sized animals have more options for jogger strollers. For example, a 60 pound Basset Hound (24″ Long and 14″ Tall) will comfortably fit into: The Pet Gear Jogger or NV Strollers (30″L x 13″W x 22″H), the Gen7Pets Jogger (26″L x 14″W x 22″H), The PetZip Happy Trailer (28″L x 17″W x 24″H) or any of the pet strollers for large animals.
An American Bulldog that stands 13 inches tall, 26 inches long and weighs about 55 pounds could choose the Pet Gear Jogger, NV or AT3, the PetZip Happy Trailer or any of the big dog strollers. The bulldog has a longer body so it will be important to decide whether or not he will likely ride in the sitting position, or whether he is a dog that would rather lie down. He will be more comfortable lying down in one of the big dog strollers.
Smaller dogs often like to ride high off the ground so they can see the world better. So, they might be a happier in the Gen7Pets Jogger, any of the Pet Gear Joggers, or the PetZip Happy Trailer.
