Just like people, dogs are happy when they get to experience the freedom and freshness of the outdoors. Dogs get to run, find new scents, and feel the cool ground under their feet. What about if your dog is injured, like he has a broken leg, an injured tendon or a lacerated paw pad? Likewise, what if your dog is older and is less able to ambulate, or if he has hip dysplasia and too much activity is painful to him?
There is a solution for injured and older animals to still be able to enjoy those long walks of the past. If you have a small dog, then carrying him is an option, but after a while your arms and back begin to ache. A pet stroller is a great way for you to still get your exercise while your dog gets to check out the surroundings. There are strollers for people who enjoy jogging and strollers for just walking around. Air-filled tires ensure a smooth ride and swiveling wheels make maneuvering simple. Pet strollers have comfortable cabins with pads on which your dog can sit or lie down. They have zippered mesh openings for good visibility and ventilation. Some have adjustable canopies to shield your pet from the sun and wind. An internal tether clip keeps your pet from jumping out of the cabin. Pet strollers make it easy to get around busy city streets with your pet, and you don’t have to worry about his safety. They easily fold up and fit into the trunk of your car, or the bus or train.
Many people initially need a pet stroller temporarily, and then find their pet loves to ride in it even after their injury has healed! People are more likely to get outside and exercise when they know their pet is also benefiting from the trip.
