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.
Whether you have more than one dog, or take care of someone else’s, walking multiple dogs can be challenging. If you have two or three smaller dogs, the leash connecter allowing you to use just one leash makes the job easier. The problems lie in walking dogs of different sizes, with the smaller dogs obviously not being able to go the same distance as the bigger dogs.
For example, if you have a Lab who likes to run 5 miles, but also a Yorkie who simply can’t even walk that far, what do you do? Some people actually carry the small dog while letting the bigger dog get in his exercise. Others enlist the service of a pet stroller, and the last option is to leave the small dog at home.
A pet stroller is a simple solution to make sure the smaller dog doesn’t feel left out. Perhaps you have three dogs of similar size, but one just doesn’t feel like going the distance that day. A pet stroller gives that pup a rest while his buddies carry on.
One thing to keep in mind when choosing a pet stroller for walking multiple dogs is the wheel size of the stroller. Larger wheels are a better choice because the stroller will be easier to control with other walking dogs at your side. If possible, choosing a pet stroller with one center wheel may also make steering the stroller easier. Good examples of strollers with one center wheel are the Pet Gear No-Zip NV and Special Edition strollers.
