If you have a small dog, or a cat, it is very convenient to use a stroller to go to the vet, shopping, or traveling through the airport. You may also want to be able to remove the carrier from the stroller so you don’t have to take your pet out of the stroller.
Three options for pet strollers with a removable carrier include:
Pet Ego Quadro Stroller – This fashionable stroller will hold one or two Pod ILove carriers and a total of 15 pounds. The Pod ILove is a sturdy but soft carrier that will keep your pet safe and secure.
All of the KittyWalk pet strollers have removable carriers. KittyWalk makes strollers that hold smaller pets and then they have the larger SUV models that will carry up to 50 pounds. These strollers are sturdy, well-made and collapse for storage.
The American Chiropractic Association advises us not to carry a bag that weighs more than 10% of our body weight. That means if you weigh 150 lbs, then your bag shouldn’t weigh more than 15 lbs. The problem these days is that people, especially women, carry larger and larger shoulder bags to accommodate their ever-increasing list of must-haves including cell-phone, laptop, make-up, chargers and don’t forget pets. Carrying a bag that weighs more than 10% of your body weight causes unnatural movements of your upper and lower body, causing strain and possibly pain.
Many people are choosing not to worry about fashion and are using backpacks and wheeled carriers to transport their items from place to place. However, backpacks are only a solution if your wear both straps and secure the pack snugly to your back.
When it comes to carrying pets, the shoulder bag is the most commonly seen mode of transport, but carrying your furry friend all day can get uncomfortable for you and for your dog. Modern pet strollers and wheeled carriers are now fashionable as well as functional. Your dog has more room to stretch out, lie down and turn around in a pet stroller, than he or she does in a shoulder carrier. Many pet strollers have removable carriers so your dog can easily be moved to the car, the vet or the airplane.
Lighten the unbalanced load on your back and neck and invest in a pet stroller or wheeled carrier for your favorite little buddy. Keeping your muscles and spine healthy is one key part to remaining active and pain-free.
The ultimate pet travel stroller system comes to us from PetEgo. PetEgo was created in 2004 as a combination of three companies: United Pets, La Cinopelca and EGR. They are located in Chicago, IL and manufacture all things pet: travel products, sleeping items, strollers, apparel, leashes and more!
Pet Ego makes several truly classy pet strollers, and the Quadro Stroller System is one example. It begins with the lightweight aluminum stroller frame, then you add on the other components. The dimensions of this easily maneuverable stroller are: 29” H x 32” W x 36” D. With one hand you can swiftly make your way through narrow aisles or crowded streets. The Quadro is meant to carry one or two Pod ILove carriers or Pod ILove baskets and a maximum of 15 pounds. If you choose to use two carriers, be sure to evenly distribute the weight of your pet and/or purchases between them.
The Pod ILove carrier is a versatile stroller and bike carrier, car seat and shoulder carrier. The Pod ILove basket can be connected to the stroller or bike, or used as a shoulder carrier. The Quadro stroller frame comes with one frame clip and any additional clips can be purchased separately. These clips securely attach the Pod ILove basket and/or carrier to the stroller frame. There is a separate bicycle connection that allows you to attach the basket or carrier to the handle bars of just about any bicycle.
