How many times have you taken your senior dog out with you, only to end up carrying him most of the time, leaving you with an aching back? Do you often leave your dog home alone missing all the fun, simply because he wouldn’t have been able to keep up with everyone else? Well my friends – those days are gone!
There are so many wonderful uses for the pet stroller –
- Senior dog that can’t walk as far as she used to
- Dog with arthritis or other joint problems who can still walk, but may have trouble walking back
- Dog recovering from illness or surgery
- Transporting puppies or kittens
- Even cats use the pet stroller!
I made this video using my Confidence Deluxe pet stroller so you could see for yourselves, all the wonderful features it has to offer.
I’d like to share the benefits it has brought to our lives
The love of my life is a blind Chihuahua/Min Pin named Red. She is approximately 16 years old and an absolute joy. She can’t walk too far so we go for lots of short strolls. When I want to take her for longer outings or on day trips, I couldn’t do it without the pet stroller. Although she only weighs about 9 lbs, carrying her for a few minutes causes back pain. I’ve taken it on buses and trains, and it’s so easy because it’s lightweight and folds up in seconds.
It makes me happy knowing I can include Red in more activities because of it. Although I originally bought the dog stroller for her, it turns out it had another use I never could have anticipated.
We have another dog named Jack, and one day within the space of a few hours, his back legs became paralysed. Long story short, he had spinal surgery and months of recovery. He was only allowed out a couple of minutes at a time to begin with, but he used to love walking around the neighbourhood visiting his two and four legged pals. With his neurologist’s approval, I would take him out and about in the stroller so he wouldn’t get depressed stuck in his crate all day every day.
There’s room enough for my two 10lb dogs, so if Jack gets tired after being out too long and needs a break, or we’re doing something where there will be lots of crowds, there’s room enough for both of them.
Another thing I love is how many people who have never heard of a pet stroller before, get to see one. They always come up, comment on Red and what a wonderful idea it is. Many even say how much their dog could benefit from having one. If I could help other dogs get out who would ordinarily be left behind, I’m thrilled.
Another, unforeseen benefit is an increase in the amount of walking I do. I am not a huge fan of exercising, even though I know I should!! Now that I have the stroller, I put Red in and off we go. I find I am walking further then I ever would if I were walking by myself.
There are a couple of points I’d like to mention, although drawbacks may be too strong of a word to use here.
The cup holders are certainly deep enough for cups and small bottles, but not deep enough to hold larger ones. Personally I’m not too bothered because I either put it in the basket underneath, or in the closed sunshade if I want easy access.
If you’re standing behind the handlebars and you reach over to put something in the stroller, or pet your dog, hold onto the stroller or your body will tip it backwards. It happened to me, but my dog was fine – protected by the sunshade. It’s not something that has ever happened on its’ own, only when I caused it.
A little bumpy over rough terrain, so I stick to paved sidewalks and paths.
The Confidence Deluxe Four Wheel Pet Stroller is a lifesaver!
I highly recommend a dog stroller because without one there are just too many things I wouldn’t be able to do. Buy one for yourself and see what I’m talking about.
