Having a pet stroller at the vets office not only makes getting to and from easier but it gives the dog a safe place to be in the waiting room. It also makes transporting multiple dogs (or a litter of pups) much easier than if you had a large crate or each dog on a leash.
Another reason they are great for vet trips is simply that with a traditional carrier you can strain your back trying to carry your dog around. With a stroller you can simply push your dog(s) along and both of you will be happier for it!
Some owners have also found that having dogs of different sizes a stroller comes in handy on long walks. While your big ole German shepherd is more than happy to walk for 45 minutes it is likely the dachshund will not be trilled for that long.
Having a stroller allows you to finish walking the larger dog while allowing your smaller dog to still come along for the adventure. When the smaller dog gets tired they can just relax in the stroller the rest of the way.
Some people just like the stroller for the fact that more and more stores and restaurants are allowing dogs inside with their owners. With your dog in a stroller you are almost never going to be turned down when trying to go inside somewhere as you might be with a leashed dog.
The last main reason you may benefit from a pet stroller is if you have an injured or senior pet. If your pet cannot get around as easily as they used to then they will love a stroller. It will get them outside into the sun and fresh air without hurting or tiring them out!
There are many different types of strollers – ones meant for short walks and jogs and some that are “all-terrain” and are perfect for taking on camping trips or the like.
