Interior Cabin Space For Multiple Pets

A common question I get asked is whether more than one dog or cat can fit inside a pet stroller. For many strollers, the answer is “yes,” no problem! First, consider the weight of the two (or even 3) animals. Two dogs weighing a total of 40 pounds are likely to fit inside a stroller that can hold up to 60 or 70 pounds. In these larger strollers, you will be sure to have a cabin big enough for multiple pets.

For example, the PetZip Happy Trailer will hold up to 75 pounds and the interior cabin measures: 28″L x 17″W x 24″H. I have two French Bulldog-Pug mix dogs that weigh 26lbs and 23 lbs. In the sitting position, they measure about 12-13″ across and fit easily into the Happy Trailer cabin. Sometimes one dog lies down and the other sits. They both can lie down together, but they never choose this option. The two dogs also fit happily into the Gen7Pets Jogger, which measures: 26″L x 14″W x 22″H. There is a lot of extra room for them in the Pet Gear NV Stroller, which measures: 30″L x 13″W x 22″H. The Pet Gear AT3 (30.5″L x 14″W x 24″H) and Jogger (30″L x 13″W x 22″H) also have cabins large enough to accommodate more than one pet.

The Gen7Pets Promenade (25″L x 13″W x 21.5″H) is a medium-sized stroller with a 50lb weight limit and a large cabin for multiple pets.

 These are just a few examples of stroller cabins that can accommodate more than one pet. Most pet strollers have an enclosure that is mesh to protect your pets from jumping out, but many have two tether clips for two leashes. The PetZip Happy Trailer actually has three tether clips.

Strollers for Multiple Pets

You can choose a pet stroller that will carry multiple pets based on the weight that the stroller can hold or the size of the compartment. If you are taking your pets short distances then cabin size may not be of concern, but you might want your pets to be more comfortable during a long journey.specialed three dogs

 

Larger strollers that carry pets 100-150lbs include the Pet Gear Roadster and Expedition, Solvit Houndabout large stroller, and the DoggyRide Novel and Original. They have plenty of room for multiple pets to ride any distance or length of time.

The medium-sized strollers that carry between 50 and 75 lbs include the PetZip Happy Trailer, the Kittywalk Double Decker, 5th Avenue, Original, Royale and Emerald SUV, the Pet Gear AT3 and Jogger and the Solvit Hound About medium stroller.

Smaller strollers that carry 45 pounds or less include the Petzip Walkie, Urban Vogue, 3 in 1 and sport strollers, Pet Gear Special Edition, Sportster and Happy Trails. The small strollers can easily accommodate two pets, but don’t go by weight limit alone.

Another factor to consider is whether the stroller has a safety tether, or more than one tether to clip onto your pet’s leash or collar. The tether is a feature that is important to some people because it will keep your pet centered in case of sudden stops, starts, or turns. A safety tether also allows you to keep the windows open without worrying about the escape of your pet. Some strollers have more than one safety tether, like the PetZip Happy Trailer, which has 3 tether clips, and the PetZip Monogram, which has 2 tether clips.
