Whether you have a senior dog or a dog recovering from surgery, a dog stroller is the best way to get them outdoors for some fresh air! Pet strollers are used for a variety of reasons. If you live with a senior they help avoid stress on your dog's body! Stress can include joint pain, arthritis, or recent surgery. Strollers also function as a crate on wheels. Your dog or cat remains safe wherever you go!
Some of these range from jogger pet strollers, pet bike trailers, dog carriers to a simple doggy-ride for your dog! There are many features across all ten options listed here for every pet owner from strollers that are easy to fold, have zipper-less entry systems, large wheels, storage baskets, weather cover, heavy duty wheels, and even cup holders. Others accommodate small dogs and some are designed for large dogs. Some are even suitable as cat strollers!
Our staff identified these ten as the dog strollers worth looking at for your four-legged friends. Whichever you choose for your dog, we found strollers with shock absorbers come in handy and those with rear wheels really helped us with hills. The rain cover is key as well and those that have zipper-less entry systems were definitely on the short list of faves. The best part is some of these double as travel carriers and keep dogs safe from the elements and other off-leash dogs, too! We hope we've made it easier to narrow down your list and having a cup holder (not to mention, a no-zip stroller) is very convenient.

Happy trails to you! These dog strollers will make your life with seniors more enjoyable and a jogger stroller is perfect for a dog that likes to get out, but is recovering from surgery or tires easily. These are not meant for only small dogs, but large dogs with arthritis that love daily adventures on the trail with you. In this case, a heavy duty pet stroller is likely the best option or a bike trailer may work pending your lifestyle. Perhaps hitting trails with rough terrain is part of your workout regiment so don't forget your best friend even if they've slowed down a bit.
If you travel a lot then one of the strollers that also turns into a pet carrier or car seat that has lightweight features should be on your research list. You can find dog stroller blankets on Etsy, too!
