If ONE More Person Asks...






WHY do you NEED a stroller for your dog....
Here...let me give you just a couple of MY reasons...


MUCH Calmer Vet Visits!

Trips to the vet become easier with the stroller.  When I place Chloe or LadyBug in their stroller, it is SO much more comfortable and stress-free for them to be transported from the car without being investigated or hassled by other pets in the lobby.  Their stroller keeps the girlz off the floor and other surfaces visited by sick dogs all day. 



Sometimes my daughter and I take the dogs to the Outlet and let me tell you...The Store Owners appreciate dog owners having their dogs completely enclosed!!

Dog shows, picnics, festivals and other outdoor events can be fun to share with your dog. But they also mean dealing with crowds, bugs, other potentially aggressive dogs, trash and confusion. Give your dog a safe place to observe the festivities!!  We use the stroller as a confined space for the girlz when it’s needed!!  It provides a safe and familiar den for napping while we have guests over.

Sidewalks can give paws a beating!!  For those of us who live in Upstate NY, road salt can dry and irritate paw pads. City dogs have to negotiate all kinds of debris on sidewalks. A dog stroller keeps your dog clean and off any broken glass, trash, chemicals or other hazards on the sidewalk.

We have found that boat and RV travel is MUCH easier with the stroller. We can easily transport the girlz from place to place without worrying that they’ll get loose and run away in a strange place, like near a highway. The girlz'  don’t particularly like walking on the dock when the water is a bit choppy.  It helps to ease their anxiety by helping them onto the boat using the stroller.

Dogs who are recovering from an injury or surgery enjoy getting fresh air even if they can’t walk very far!!   It stimulates them to get some sun, sample some new smells and check out some new surroundings!!   The  stroller keeps them comfortable, and they’re happy to be able to go outside with us!!

Unleashed dogs can pose a threat to your small dog if they’re aggressive or unsocialized. Keep your dog safe from other dogs in a dog stroller. 

Less Stressful Evacuations:  We recently DID this when we were in Minnesota...traveling in the RV last month:

We had to move to the storm shelter in preparation for a tornado, but it would also work in the case of an earthquake, hurricane, fire or other emergency, it’s SO much easier in a stroller. Carry a familiar blanket, toys, snacks, food, water, bowls and pickup bags with your dog to provide comforts of home and eliminate the danger of the dog getting loose or running away out of fear during transport.

Makes perfect sense to me. If we had small dogs I might invest in one too.

I think it's a great idea. Kind of like a crate on wheels.

Our mommy would ask how to open the stroller so she could pet you girls!

Our "no walking Amish cruising wagon" also converts into a stroller. Since the boys are still young we plan to use it when the streets are too hot for paws.

Your Pals,

Wish my dogs could fit in a stroller! Sounds like a great idea to me!

I think it's a great idea!!! And, I think they're gettin' more popular too, so I think you'll probably be gettin' less looks as time goes by!
I have even seen them large enough for ME!! Butts, they're really expensive, and Ma doesn't want to go that way yet, cause I'm a hyper butt and she thinks I'll just knock it over barkin' at other doggies...pfffffft!!
I say 'YES'! to the stroller!
Kisses,
Ruby ♥

As you know we are a two buggy family. I tell people that they are jealous because my babies get to ride around in luxury and frankly I don't always trust the humans. We did have one incident. A low life A-hole tried to steal Silvie when she was a puppy. Never again. I do not trust crowds and I do not want people pawing my babies. I have no idea where their hands have been...

If I had a dollar for every judgey look I've gotten since I got Fe's stroller, I could pay for his darn ACL surgery. I get it folks, dogs are dogs and they WANT to walk, but he can't right now and it's either this or he stays home. TAKE YOUR JUDGEY FACE ELSEWHERE> **sigh** Thanks for letting me get that off my chest.
