Dog Strollers For Large Dogs

If you are looking for a dog stroller for large dogs, there are a few points you should be aware of before you actually commit to buying one.Large Dog Strollers

The first thing you should understand is that not all strollers are made equal, yes most of them are made in china, however, like any type of mechanical device, there are differences in the quality of parts used in the manufacture of pet strollers.

Many manufacturers produce unbranded strollers that are then branded by the importer. If you take a look at some of the dog strollers on such sites as EBay, you will probably find the same stroller with the exact same specs but with a different name. On the other hand, there are some Chinese manufacturers that produce good quality dog strollers for large dogs, such as those distributed by Gen7pets, Doggyhut, Aosom and Petgear.

Another manufacturer that produces top quality dog strollers for big dogs is Dutch Dog. Dutch Dog manufacture the Doggyride range of strollers and and pet trailers that can be towed behind a bicycle. The Doggyride strollers are built to a very high standard and well worth considering if you are in search of quality design and manufacture.

Cabin Size & Weight Limits:
Large dog strollers tend to be built with heavier duty parts to cope with the extra weight of the pet. Many also feature air-filled tires and suspension that help to absorb any shock from uneven or rough terrain. The listed weight limits are only meant as a rough guide and even if the stroller states that it will carry a pet of up to 85 Lbs, will your dog fit into the stroller? That’s why it is crucial to not only weigh your pet but also measure it as well.

Buying a stroller that is too small or one that cannot cope with the weight of the dog will not only confine your pet to an uncomfortable and cramped area, it could also cause premature mechanical breakdown.

Folded Size:

Large dog strollers are obviously wider and longer than the small or medium pet strollers. Therefore if you are planning to transport the stroller in your vehicle, it makes sense to check the folded dimensions to make sure it will fit into the trunk.

Wheels and suspension:

Wheels are an important part of any pet stroller. The air filled (pneumatic) tires provide more suspension than the solid wheels. Also, the machines with air filled wheels tend to be easier to push or tow and they are much quieter.

Some strollers/trailers also have rear wheel suspension, that, when coupled with air filled tires gives a smooth ride for your pet. Just imagine driving your car with solid wheels and no suspension and think how you would feel at the end of the journey. Now imagine how your pet would feel being bumped and bounced about. If you can afford the extra cost, it is well worth considering.

Sun Roof:

If you have a particularly tall dog that likes to get a good view of what’s going on around it, make sure the model you choose has a sun roof or opening that your dog can poke its head out of, otherwise it could become cramped and stressed in a confined area.

So how do you find the best stroller for a large dog?

The easiest and probably best way is to read the real user reviews such as those on Amazon. If you cannot find a review that answers you question, you can post it and wait for the answers to come back. I have personally used this method to choose between an assortment of items, from bread makers to fishing rods. Another Amazon tactic is to scan the top 100 best sellers within a particular category.
