Pet Strollers: 3 Wheels or 4?

Gen7Pets-G7-JoggerDoes one type of pet stroller seem to be more stable than another? That is a question I get asked quite frequently. There are few things to consider when choosing a stroller with one front wheel or two front wheels.

Many of the jogging pet strollers have just one front wheel. This style tends to support more weight and is very stable at speeds faster than walking will create. The one wheel on joggers often can be locked into place or left to swivel. Many people find that at higher speeds, locking the front wheel creates more stability. Pet buggies with three wheels tend to weigh a little more as many of them have air-filled tires. The air-filled tires exist for a smoother, more comfortable, ride.

Smaller strollers that are meant for lighter weight animals and/or traveling at slower speeds remain stable with four wheels. These wheels swivel, so they go whichever way you turn. Often 4-wheeled strollers ride closer to the ground which enables more stability for these lighter weight buggies.
