To Zip Or Not To Zip

Many people ask me what the big deal is about zipping or not zipping up a pet stroller. There are people who feel that their pet is more secure in a stroller with a zipper that runs from side to side. However, there are also people who want to be able to hold their pet in one hand and open the stroller cabin with the other. I truly think you can do this with a Zip or a No- Zip stroller, but it comes down to preference. Your pet is safe in either type of stroller. Each is also equipped with at least one safety leash inside the cabin.

The No-Zip strollers have a locking clasp that connects the stroller canopy to the cabin. The cabins in the No-Zip stroller have an elevated paw rest that has a hidden metal bar around the rim. Many pets enjoy putting their paws up on the cabin frame to let the wind blow in their faces. The stroller with zippers can either have the same type of cabin with the elevated paw rest, or the zippered mesh comes all the way down to the bottom of the cabin.

The Gen7Pets Jogger is an example of a zippered stroller with a cabin that has a paw rest.

New! Pet Gear No-Zip Happy Trails Stroller

Pet Gear created the innovative No-Zip technology to take their pet strollers to the next level. This easy latching system allows you to get your pet in and out of the stroller with ease. The system also created a place for your pet to rest his paws. Many pets like to ride propped up so they have the best view of the outdoors. The panoramic view provided by the No-Zip strollers adds to the enjoyment of the ride for your pet!


Pet Gear also paid attention to the comfort of the owner when they designed this easy-to-use stroller. The handle height is 40 inches from the ground. This is important especially if you are tall because you don’t want to kick the stroller when walkiing. There is a parent tray for keys and drinks. The large storage basket underneath will accommodate pet toys or groceries. The fabric used on the cabin is 600 Denier nylon, which is easily spot-cleaned. The No-Zip also folds with one hand and will stow away in any car.
