Pet jogging strollers don’t need to only be used to run with your pet. These pet strollers offer some amenities that other strollers lack.
In most cases, the jogger strollers have air-filled tires. This feature makes the ride smooth for your pet and the stroller easy to maneuver. The tires are also often larger than other classes of strollers, which also leads to a smoother ride.
Some joggers have a front wheel that swivels and is also able to be locked. This option is nice to have when you are traveling over different types of terrain. When the wheel is in swivel mode, this is good for traveling at lower speeds and over smooth ground. Sometimes the stroller gets difficult to steer when riding over gravel or uneven pavement, so having the option to lock the front wheel is handy.
Handle height is an important feature when you want to run behind a stroller. Kicking the wheels will tend to slow you down or make you have to lean forward and this doesn’t make a productive outing. Pet jogging strollers have a handle height of at least 37 inches from the ground.
Gen7Pets has a new stroller on the market, the Jogger. Gen7Pets is a company known for their attention to detail and their quality fabrics. They spent a great deal of time in the design phase creating what are known as “Smart Features” for their products. The Jogger has 11-inch EVA foam tires, with ball bearings, that never run flat. This feature is appealing to many people who don’t like to fuss with air pumps or flat tires. The larger tire size allows for easy navigation while jogging or running with your pet. This stroller has a zippered storage basket underneath so your personal items don’t fall out while you are on the move. It also has a 40 inch handle height for maximum comfort behind the stroller.
Pet Gear makes a Jogger stroller that has been a popular choice for runners for many years. It has 12- inch air-filled tires and comes with a pump for emergencies. It has a nearly 42 inch handle height! The front tire swivels, but can also be locked into place for off-road activities. Pet Gear clearly knew what active owners needed when they designed this stroller long ago.
The DoggyRide Jogger-Stroller is the gold standard in jogging with your pet. DoggyRide has definitely tapped into the active pet owner’s needs. The sturdy cabin has side supports that prevent your pet from leaning on the rotating tires. The lightweight, aluminum frame makes it easy for you to push the stroller. Large, air-filled tires create a smooth ride. The key feature is the wheel alignment system, which keeps the stroller from veering to one side or the other when you pet changes positions inside the cabin.
Winter seems likes it is going to last forever. With snow on the ground in 48 states, what else are you to believe? Cold rain and snow means you need to cover up your pets when taking them for a stroller walk or run. They like the wind and rain even less that you do!
There are dog strollers that come with a weather cover and others that require a separate purchase.
DoggyRide pet strollers and bicycle trailers require a separate purchase of a weather cover. All of the high quality cabins in the DoggyRide line have this accessory available.
The PetZip Happy Trailer comes with a weather cover. This is a versatile pet stroller that also comes with a bike tow bar so you http://perfectpetstroller.com/online-store.html#!/PetZip/c/20858323can quickly change it into a pet bicycle trailer.
Pet Gear has a variety of strollers with a weather cover available for purchase separately: Sportster, Special Edition, Happy Trails, AT3, and the Jogger. The No-Zip NV Stroller has the weather cover included with the purchase price.
Pet Ego has the Comfort Wagon pet bicycle trailer that has an optional weather cover for purchase. This is the only stroller with this option.
Most pet strollers do have windows that can be zippered closed so your pet is protected from the elements. Or, there is a canopy that does a good job protecting your pet from the rain. So no matter which pet stroller you choose, there will be some protection. But if you plan to go on a long journey, it is nice to have the option of a weather cover just in case!
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.
The oh so handsome bulldog is not exactly built for running marathons. With an average weight of 50 pounds, short legs and a large midsection, the bulldog is the perfect candidate for a pet stroller.
PetZip makes a great, well-made stroller that is ideal for that robust bulldog who will probably tire easily during an outing at the park. The Happy Trailer is a sturdy dog stroller capable of carrying a 75 pound animal. Air-filled tires assures a smooth ride and a swiveling front wheel makes maneuvering a breeze. Your bulldog will have great visibility in the Happy Trailer and plenty of room to sit, stand and lie down. The versatile Happy Trailer comes with an attachment to become a bike trailer.
DoggyRide also makes two great, sturdy dog strollers that are perfect for the full-size bulldog. The Original and Novel strollers have a slightly larger cabin than the Happy Trailer yet hold more weight, 100 and 110 lbs respectively. The Novel has a lightweight, aluminum frame that weighs 8 pounds less that the Original stroller. Both strollers have air-filled tires and a swiveling front wheel. The DoggyRide strollers also have a low-to-the-ground point of entry, making it more accessible for the shorter bulldog to hop inside.
A roomy, sturdy cabin, great visibility and air-filled tires enables your bulldog to have a comfortable ride in a pet stroller.

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.
Below are several reviews:
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.
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.
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.
