Will My Pet Stroller Fit In My Car?

Whether or not a particular pet stroller will fit in your car is a question I often hear. There are several things to consider:

  1. The size of the car
  2. Whether the car is a hatchback or sedan
  3. Whether or not one or both rear seats will fold down if needed
  4. Whether or not one or more wheels can be taken off the stroller to fit more easily

It’s easy to see that the small pet strollers, like the Pet Gear Happy Trails, the PetZip Walkie, and the Gen7Pets Cruiser will fit into the trunk, or the back of most cars, but what about the DoggyRide Novel Jog Stroller, the Gen7Pets Jogger or the Kittywalk Royale SUV?

The larger strollers and the jogger strollers will still fit into most car trunks, in the back seat, or in the trunk with a back seat folded down. The DoggyRide strollers and bike trailers have quick-release rear wheels that can easily be taken off to fit into a smaller car.

The folded dimensions of the Doggyride Novel and Original strollers are: 31.5″L x 21″W x 4″H.  The trunk of a Nissan Altima, a mid-sized sedan, measures approximately, 50″W x 38″D x 22″H.

The Gen7Pets Jogger stroller has a front wheel that easily comes off if you find you need the stroller to be a little smaller when folded.  This stroller is about 40 inches long, 23 inches wide and 5 inches tall when folded.


The Kittywalk strollers have a removable carrier. The carrier can quickly be taken off by releasing the two bungee cords holding it to the base. Then you are left with the frame, which folds to be 33″L x 24″W x 12″H. The Kittywalk strollers will fit into just about any vehicle.
