There are several reasons you might want a pet stroller that rides close to the ground. These strollers, and bike trailers, are often designed to carry a large dog, more than 75 pounds. The most popular breed of larger dog that strollers are bought for are bulldogs!
- Larger pets can be harder to push or pull in a pet vehicle and it is easier to steer the vehicle when it sits closer to the ground.
- Larger pets also tend to shift positions inside the cabin making it more difficult to keep the pet stroller from veering off to one side or the other. Pet strollers designed to carry heavier dogs have reinforced cabins so that veering is kept to a minimum. Doggyride makes a jogger-stroller that has a wheel alignment system, which does a great job of keeping the stroller from veering.
- Many times people purchase a pet stroller for their larger dog who is no longer able to exercise as much, or has been injured. Cabins that sit closer to the ground make it easier for the larger pet to get inside. Many times the larger pet feels more comfortable in a moving stroller that has a lower point of gravity.
