Question Dog stroller?

I am looking into buying a smaller dog stroller for my 6 lb Havanese puppy. She is 6 months old. I like to take her along with me but there are places I need to have her in a carier. I use a back pack type dog carier that can be wheeled too but I do not like how it puts her side ways when I wheel her. Also it draws a lot of attention in stores.

I looked at Outward Hound's little dark blue stroller and wondered if that would work.

http://www.entirelypets.com/wa.html?mr:trackingCode=4E938A05-EC27-DF11-9DA0-002219319097&mr:referralID=NA&origin=pla&mr:adType =pla&mr:ad=17558089630&mr:keyword={keyword}&mr:mat ch={matchtype}&mr:filter=39002458630&gclid=COGgtPP 8lLMCFW1yQgodWD4A5w

This would also put her in front of me instead of trailing behind me like in the back pack dog carier on wheels.

Anyone familiar with this stroller or another smaller lower to the ground stroller for dogs? I want a darker color.

this is the stroller I have, and honestly, I ADORE it!! It is light, easy to use, plently of room/ventilation and secure for Tillie and is awesome to carry stuff in!! I don't know how I survived her first year without a stroller! As silly as I feel sometimes pushing her in it, it is SO worth it.

Thanks Tammy! How big is Tillie? I am glad you feel so possitive about the stroller.

This is the one that I have. With some additional parts purchased, it converts to a bike trailer which is what I primarily use it for. It seems a little pricey (about $325 for the trailer/stroller combo) but I absolutely love it. I have two Havs, about 9 months old one 17 lbs and one 14 lbs and they both fit nicely in this mini version. This website has a lot of stroller options if this isn't the right one for you. Hope that helps!

Thanks for the website. That bike trailer is dog on cute! The videos on there are fun to watch. I think I need more something for store shopping but I will go to the website to look at some other options. Thanks!

Here is a link to all of Amazon's current offering for dogs: http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=sr_nr_n_...nid=2619534011

There are lots of colors to choose from.

I bought a stroller that would fit both of my dogs (12 + 16 lbs). I measured them laying side by side and looked at the interior dimensions of strollers to make sure they would fit. They do, and they love to go in the stroller.

it is no longer being carried not carrying it on Amazon, but Discount Ramps has it on their clearance page. You may not want to get one this large, but your puppy will not stay tiny, and it is hard to predict how much he will eventually weigh.

Tillie is on the small side at 9 lbs, but there is plenty of room for a 12-13 lb hav, I bet...

I have that stroller and love it! I wanted to get a cheap stroller for Fred after he had knee surgery. I actually fell in love with the stroller and so did my dog sitter. She still uses it for my 7 lb Bella! It is so light and easy. I had the AT3 very expensive stroller, but sold it because it was too heavy and cumbersome. This little Outward Hound one is so easy to fold up and throw into the back of my car.

This is fred in the stroller. You can see he has plenty of room and he is 15 lbs.

If anyone can make a suggestion about how to keep Henry IN the stroller, please let me know.
We have been practicing here around the house but he always wants to jump out.
