If you love to walk and have a puppy, or a small, sick, or old dog, you’ll want a dog stroller. The freedom it will give you to get back outside and enjoy some fresh air is not to be underestimated. Depending on your needs, probably one of the two strollers below will work well for you.
Pet Gear NO-Zip Pet Stroller with Dual Entry, Push Button Zipperless Entry, Gel-Filled Tires
When Wink was too old to walk, I got this stroller. At $200 ish, it had better be the mother of all strollers. And I’d have to say that it was. Extremely well-made and easy to use. (Since I was planning on holding off for possibly years before getting another dog, I sold it after Wink passed away.)
