Pet Strollers for Pampered Pets

Doggie Stroller: Spoiled Sweet or Spoiled Rotten?

Pet strollers can be a heavy subject for some folks – to stroller or not to stroller. But for me, it's pretty cut and dry - I think North would freak out if I tried to put him in this instead of walking him! With celebs making pet strollers more popular, it seems that I see them everywhere now! Although this may be great for older doggies that can't walk too far, or even kitties (since we know fresh air is good for them too), I think it might be best to walk Fido . . . since it's exercise after all! But, if you do have a pup that needs a stroller, this model from Snooty Pets ($190) can have your dog out and about with you, minus the leash. What do you think? Pet strollers: Spoiled Sweet or Spoiled Rotten?

I would never get this to actually take my dogs for a walk. They walk and they love to. The only reason I might like it is maybe you could get them into stores if they were in it???? I love to take my dogs everywhere, but it's very limited as to where they can go.

My French Bulldog loves to go into the "city" part of Philadelphia to visit the parks and the shops, but he can't walk as far as we need to go - Frenchies are just not made for long distance trips, especially when it is hot out. I've had my eye out for a less expensive pet stroller for a while - it'd be great for us. Maxwell could walk for a bit, hop in the stroller when he's tired out, then walk again after he rested. Also would be good for carrying the purchases we make along the way.

I linked to this stroller in the past pet stroller post. Hmm. I think dogs should walk if possible, but this is good for situations where walking is impossible, and for kitties who enjoy going for a stroll. I have an atrium my cats can safetly go out on, but if I didn't, I would get one of these to walk them (if they liked it). I was going to get one for vet visits, but I didn't like that it didn't come apart to become a car seat. I'd have to take them out and put them in the car seat, then take them out and put them in the stroller at the vet, which is dangerous.

Bulldogs can't walk long distances or go running with you, so there is a guy in my town who got his a stroller. It's SO funny to see him jogging with this giant bulldog strapped into a stroller, and the dog always has a big stupid bulldog grin. So yes, for most dogs I would say this is a ridiculous waste. But for some, this is a great way to get your dog some fresh air.

Dogs aren't meant to be carried or put in a stroller!!!

DOGS ARE MEANT TO WALK, if they don't, they develop behavioral problems and muscle deterioration (in extreme cases). The only way I would get a stroller for my dog would be for hip dysplacia or arthiritis in the hips (like my dog Oreo has), but other than that, I wouldn't do it.

I bought one for my cat, that makes more sense to me than putting a dog in one

in our community, owners are not allowed to walk their dogs, so you actually see a lot of these pet strollers. It does look weird but they put their pets there until they reach the outside of the park and let the dogs run free

This is ridiculous! Unless your doggie is disabled!

marinermandy - i completely agree with you. dogs are getting fatter and fatter. i'm sure people who buy thise stroller things are the same people who cook up the fatten Rachel Ray doggie meals ... dogs eats a bunch of fattening (non-dog) food and then goes in the stroller for a walk. SO AWFUL! dogs need to walk. they have four legs and they need to use them.

It's like we're trying to extend the obesity epidemic to our pets as well. My dog would hate that thing, he loves walking around and sniffing everything. If you're walking and you want to take your pet, then they should walk as well.

I can't stand pet strollers!! Spoiled rotten! Though I do understand if someone needs to use one out of necessity for an older or disabled dog. :)

I said spoiled sweet. I live in the city so sometimes, I can't have Fuji walking around freely. I wouldn't spend $190 though.

Heeeeeey, I voted other....and it didn't show up!!! I say Other--if your dog is old and can't walk...then it's a great idea. However, if it's a laziness factor (on the part of the owner), or coolness...then spoiled!
