There are several reasons you might want a pet stroller that rides close to the ground. These strollers, and bike trailers, are often designed to carry a large dog, more than 75 pounds. The most popular breed of larger dog that strollers are bought for are bulldogs!
Larger pets can be harder to push or pull in a pet vehicle and it is easier to steer the vehicle when it sits closer to the ground.
Larger pets also tend to shift positions inside the cabin making it more difficult to keep the pet stroller from veering off to one side or the other. Pet strollers designed to carry heavier dogs have reinforced cabins so that veering is kept to a minimum. Doggyride makes a jogger-stroller that has a wheel alignment system, which does a great job of keeping the stroller from veering.
Many times people purchase a pet stroller for their larger dog who is no longer able to exercise as much, or has been injured. Cabins that sit closer to the ground make it easier for the larger pet to get inside. Many times the larger pet feels more comfortable in a moving stroller that has a lower point of gravity.
DoggyRide is a top-rated pet stroller company that caters to the larger pet. The Novel and Original strollers will carry pets up to 100 pounds. They offer the standard stroller, the Original, and more lightweight version, the Novel. Each of these strollers also comes in the jogger-stroller version, with the wheel alignment system.
Pet Gear has two low-riding pet strollers, the Expedition (up to 150lbs) and the Roadster (up to 100lbs). The Expedition is popular because it travels on 4 wheels, fully balancing a larger dog that may decide to shift positions inside the cabin.
Pet Ego has the Comfort Wagon bike trailer that can be converted to a pet stroller with the optional strolling kit. This is a luxury wagon with its large, air-filled tires and its ability to carry up to 165lbs.
Solvit Products also makes a medium and a large Houndabout bike trailer. Each of these trailers can be converted to a stroller with the optional kit. These trailers can carry up to 110lbs and were recently redesigned with aluminum frames.
DoggyRide is the invention of Matthys van Leeuwen in 2003. His products were inspired by his love of biking and exercising with his dog. His company has been developing market-leading dog bike trailers, dog joggers and dog strollers. DoggyRide has a presence in the Netherlands and the United States, with products being sold in eighteen different countries across the globe!
To celebrate ten years of being in business, DoggyRide created the limited edition, fully loaded Novel10 Bike Trailer. The Novel10 has a black frame and a Holland orange cabin.
Special items that are included are the cargo roof rack, in black, the luxury 2 inch dense foam pet mat, for a perfectly comfortable ride, and a kickstand. The kickstand is a wonderful accessory to have because it keeps the cabin from tipping when you are loading or unloading a larger dog. The Novel10 has a sunroof that can be unzipped, or you can choose to unzip the entire front door for those that like to stick out their heads! For added comfort, there is a thick head rest sewn into the front opening.
The Novel10 has a 110 pound weight limit, which includes whatever you might want to carry on the cargo rack. The cabin can be used as a crate or a tent. The cabin has legs, that are removable, for stability. The side walls are reinforced with removable bars. This helps prevent your dog from leaning into rotating wheels. The matte black frame is made of a lightweight, anti-rust aluminum alloy. You won’t find a more luxurious ride for your dog than the DoggyRide Novel10.

There are many dog strollers on the market, but DoggyRide is a leader in the safety, comfort and versatility of their dog trailers and dog strollers.
Their most innovative feature is the wheel alignment system that is found on the Original and Novel Dog Jogger-Strollers. These two strollers, which can carry 100 lbs and 110 lbs respectively, are rated as the best strollers for dogs over 45 pounds. When jogging with your dog, strollers tend to veer, especially if your dog shifts his weight inside the cabin. The wheel alignment system adjusts for that movement and keeps your stroller traveling straight. The Dog Jogger-Stroller has a 12 inch front wheel that can swivel or lock into place. DoggyRide is the only company to offer the wheel alignment feature!
The Dog Jogger-Stroller has 20 inch air-filled rear tires for a smooth ride. The tires easily release and the cabin folds for convenient storage. This stroller is suitable for any dog, but it caters to the older, larger and disabled dog with it’s low center of gravity and accessible point of entry.
There are two options for the jogger-stroller, the Original and the Novel. The main difference between the strollers is the Novel is constructed of a lightweight, aluminum alloy frame that is of a higher quality than the Original.

5.0 out of 5 stars Doggie Ride, July 8, 2012
This review is from: DoggyRide Original Dog Jogger-Stroller -Urban Red- DRORJS09-RD (Misc.)
We absolutely love the Doggie Ride. It took about 4 or 5 times for our dog to get the hang of getting in and out of it. She was a bit shy about climbing into it at first. Now she loves it. This is extremely well made. Everything is collapsable or removable with simple buttons or levers or pins. This thing could not have been better designed. The wheels pop off in an instant with the push of a button. The front wheel comes off by simply pulling a lever. The handle is removed by pulling two pins, and the cabin collapses by pulling one pin and dropping a cross bar. So if space is an issue, you could have the entire stroller collapsed and put away in less than one minute. We have been using ours for about a month now and could not be happier with our purchase.
I did quite a bit of research before choosing this stroller. If you want a extremely well made, sturdy, easy to use, top of the line stroller, this is the one to get.
I just got this stroller/jogger yesterday…absolutely love the product. I have an English bulldog and she loves it. Rides really smooth, easy to assemble, I also got the bed that comes with it and it fits perfectly. This is ideal if you want to take your pup with you to fairs, parades, amusement parks etc. Its collapsable too. Speedy delivery too!!! Thanks again!
Excellent Choice for Injured Dog
I used the stroller for my PitBull 65# that had torn both hind cruciates. It gave me an opportunity to keep her included in our active lifestyle. We used it while waiting for surgery and convalesing for months afterwards. The stroller is designed for big dogs with large tires that gave her a comfortable ride. It turns easily for one-handed pushing, and is easy to collapse and take with you. This purchase made a huge difference in my dogs recovery as she did not have to wait at home for months in a crate by herself.
The Novel Stroller is made very nicely, lots of attention to detail such as velcro fasteners for the clear plastic (for when it rains) covering the opening, ability to clip the harness or collar into the stroller for safety, and additional storage in the back of the stroller secured with a pocket and also a place for a water bottle. Looks sturdy and well-made.
