One of their most popular items, the Houndabout Bike Trailer, has a brand new design. The frame is made of rust-proof aluminum, and the cabin has been redesigned so your dog will have better visibility and more “headroom”.
Using a bicycle trailer to exercise with your pet eliminates any guilt you might have about enjoying the outdoors without your buddy! The trailer comes folded up and assembly is not labor intensive. The tow bar attaches to your rear axle and you’re ready to go. The medium trailer, with 16″ air-filled tires, is for pets up to 50 lbs and the large trailer, with 20″ air-filled tires, is for pets up to 110 lbs.
Both Houndabout II trailers can be converted to a stroller in about a minute. The aluminum stroller kit, consisting of a padded handlebar, swiveling front wheel, parking brake and cup holder, must be purchased separately from the bike trailer.

Some dogs leap right into strollers and car seats, while others are much more cautious.
My first suggestion is to open up the stroller, put the brake on, and set it in a room where your dog is likely to explore it. Be sure the brake is on so he’s not frightened by any movement. Let him sniff it, walk around it, look inside it and generally try to figure it out. You can place a chair next to it, so he can jump up and hopefully go inside the stroller. Strollers that have a lower point of entry are sometimes more inviting because they can just be unzipped.
Consider putting you dog’s bed inside the cabin of the stroller, a favorite toy and/or a small treat. When it seems like your dog is somewhat comfortable sitting inside the stroller, take him for a stroll around the room.
Allow your dog to investigate and get used to the stroller for a few days to a week. This is usually all it takes for your dog to like a stroller.

For the active pet owner, riding a bike is one of the most enjoyable ways for you to get exercise and for your pet to experience the sights and scents of the outdoors. There is a bicycle trailer out there for almost any size pet. Pet bicycle trailers can attach to almost every type of bike, with little effort. Reasons to acquire a pet bike trailer include:
You have a pet who does not like to miss out on any fun activity that involves the outdoors and being with his owner.
You have a pet that can run or walk for short distances, but it is not as far as you would like to travel.
You don’t want to be concerned about the safety of your pet around traffic or other dogs while you are on your bike.
Dog bike trailers are multi-functional. They can easily be converted to a pet stroller for days you prefer to walk with your pet.
You love to ride your bike and want your pet to have a similar experience and not be sitting at home alone.
Some reputable Dog Bike Trailer manufacturers include DoggyRide, PetEgo and Solvit. All three make great products, with some offering more features than others. Pet bicycle trailers have sturdy floors, air-filled tires and shock absorbers. They have plenty of room for your pet, or pets, to sit, stand up, turn around and lie down. They have mesh viewing windows and some have a sun-roof!
We see the words “Denier 600 fabric” on many of the dog and cat strollers on the market, but what does that mean?
Denier, nylon and polyester, is a unit of measuring the weight of a thinly spun fiber. It tells us how durable the material is, and also the fineness of natural and synthetic fiber filaments and yarns. The higher the Denier number the thicker and tighter the weave of the fabric, while a lower Denier indicates a finer, more loosely woven, fabric.
So if you were buying a neck scarf then you would look for a lower Denier number because loosely spun fibers tend to make the scarf softer to the touch. However, you might want an outdoor tent, or a piece of luggage with a higher Denier number because the tighter weave makes it more durable.
For pet strollers, a higher Denier number means the fabric can be easily spot cleaned with a wet rag, and that it is more resistant to tears from pet claws. Dirty paw prints are likely to end up on the inside of your stroller compartment and it’s convenient to quickly wipe the stains after use.
Contrary to popular belief, Min Pins are not miniature Doberman Pinschers. They are believed to be a cross between a Dachshund and an Italian Greyhound, and are a descendant of the German Pinscher. Min Pins are referred to as “King of the Toys,” and they will gladly take the position of king, or queen, of your household. They are very confident, strong-willed dogs who like to think they are big dogs. At 8-11 pounds and 10-12.5 inches in height, the Min Pin’s gait has been compared to a prance. Their average life span is 14-17 years and they are very loyal to their humans. They will happily occupy the space on your lap and cuddle up close.
One thing to be cautious of is that these dogs like to run. One reason Min Pins end up in shelters is because they have run far from home. They are also stubborn to train, do not like cats and will try to dominate other dogs. Small children who do not know how to play with dogs generally aren’t a good fit with the Min Pin. These dogs have such small legs that can break easily if a child were to mishandle the dog or fall onto it.
Min Pins do not like to be left alone for long periods of time. They can become destructive and may bark excessively. Min Pins like to be on the go. They do well when taken out and allowed to socialize. You can take your Min Pin shopping, to the park or just around town to interact with and be handled by others.
