Overview and Features
This compact pet stroller is perfect for small breed dogs. The stroller’s elevated paw rest design, complete with the panoramic view window will give your dogs and cats an unobstructed view of their surroundings, while also allowing you to keep a closer eye on your pets. Unfortunately, the stroller’s handlebar is not height adjustable and is instead fixed in place. In terms of height, the handlebar measures in at four feet vertically.
In terms of size, the stroller’s lightweight, compact design is one of its main selling points, especially for pet owners who don’t have major trunk space to work with.
Size and Weight Limit
Since this stroller is designed for small breed dogs and cats, it comes as no surprise that it has a very low max weight capacity of just thirty-five pounds. The stroller itself weighs just thirteen pounds. This stroller is not designed to accommodate medium or large sized breeds. Instead, it’s a better choice for toy and small breed dogs. If you’re looking for an affordable alternative designed for large breeds we recommend the Towerin Large Dog Cage Stroller Travel Carrier Carriage, which can handle dogs up to one hundred and twenty pounds.

The stroller’s twelve inch pneumatic Air Ride tires feature the quick-release design. Also included is a small air pump you can use when you’re on the go, should you notice the tires are low on air. The front wheel can be left unlocked for swivel mode, or you can lock the wheel in place if you’re travelling over difficult terrain.
The Air Ride tires not only make it easier for the stroller to glide over a variety of terrain types, but they also provide a much smoother ride for your pets.
The stroller is made out of water-resistant, six hundred denier material, allowing you to take your dog or cat out for a stroll, even in rainy weather.
Just like on a high-end stroller designed for infants and toddlers, this stroller also comes with a built-in parents tray, which allows you to store and secure important personal items such as your smartphone, keys, and wallet. It also comes with built-in cupholders so you can keep your hot or cold beverage close at hand.
The patented No-Zip design is one of the stroller’s leading features. The No-Zip design comes complete with an easy-lock latch as opposed to other models that feature a flimsy zippered closure instead. Now, you won’t have to struggle with a stubborn zipper and try to get your dogs secure in a hurry. The No-Zip design means you can easily get your pet in and out of the stroller within seconds, without the hassle.

Is the Stroller’s Handlebar Adjustable?
Unfortunately, no. This can pose a problem if you find that the handlebar is too low or too high for your height. The ability to adjust the stroller’s handlebar provides the runner or jogger with more control over the stroller. However, if you’re using the stroller for walking only, then this won’t be much of an issue.
Can the Stroller Handle Heavy Rainfall?
Yes. The waterproof six hundred denier material is designed to withstand light and heavy rainfall, keeping your pets nice and dry, even in inclement weather conditions.
Is it Easy to Teach a Dog How to Sit Still in a Dog Stroller?
This usually depends on the dog. However, dogs can be easily trained to sit back and relax and enjoy the ride, with practice and proper training techniques. To learn more, click here to read our article on how to teach your dog commands.
Is This an All-Terrain Dog Stroller?
Yes. This stroller is designed to take on a variety of terrain types including sand, dirt, gravel, uneven terrain, sidewalks, and asphalt. However, one downside is the fact that the stroller features pneumatic tires, which can pose a problem if you plan on taking the stroller on mountain trails or over terrain where a flat is possible. If that’s the case, then you may be better off with a stroller that comes equipped with foam tires.
Conclusion and Rating
While this stroller may not be able to handle medium and large breed dogs, it’s a great choice for small and toy breed pet owners. It’s versatile, able to tackle a variety of terrain types and comes equipped with a sturdy frame, top of the line suspension, and the popular No-Zip design that makes it easier to load and unload your pets. We gave this model a rating of four and a half stars out of five stars.]
