Snowy, slushy roadways make traveling on foot unpleasant. When you’re pet comes along then you will want a pet stroller that can go in the snow. First, any pet stroller will travel over snow-covered roads, but some will do so more easily than others.
Probably the biggest consideration for a winter pet stroller is the tires. Strollers with larger, air-filled tires are easier to maneuver over rough terrain than are ones with small wheels. This will include pet Jogger Strollers and strollers that ride close to the ground.
Pet Gear and Gen7Pets both make durable pet jogging strollers that are perfect for winter weather. The Pet Gear No-Zip NV stroller is a three-wheeled vehicle with 12 inch air-filled tires. The NV comes with a weather cover. The front wheel can be locked or remain in the swivel position. Many people find it easier to navigate over rough terrain when the front wheel is in the locked position. The Jogger stroller, also made by Pet Gear, has 12 inch air-filled tires and a front wheel that can be locked.
Gen7Pets recently added a Jogger to their stroller line. It has a front locking wheel. Even though the tires of this jogger are not air-filled, they are larger and able to handle uneven road conditions.
Doggyride strollers ride close to the ground and are easy to steer. The large, air-filled tires also make it easy for owners to push their way through snowy roads. The mini stroller has 12 inch tires, and the Novel and Original strollers have 20 inch tires.
Solvit makes the medium and large size houndabout bike trailers. Both of these trailers can be converted to a stroller with an optional strolling kit. The Solvit bike trailers have large, air-filled tires and ride close to the ground.
PerfectPetStroller.com carries all the strollers mentioned above.
For humans, having a positive mental attitude has been shown to increase recovery time after an injury or a surgery. Having a negative attitude may mean we feel depressed, hopeless or cynical about our potential to return to our former state of good health. People in this state of mind tend to detach themselves emotionally from the situation and don’t make much effort to get better.
What do we tell a person who feels like this? We encourage them to do what they can, get outside for some fresh air, take a walk and talk with friends and family. We can make the leap and say this type of phenomenon also occurs in pets. Pets rely on humans to nurse them back to health.
Recovering dogs need to get outside and visit with friends, even if only with human friends, in order to keep up their spirits. In many cases, physically moving is an important part of the recovery process from an injury or surgery. Fresh air and a cool breeze are key to a positive attitude.
Getting your dog outside is easy with the use of a pet stroller. Many people use pet strollers in their everyday lives with their dog or dogs, while others use one temporarily in situations such as following an injury or surgery. Pet strollers have a lined and padded cabin floor, for the comfort of a recovering pet. They have strong suspensions systems so your pet feels safe while the stroller is moving. Many pet strollers have large, air-filled tires which provide a smooth ride, especially over uneven terrain.
There are many strollers that are designed so your dog can stick his head out during the ride. Strollers that ride closer to the ground are optimal for the injured pet due to the lower center of gravity. There is a pet stroller suitable for just about any immobile pet.
