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.

Best Strollers for Bulldogs

 Clyde_The_BulldogThe oh so handsome bulldog is not exactly built for running marathons. With an average weight of 50 pounds, short legs and a large midsection, the bulldog is the perfect candidate for a pet stroller.

PetZip makes a great, well-made stroller that is ideal for that robust bulldog who will probably tire easily during an outing at the park. The Happy Trailer is a sturdy dog stroller capable of carrying a 75 pound animal. Air-filled tires assures a smooth ride and a swiveling front wheel makes maneuvering a breeze. Your bulldog will have great visibility in the Happy Trailer and plenty of room to sit, stand and lie down. The versatile Happy Trailer comes with an attachment to become a bike trailer.petzip happy trailer

DoggyRide also makes two great, sturdy dog strollers that are perfect for the full-size bulldog. The Original and Novel strollers have a slightly larger cabin than the Happy Trailer yet hold more weight, 100 and 110 lbs respectively. The Novel has a lightweight, aluminum frame that weighs 8 pounds less that the Original stroller. Both strollers have air-filled tires and a swiveling front wheel. The DoggyRide strollers also have a low-to-the-ground point of entry, making it more accessible for the shorter bulldog to hop inside.


A roomy, sturdy cabin, great visibility and air-filled tires enables your bulldog to have a comfortable ride in a pet stroller.
