Since my last post that talked about great bulldog strollers, two more sturdy strollers have come out: The Pet Gear Double stroller and the Gen7Pets Jogger stroller. The Jogger will carry 75 pounds of bulldog and the Double will hold up to 90 pounds.
Both of these strollers have a sturdy base that will support solid, heavy dogs like the bulldog. the strollers both have a cozy cabin and plenty of windows.
The Gen7Pets Jogger has EVA foam tires, otherwise known as “never-flat” tires. The Pet Gear Double stroller has 12 inch air-filled tires. The tires can quickly be released should you desire to take them off for storage or for putting into the car. The Double comes with an air-pump, and also with a weather cover for those days you get caught in the rain.
Both strollers have superior handle height; the Jogger is 40 inches high and the Double is 42 inches high. This is helpful if you choose to jog or walk quickly with your dog, because your feet won’t kick the wheels.
The Bulldog is one of the short-muzzled breeds that has an elongated soft palate. The soft palate, along with the hard palate, forms the roof of the mouth. It helps prevent food and liquids from getting into the nasal passages when swallowing. This flap hangs in the airway canal or falls into the larynx during inhalation. The result is noisy breathing, snorting and snoring. When these dogs get overheated, they tend to breathe more rapidly and the soft palate swells, causing them to gag in an effort to clear their airway.
It is important not to over-exert a bulldog when the weather is hot. They prefer a more stationary lifestyle! If your bulldog does appear to be overheated, a cool, wet towel under his feet, or sponging off his body, is a good idea. A squirt of lemon juice in the mouth is helpful too.
Bulldogs are one of the most popular dogs to own. They have been voted the best family dog. In 2012, the American Kennel Club rated the English Bulldog in the top 6 of most popular dog breeds, a distinction they haven’t seen in the last 75 years. Bulldogs are owned by many celebrities such as Brad Pitt, Adam Sandler and Pink, which adds to their appeal. They are also the 3rd most popular team mascot for schools in America.
Who can resist the lovable, low-maintenance bulldog?
