Dog Strollers, Dog Prams and Pet Pushchairs – so often misunderstood

Dog Strollers, Dog Prams and Pet Pushchairs are so often misunderstood

Dog strollers are so much more than a fashion accessory!

Dogs just love to explore and interact with other dogs. They like to meet humans and experience new things on a daily basis, no matter what age they are. It’s in their nature. So why should that suddenly stop if they become injured, infirm or old?
Because dog strollers are quite a new commodity, many non-dog owners (and even some dog owners) will criticise their purpose and argue that ‘dogs have four legs and therefore should walk’. There is truth in that, and yes, some dogs are lucky enough to go through life without needing a pet stroller, but there are situations where some dogs need help with their mobility. Like some humans who have wheelchairs, scooters and other mobility aids, shouldn’t your dog be entitled to such comfort too?
Most fit and healthy dogs don’t need to be pushed around in a stroller and some dogs are lucky enough to have the use of their legs for the rest of their lives. But there are cases where puppies, injured, disabled and senior dogs need help getting around instead of being confined at home and in the garden, never to see the outisde world again. Dogs just love to explore and interact with other dogs. They like to meet humans and experience new things on a daily basis, no matter what age they are. It’s in their nature. So why should that suddenly stop if they become injured, infirm or old?
The first ever dog strollers were very simple ‘pushchairs and buggies for dogs’, but now as you browse dog stroller sites and catalogues you will see that so much more design and functionality are being included into the manufacturing of them. From the basic ‘day to day’ stroller to the jog dog strollers and even to the bicycle dog trailers which allow your dog to join you on cycle trips.
So this article is to prove to those non believers why dog strollers and trailers are so useful to some dogs and their owners and why they are here to stay.

Still not convinced?

So if you still don’t think that dog strollers have a place in our society, the next time you see one on the street, why not ask the owner politely, why they use one. More often than not the reason will be one that is not related to vanity or trend. There will have a perfectly good reason why their dog is not walking on it’s own four legs.
If you are also thinking about getting a pet pushchair then ask other dog stroller owners what the advantages are. The list will be endless and you will soon see why these pet strollers are on the increase.
