Haha, I've not yet bought a stroller for my dude, but I carry him around in my arms if I need him off the ground and with me! I used to just haul him around everywhere in his carrier slung over my shoulder when I was socializing him. He now loves to be on the ground himself but i would love a little wagon that I could put him in when he gets a bit hot or tired.
The nice thing about the stroller is that it keeps them off the ground under tables where you have no idea what they might pick up and eat. You can also take them in places that don’t necessarily say “no dogs ”, but you just aren’t sure. No one seems to mind a small dog enclosed in a stroller. AND, they can haul all your bags for you when you are shopping! ;)

When i do eventually get one, i know i will be teased to hell and back but it'll be worth it! Plus Enzo is cute and sits very nicely in a shopping cart(that had a towel placed for him) So I'm sure he would adjust to a wagon or stroller well.
Yes, Ducky does the shopping cart thing, but where the stroller comes in handy is farmer’s markets, out door craft fairs, etc. It also keeps your dog off the ground and out of harm’s way (feet and big dogs) in those crowded settings. As far as teasing is concerned, maybe your peers (I don’t know your age) or family. But the general public is pretty used to dog strollers these days. I have never had anyone react other than to think it was cute!

I think strollers are great, especially for senior dogs, who have trouble walking. I think I have three or four strollers. I just ignore the naysayers.
It was also great for Kodi when he had his shoulder injury. Without it, he would have had to stay home and not come with us when we walked the other dogs!

I have added a stroller to my ever-growing list of puppy supplies! I don't jog but do try to walk for a half hour or longer every day and would love to take our new fur baby with me. Any recommendations for a particular model?
IMO, these are top notch. You do NOT want one that zips, and you don’t want to skimp on wheels. This is easy to push, sets up easily and has lots of room. It has lasted us for 8 years now with regular use. The cheaper one we had before this gave out after a couple of seasons.

I also have this stroller as well as a Gen7Pets Jogger and Gen7Pets Promenade. They are older but still sturdy and nice looking.
How does the zipper work on the two Gen7Pets ones? That is the one thing that would worry me. I like the clip closure of the Petgear SOOO much better than any zipper stroller I've seen.

My little girl Runtu has had a stroller since we were blessed with her. We bring her every where with us in it. We go to Lowe’s, Superwalmart, Dentist and doctor visits. Especially down to the VA and all the nurses and secretaries love her and it does keep her safe. I have PetGear just like those pictures above. Runtu just loves her safe little haven. We hike with her and this cart because the wheels work so well, when her little legs get tired we can continue our hike and put her in her cart and she rests….it is a brilliant piece of equipment for our Runtu.

What great eyebrows she has!!! ❤
