Dog Stroller

Has anyone used a dog stroller with their Havanese? Is there one particular stroller that anyone can recommend?

While I don't plan to use the stroller in lieu of walking our dog, I thought it might be a handy tool to have when I fly across country with my three kids and puppy. The prospect of keeping track of the three kids, their carry-on bags, the puppy in his approved carry-on bag, and my own rolling carry-on is a bit daunting... I am thinking that I might find it a little easier if I can push the puppy in a stroller.

Dawna has a Pet Gear All Terrain.
She said this is a good site to look at them, but sometimes you can find them cheaper other places.

Great link, Melissa!

I think my Gucci would like being strolled around! LOL

I agree, it would simplify some traveling matters.

Good luck,
Kara

I am in the process of talking my eldest daughter(she's all of 8) that the puppy need exercise to walk not be wheeled around in a stroller. I have a feeling this dog is going to be playing lots with dolls and pretend strollers!!

We bought one on sale at Petsmart for $50. Pam uses it all the time if she is taking one dog into a show. It's an ElCheapo version, but folds up and really works okay.

Then we found a Baby Jogging Stroller for sale on the side of the road for $15. It has something like 16" bicycle wheels on it. Sort of like this: http://www.joggingstroller.com/Baby-...-Single-16.pro The baby seat snapped off and it is a perfect fit for one of the wire crates and then another crate can be tied on top of that one and a little grooming table top on the second crate. Works great for two dogs.

Then another day she came home with a double baby jogging stroller that she found also for sale beside the road, but we haven't fooled around with it yet. She paid 20 bucks for the double one.

I never tried to put Bugsy in a stroller, he does great running on his own after the big dogs. He is ok in a bag/carrier, but prefers to have all 4 paws on the ground.

Tom,
I wanted the baby jogger for the dog! Did you modify it or do your dogs ride in it without being netted in? When I looked at the dog strollers even the ones higher up in price weren't really built for jogging or hiking. They looked really cheap compared to what was avialable for children. I was looking for something my husband could jog with and we could take down trails.

The baby seat snapped out and the smaller size wire crate jambs down in there perfectly. The stroller folds up and the wire crate does too.

Thanks for the link to Justpetstrollers.com. It is a very helpful, well-organized site. And, much to my surprise, their brick and mortar store is local for me (in Milwaukee). I just bought the Petzip Jogger (see photo, from their website). It is a bit smaller than the AT3, and I thought it would better meet my needs. Justpetstrollers actually has very good prices, as well as a price match and free shipping.
